Suryakumar Yadav is in for a chat. He says that he had practiced not playing a single sweep shot for about 40-50 balls. Adds that he has played like that when he was playing first class cricket and implemted the same in last match. Mentions that he got a lot of learning from the management and coaching staff and they asked him to take the innings deep. Shares that he was relieved after scoring runs in the last match and says that the plan will remain same.
India's captain KL Rahul says that they would have bowled first as well considering the size of the ground. Mentions that it is a good wicket and feels it will be a good challenge to put runs on the board. Informs that they have only one change from the last game. Jasprit Bumrah is rested and Prasidh Krishna comes in. Reckons that it is good for all batters to spend some time in the middle.
The stand-in skipper of Australia, Steven Smith says that they will bowl first. Adds that the weather is warm and the wicket looks good. Tells that the dew coming later is also a reason that they fancy chasing here. Mentions that they are obviously working towards the World Cup and it is great opportunity to try a few guys and rotate the squad. Informs that Pat Cummins is out but Spencer Johnson, Josh Hazlewood and Alex Carey are in.

Informs that the square boundaries are in the early 60s and those behind square are in the 55 metre zone. Adds that Suryakumar Yadav will love this ground. Brad Haddin joins him and says that India have won four of the six games batting first. Shares that this looks like a consistent surface but it is a little dry and hard than the previous game. Feels that it will be a high scoring game and it will be tough work for the bowlers. Expects the captain winning the toss to bat first and defend later.
JUST IN: Jasprit Bumrah has been given a break by the Indian team management to visit his family. Mukesh Kumar has been announced as his replacement for the 2nd ODI, with Bumrah returning for the third and final ODI in Rajkot.
India, on the other hand, will be happy with the start of the series. The youngsters, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill, were amazing at the start of the innings. Mohammad Shami was the star of the match with his fi-fer and that will provide a good boost for him ahead of the World Cup. The KL Rahul-led side will look for another victory in this match and seal the series. The World Cup is just around the corner, and a win against Australia in home conditions could provide some much-needed momentum for the Indians. Stay with us as these two giants clash against each other soon. Sit tight as we get you the toss and team news in a while.
Australia were looking forward to this series, as it is a good chance for them to win on Indian soil just ahead of the World Cup coming up. They faced a loss in the first ODI, but it was a good performance from them, and they put up a good total on the board. David Warner and Steven Smith put up a good partnership early on in the innings. Their middle order also batted well, but none of the batters managed to take the innings deep and could only put up small partnerships. The bowlers could not strike early on but dominated the middle phases, which was not enough in the end. They will now want to win this one and level the series.
Hello and a very warm welcome, folks. We arrive at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore for the 2nd ODI between India and Australia. The weather looks great, and we hope to see an exciting game of cricket being played.
... MATCH DAY ...
