Rajkot Weather Update For India vs Australia 3rd ODI: Will Rain Play Spoilsport?
Contrary to earlier forecasts of possible rain, the day of the match, September 27, is now predicted to be mostly cloudy, with no rain expected.
When India plays Australia in the third and final One-Day International at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Wednesday, they hope to achieve a record 3-0 rout.
In the first two games, KL Rahul led the Men in Blue and did a fantastic job of building a 2-0 lead over the visitors in the absence of Rohit Sharma and other senior players.
After sitting out the first two games, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are expected to rejoin the team. Kuldeep Yadav and the outstanding all-round player were also absent.
In contrast, Australia will want to recover in the third One-Day International, which is set for September 27. The game is scheduled to take place on Wednesday at 1:30 PM IST at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.

Report on Pitch
The last One-Day International (ODI) of the three-match series will also include batting paradises, like the first two matches of the series witnessed. Given that the pitch at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium is known for helping batsmen, a high-scoring game is anticipated. Here, the first-inning score is 312 runs on average.
