New Delhi: After two crushing defeats, MS Dhoni and his boys have it all to do against the Aussies at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.

With series on the line, Team India is bound to be under tremendous pressure in the Sunday clash.

Despite scoring over 300 runs in the first two ODIs, the visitors' bowling attack failed to contain the Australia batsmen.

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been in sparkling form for India and the skipper will be looking to them once again to put up runs on the board.

Failure to score big in the final five overs has cost India dearly in the series.

Crucially, the fielders have let down the bowlers by dropping catches and missing run out chances.

The form of Shikhar Dhawan at the top and that of Dhoni during the slog overs is a matter of grave concern for the team.

The Aussie batsmen appear to be in superb form, with the likes of Steve Smith and George Bailey scoring runs at will.

As India head into the do-or-die battle at the MCG, here are all the important match details fans need to keep an eye on.
