We are all set to get underway!!! Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are making their way out to the middle followed by the Australian players. Pat Cummins will start the proceedings for the visitors.
India (Playing XI) - Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul (WK), Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey (In place of Rishabh Pant), Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini (In place of Shardul Thakur), Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah.
Australia (Unchanged playing XI) - David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (WK), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa.
Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, says that they also would've bowled first. Tells that hopefully there won't be a lot of dew but feels that it might come after 8.30-9.00 PM. Says that they will try to put a decent total and put the opposition under pressure. Adds that they will look to forget the last game and tells that one can expect one team to get beaten against sides like Australia. Believes that they have beaten the Aussies earlier and they will look to bounce back in the game. On the playing XI, Kohli says that Pant is out due to a concussion and Manish Pandey replaces him while Navdeep Saini comes in to replace Shardul Thakur.
Aaron Finch, the Aussie skipper, says that it is a beautiful wicket and it will remain the same throughout the game. Tells that they chased in the last game and they will not change the template. Says that the spinners bowled really well as they got their lengths right. Reveals that they are going with the same XI.
TOSS - Virat Kohli flips the coin and it lands in the favour of Aaron Finch. AUSTRALIA WILL BOWL FIRST.
India. Defeated comprehensively? That too at home? Yes, that's what happened in the first ODI as Australia beat the hosts by 10 wickets. India though are too strong a team to not bounce back and the visitors would be surely expecting that. Lot of things to look forward to for India. Where will Kohli bat? Who will replace Rishabh Pant? Srikar Bharat has been named as the back-up wicket-keeper but is unlikely to slot in the playing XI. Australia, on the other hand, are unlikely to make any changes to their playing XI. What will happen? Will the Men in Blue make a comeback or will the visitors take an unassailable lead in the series?
