India to clash with Australia in 3rd ODI at Indore tomorrow

They didn't get their team off to a flying start either.

Australia, who trail the five-match series 0-2, have made a couple of changes, while India have gone in with an unchanged eleven. The spell of confusion they are under was omnipresent in both the games.

Rohit is the only batsmen in the history of the game to score two double hundreds in One Day International (ODI) cricket.

A government with the Free Democrats aboard might take a tougher stance on efforts to reform the eurozone and bail out strugglers. Merkel was, as usual, controlled and directed; Schulz's response was, mostly, to defer. "There's enormous uncertainty.

Steve Smith-led Australia team have won the toss and elected to bat first against team India.

Patel bowled a long spell during India's nets on Saturday. He crawled to 26 from 43 balls as the Indian seamers maintained a testing line and length.
