India Vs Australia: Three Possible Players Who Could Replace David Warner In 3rd ODI

In the second ODI of the India Tour of Australia, the hosts beat the visitors by 51 runs and sealed the series with a comprehensive win in the second game of the three-match ODI bilateral series. The Aussies posted a target of 390 for the Men in Blue, in reply India could only score 338 at the loss of nine wickets. India is yet to play 3 T20Is and 4 Test matches against the Aussies. The biggest drawback from the second ODI for the hosts was David Warner’s injury. The southpaw has been in a good form and managed to score two consecutive half-centuries.

The Aussies have to find a suitable replacement for the in-form opener who was limping out of the ground due to a groin injury during the second ODI. Australia’s batting line-up seems to be in good touch, there are several players that would replace Warner in the opening slot. Here are three players who could be a possible alternative for David Warner for the third ODI:

  1. Alex Carey
    Alex Carey has been playing the role of a finisher for Australia at number 7. He scored a quick 17 in the first ODI and didn’t get an opportunity to bat in the second ODI. Carey has been doing a good job as an opener for Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash. Carey is also a left-hander which makes him a strong contender for David Warner’s slot in his absence.

  1. Marcus Stoinis
    Marcus Stoinis opened for Delhi Capitals in IPL along with Shikhar Dhawan and managed to accelerate in the powerplay. The all-rounder could play a similar kind of role at the top order for his national team also. Stoinis had good Big Bash 2019-20 season in which he scored 705 runs in 17 matches, the all-rounder could replicate the same success for Australia also.

  1. Marnus Labuschagne
    Marnus Labuschagne made a name for himself from being just a substitute for Steve Smith to being a reliable batsman for Australia at number four. The right-handed batsman has scored 466 runs at an average of 42.36 in the 12 ODIs he played so far in his limited-overs career. With a 70 in his previous game, Labuschagne is in a good form and is the most reliable option for replacing David Warner.
