In Cricket, India will take on Australia in third and final One-Day International at  Canberra tomorrow. The match will begin at 9:10 in the morning.

The hosts have already clinched the ODI series taking a 2-0 lead of the three-match series against India. The visitors have to find out sixth bowling option as Hardik Pandya's below per performance allowed the opponent to amass huge score against the visitors in last two one dayers. In addition, dismal performance of  the ace pacer bowler Jasprit Bumrah adds the woe to the selectors. 

Australia will play without their frontline batter David Warner and bowler Pat Cumins probably as they were injured in the last match. So, this is the last chance of Team India to win the third One dayer to avoid total whitewash. 

Live commentary of the match will be broadcast on FM Rainbow, Rajdhani, PB You Tube and other channels of All India Radio Delhi. Commentary can be heard alternately in Hindi and English from 8:30 AM till the end of the match.
