After winning the second one-day match against Australia in a dominant manner. Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will count on his own form as well as the loss of key players by the Aussies to win this match as well. Ace fast bowler Bret Lee and wicket keeper James Hope will not be playing for their team due to injuries.
During a press conference, a confident looking Dhoni said that Australian team was on the back-foot because of the injuries, while India has gained momentum. He however maintained that they could not be considered as a weak side as they had the ability to bounce back out of any situation.
The pitch at the Firoz Shah Kotla will also decide as to how the match takes shape as it has been recently re-laid. During the Champions League, the pitch behaved poorly and the ball kept low and slow, the new track is expected to have some life and offer chances to the bowlers.
