India vs Australia 4th ODI Live Streaming on Star Sports in India

India vs Australia 4th ODI 

The series moves to Dhoni's home ground Ranchi where the stage is set for yet another big innings from the Indian skipper. Although his innings of 139 went in vain at Mohali, he will always be rememberd for the fighting spirit. He became the first Indian to score a century at Mohali in ODIs. The series is now headed by Australia as they are 2-1 ahead of India. India vs Australia live streaming is available on Star Sports official website and live TV telecast can be enjoyed on Star Cricket and Star Sports TV channels.

Ranchi could prove to be another high scoring venue as we saw some good scores out there in the recent CLt20 competition. The only ODI played here was on 19th January 2013 where India registered a comprehensive win against England. India bowled first and bundled out England for 155 runs. Chasing India lost three wickets and scored the target in just 28.1 overs.

Coming back to the current series, bowling department again stays a worry for both the teams, rather bigger issue for the Indian team. Way the bowlers have leaked runs in all the three matches was a disaster. Indian bowlers conceded 300 plus runs in all the three matches. Thanks to some heroic batting performances by Dhawan, Rohit and Kohli; India managed a big win in second ODI by chasing 360!

Let us review the third ODI which was played at Mohali. Probably to enjoy the early help to the fast bowlers, Australia elected to bowl first. Their decision was correct as they managed to send the openers back to the pavilion soon followed by another quick wicket of Raina. A good partnership between Kohli and skipper Dhoni laid the foundation of a good score. It seemed India will reach 250 which was a below par score at Mohali. But Dhoni soon changed gears and smashed lot of runs in death overs especially against Watson and Faulkner. He lead India to a good score of 303.

Australia had a relatively slow start and it stayed slow till the mid of their innings. Voges stayed unbeaten till the end with his solid innings. The best innings came from James Faulkner where he score more than 60 runs in just 29 balls. The turning point came when Ishant Sharma conceded 30 runs in an over and curtains were almost closed for India. James Faulkner clinched the man of the match award for his quick fire innings that took Australia home.

Speculations amongst the cricket fans were high that Ishant Sharma maybe dropped for rest of the series but the good part for him is that he is selected for rest of the ODI series. Infact all the other players are retained after the third ODI. Still four matches to go, anything can happen! Australia may go ahead with a comprehensive series victory or probably India can bounce back to win three out of four matches to win the series.

Overall a complete excitement is still in store for us as the two cricketing giants would lock horns at Ranchi. Stay tuned with India vs Australia live streaming on Star Sports website in India.
