Australia v Indiia
Start time: 03.20
TV: live on Sky Sports
Australia are sitting pretty with a 2-0 lead and they could shuffle their pack again for the contest at the MCG. Mitchell Marsh, who missed out on the victory in Perth, could return.
John Hastings, who replaced him, may hold his spot, however and Kane Richardson could be the man to make way. Hastings bowled with economy in Perth and was trusted with the 50th over - conceding just four. That's key in the context of a 300 chase.
It means Australia could field three all-rounders with James Faulkner no slouch with bat or ball. Josh Hazlewood, the pacer, has been rested for the remainder of the summer.
India have twice posted more than 300 and twice they have lost. It would be easy to claim they were 20 or 30 short each time - they didn't quite accelerate as expected certainly in game one - but there can be no doubt that the bowlers are to blame.
On a huge MCG outfield they face the very real prospect of the ignominy of notching 300 in three consecutive games and losing. It has happened to only two teams previously in two straight games.
Unfortunately there is little they can do to change things, largely due to the injury to Mohammad Shami and their obsession with spin (they brought four twirlers). Bhuv Kumar or Rishi Dhawan could replace Umesh Yadav in the only probable change.
Here are the last ten first-innings scores at the MCG (most recent first): 183-302-332-307-342-267-267-269-274-305. As you can see it is a belter of a batting wicket. The one exception is the 183 scored by New Zealand in the World Cup final. The average is 285. India have hit more than 300 on their last two visits - against Bangladesh and South Africa. But they managed only 267 and 151 in their last two efforts against Australia.
Australia are 1.422/5 and India 3.259/4. Given that the odds have not changed since game one and nor has the ease with which the hosts have won, it could be argued that Australia are value.
However, as much as Australia have been impressive in the chase the overriding factor in this series is the poor quality bowling. India are shorn of their best player in Shami while the Aussies have picked a virtually third-string attack.
So far only India have really been exposed. But that's because they have batted first. Were they to chase the situation could be different. India's batting should be capable of getting after 300 or more with similar skill.
If India do concede 300 or more they will be bigger than 3.259/4, so there is a dilemma. So you could wait - Australia are a sound bet in-running if they have to chase such a total again. In Perth, despite a ponderous start they were hovering around the 1.910/11 and 2.01/1 mark.
There is no toss bias under lights with an even split over the last ten years (24 games). The forecast is good.
Top Australia runscorer
Aaron Finch has the best average of any Aussie at the 'G in the last five years with a mark of 55.8. He has two tons. Steve Smith is not far behind on 54.2. They are both likely to go off no better than 3.55/2. George Bailey will be around 4.03/1.
Top India runscorer
Rohit Sharma, with two tons already, has a fine record on this ground. He averages 74 in the last five years (four innings) and he has two centuries as well. He will be no better than 3.259/4.
Back India if they bat second
