India vs Australia 3rd ODI: Vijay Shankar makes debut as India make three changes

Allrounder Vijay Shankar will make his one-day international debut for India in the 3rd ODI against Australia at MCG. The allrounder, who replaced Hardik Pandya in the squad, was handed his maiden cap by coach Ravi Shastri in front of the team. He will replace Mohammed Siraj in the line-up, who proved to be quite expensive in Adelaide on his ODI debut for India.

Australia have made two changes to their playing XI for the series-deciding match against India on Friday, with Adam Zampa and Billy Stanlake coming into the side. Stanlake replaces paceman Jason Behrendorff, who has been ruled out with back soreness, while spinner Nathan Lyon has been dropped to make way for Zampa.

Australia XI: Aaron Finch, Alex Carey, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Peter Siddle, Adam Zampa, Billy Stanlake
