IND vs AUS Toss Prediction

Just like the previous game, there is a good chance of dew settling in later on in the evening which will make it difficult for the bowlers to grip the wet ball. So even though the last three one-day internationals played at this ground have been won by the side batting first, the toss-winning skipper may still elect to bowl first.

India vs Australia

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

India played Rishabh Pant in the last game in place of MS Dhoni who has been rested for the final two games of the series. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was brought in place of Mohammed Shami who suffered a minor injury during the third ODI. Ambati Rayudu and Ravindra Jadeja were dropped to give KL Rahul and Yuzvendra Chahal some game time. Rahul is likely to bat at number three again with Virat Kohli pushing himself down to number four. Despite facing defeat in the last match, the hosts are expected to go unchanged for this series decider.

IND Key Players

Virat Kohli has scored the most runs in this ODI series of Australia’s tour of India and he is definitely the key man for his team in terms of batting. The skipper cracked back-to-back centuries in the second and third ODIs and he even has a century and a fifty from his five ODI innings at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan got back amongst the runs last time with scores of 95 and 143 respectively and they will be expected to give the team another solid start. Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah with nine and seven wickets respectively have been the pick of the Indian bowlers in this series. Bumrah has a three-wicket haul in the only ODI he has played at this ground and he also picked three wickets in the last game as well. While the pacer will be India's biggest hope with both the new ball and in the death overs, Kuldeep and Yuzvendra Chahal will be their best bets in the middle overs.

IND Recent Form

India have now lost their fourth one-day international out of the twelve they have played since the start of this year. They now have three wins and as many losses in their last six matches in the format. India's bowling and fielding performances have been very ordinary in the last couple of games. Their bowlers have looked flat and the dropped catches have cost them dearly. Batting, though, is not much of an issue for them at the moment.

India Predicted Playing 11

Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Rishabh Pant (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

Australia made a couple of changes to their side for the fourth one-day international as they brought Ashton Turner and Jason Behrendorff in place of Marcus Stoinis and Nathan Lyon respectively. Stoinis fractured his thumb while fielding in the third ODI at Ranchi and he is unlikely to recover from the injury in time for the fifth ODI. Turner replaced him in the last game and his marvelous effort with the bat means that he will probably be retained. With the Feroz Shah Kotla pitch being conducive to spin bowling, the visitors could bring Lyon back in place of either Behrendorff or Jhye Richardson.

AUS Key Players

Usman Khawaja is just seven runs behind Virat Kohli on the list of leading run-scorers in the series. The opening batsman is looking in terrific touch with scores of 50, 38, 104 and 91 in the four ODIs and Australia will be hoping that he is able to finish the series in style. Aaron Finch who scored 93 at Ranchi along with Peter Handscomb and Ashton Turner who played match-winning knocks of 117 and 84 respectively in the last game are the other key figures in this Australian batting line-up. Pat Cummins is continuing to impress with the ball and he is the leading wicket-taker in the series with 12 wickets. The fast bowler notched up a five-fer last time and he will once again pose the biggest threat to India, particularly with the new ball. Adam Zampa has taken eight wickets in the series and he together with Nathan Lyon will look to build pressure on India by curbing the flow of runs.

AUS Recent Form

Australia's four-wicket victory in Mohali was their third win in the seven one-day internationals they have played so far this year. After being downed in the first two matches of the ongoing series, the visitors have done really well to come from behind and level the series. Their batting has been the plus point for them in the last two games - they posted 300+ in the third ODI and then created history by chasing down a mammoth 358 last time. The Aussies have remained sharp in the field throughout the series.

Australia Predicted Playing 11

Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (wk), Jhye Richardson/Jason Behrendorff, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Adam Zampa

IND vs AUS Head to Head

India and Australia have now played 125 completed one-day internationals against each other with the former winning 49 of those and the latter 76.

The two countries have faced each other four times at the Feroz Shah Kotla in the fifty-over format and the hosts are leading the scoreline 3-1.

India emerged victorious by six wickets when they last played Australia at this ground in an ODI in October 2009. Electing to bat first, the Aussies could manage only 229/5 in their 50 overs before the hosts got home with 10 balls to spare.

India vs Australia Betting Odds

India begin as favorites amongst the bookmakers to win the fifth one-day international and they are being offered at odds of 1.50 on Betway, 1.53 on Bet365 and 1.48 on Betrally. Australia, despite having won the last two matches, find themselves as the underdogs at a higher price of 2.35 on Betrally and 2.50 on both Betway and Bet365.

India vs Australia Prediction

Australia recorded their highest successful chase in ODIs last time and the victory would have surely given their confidence a tremendous boost. The visitors have secured back-to-back wins in the series and so they will be taking plenty of momentum with them into this game. However, India will be playing at a venue which has been their fortress in the fifty-over format. They have played 18 completed matches here and have won 12 of those. They have even won six of their last seven completed ODIs here. Plus, they have won their previous six ODI series at home and have not faced three consecutive defeats in the format in the last two years. The Australian batsmen managed to work their way around Kuldeep and Chahal at Mohali but they are likely to be troubled by the spin-twins a lot more at the Kotla which is why we are backing the hosts to win the series decider.

Final Verdict

Back India to beat Australia in the fifth ODI at 1.50 with Betway, 1.53 with Bet365 and 1.48 with Betrally.
