After getting defeated in the fourth one day match of the five match series, Indian team will be hoping for a great comeback in the fifth and the final match of the one day series.
It was a strong batting display by the Australian team after getting defeated in the first three one day matches they bounced back stopping the eight match winning streak of the Indian team and are now looking forward to get some momentum going ahead of the T20 internationals.
It won’t be a surprise if Kohli gives his reserves bowlers another game on Sunday and more rest to Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav.
“We have won the series and you have to try out guys at some stage. You need to test your bench strength as well and you need to give those guys game time,” said Kohli post the defeat in Bengaluru.
On the batting front, KL Rahul may get a game as he remains the only batsman in the squad to not have played in the series so far.
