The bowling will be led by the Mitchell Starc and James Faulkner. These both impressed everyone in both first two ODI. Also, there is strong possibility that Josh Hazelwood will return to the playing eleven in place of Nathan Lyon. 

Adam Zampa will be the lone spinner for Australia and if rumours to believe, then the think tank of Australia are thinking to utilise the off-spin of Travis Head. 

Well, Australia will definitely look to bounce back and be knowing him, the dashing left-hander batsman must be looking to led his team from the front.
