Cricket is a game of uncertainties, and it proved in this series.

Australia team always has an upper hand when it comes to tight games. They have a 'never say die' kind of attitude as we saw in the 4th ODI, despite their skipper Finch getting out for a duck, they held their nerves and chased an almost impossible target of 359 runs.

India likely to be unchanged for the series decider

India made as many as four changes to their side in Mohali in the previous game but sadly none of the changes did work in Captain Kohli's favour. Going into the much important fifth ODI, India may not make any further changes as it may disrupt the balance of the side. According to the Cricbuzz report, India's bowling coach Bharat Arun has said that Mohammad Shami is completely fit. With Bhuvaneswar back in the side, Shami may get rested for even this match.

Marcus Stoinis ruled out of the fifth ODI

Marcus Stoinis missed the previous game due to a thumb injury.

According to the Cricbuzz report, he will not take part in the final ODI as well due to the same injury. Patrick Cummins has had a long summer and a rest for him in around the corner. Whether captain Aaron Finch will give him a rest before an all-important game or not. Nathan Lyon could come back into the picture with Jason Behrendorff having an odd day in Mohali.

The Delhi pitch has a habit of slowing down once the ball gets a bit older.

This could play a crucial role in deciding how the game finally pans out and also what kind of sides does both teams select. The temperatures will be in the mid-20s which is relatively good for a game of cricket. There are no chances of rain and so we could have a 100-overs game on our hands.
