  • India’s tail didn’t last long. From 238/6, they’ve been skittled out for 250. Australia would be quite pleased with their bowling effort after Finch opted to bowl.
  • On a tricky, slow-ish track, India was reduced to 75/3, with the troika of Rohit, Dhawan and Rayudu playing ordinary shots. That’s when Virat Kohli was joined by Vijay Shankar and together they decided to counterattack, with the latter quite a few eye-pleasing strokes.
  • Just when the partnership looked threatening, Zampa upset the applecart. First, he induced a run-out and then took two wickets in as many balls. Kohli kept going despite the happenings at the other end and notched up his 40th ODI century.
  • However, once Jadeja fell, the Indians fell like a pack of cards. The score of 250 seems to be a par score on this track. Australia needs to be at their best to chase this down.
  • The way they play spin will most likely decide the outcome of this game. 2-0 or 1-1? Join us back in 35 minutes.

When:  India vs Australia, 2nd ODI, March 5, 2019, 13:30 IST

Where: Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur

What to expect:

  • The Jamtha Stadium’s boundaries are among the longest in India, a fact that will inspire the spinners to flight the ball generously. Although six of the eight first games played at this venue have seen first-innings totals in excess of 290.
  • The pitch has notoriously turned into a haven for spinners since the World T20 in 2016 and the India-South Africa Test before that.
  • The square was re-laid in 2017 but didn’t change its character completely with Axar Patel’s three-wicket haul keeping Australia down to 242 in the last ODI here.

Team News:

India:

  • The hosts will be desperate to add to Rishabh Pant’s three ODI appearances if they are considering putting him on that plane to England in May.
  • It’ll be thus interesting to see if they consider dropping Ambati Rayudu for a game. Alternatively, a left-field move could involve resting MS Dhoni to give Pant ago although such a move is unlikely to be made now given the former captain’s recent good run of form.

Expected Playing 11-

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (C), Ambati Rayudu/Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah.

Australia: 

  • Shaun Marsh has been Australia’s form player in the ODIs, But he was unavailable for the first game having just flown into the country after the birth of his child.
  • The southpaw also has a minor hamstring issue and jetlag that he’ll have to overcome to play this game. If fit, Marsh will slot in at three with the rest of the line-up dropping down by a spot and Ashton Turner missing out despite a promising debut in Hyderabad.

Expected Playing 11-

 Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh/ Ashton Turner, Marcus Stoinis, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Jason Behrendorff.
