India vs Australia 5th ODI Dream11: Match Preview
Story so far:
India and Australia have fought well throughout the series, keeping the series neck to neck (2-2) as we type this. Ashton Turner’s brilliant 84*, following the exploits of Peter Handscomb (117), and Usman Khawaja (91), helped put Australia over the line as they chased down 358 with 2.1 overs remaining!
India, batting first, posted a massive 358. Shikhar Dhawan’s back to form with 143 should be a huge relief for Team India as they prepare for the upcoming world cup. Rohit Sharma fell short of a century, scoring 95 in the 4th ODI.

India Vs Australia 5th ODI: Pitch Report
The pitch at Kotla has usually favored batsmen. However, more often than not, the pitch turns out to be unpredictable, keeping low and favoring spinners. Another high scoring game is predicted… is what I should say, but my instinct tells me this one will be a low to medium scoring match with spinners playing a key role.
Average 1st innings score: 277 (Last five List A matches)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 1 Lost – 4

India Vs Australia 5th ODI Dream11 Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Delhi boy Pant knows the conditions well and is bound to put up a good show in front of his home crowd! He should be preferred choice of WK.
Batsmen: Virat Kohli is a must have in any Dream11 contest while back-to-form Dhawan should also be backed. Coming on the back of match-winning scores, you can also include Handscomb and Turner in your squad. Mind you, Marsh is due a big score. Just saying…
All-rounders: Plenty of choices available in the All-rounders department. Marcus Stoinis is injured and it’s unsure whether he’ll play. Spinning all-rounders like Kedhar Jhadav and Glenn Maxwell should be considered in your playing 11.
Bowlers: Pat Cummins took 5 wickets in the last match so he seems like an obvious pick. Complete your bowling lineup with Bumrah, Kuldeep, and Zampa.
Captain & Vice Captain: Can you really not make Virat Kohli captain? Well, if you decided not to, you can pick between Rohit Sharma, U Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell, Kuldeep Yadav, or Dhawan.
Dream11 Team Suggestion #1:
Pant (wk), Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, P Handscomb, Khawaja, G. Maxwell, K. Jhadav, Jaspreet Bumrah, Cummins, Zampa, K. Yadav. Captain: Maxwell, VC: Rohit
Dream11 Team Suggestion #2:
A. Carey, V Kohli, Dhawan, U. Khawaja, A. Turner, G. Maxwell, Shankar, Zampa, Pat Cummins, K. Yadav, J Bumrah. Captain: Kohli, VC: Kuldeep Yadav.
India is expected to clinch the 5th ODI as Delhi can be a tough pitch to bat on and India knows the conditions better than the Australian side.
