Team news & latest updates.
Bowling will be under a lot of pressure after a poor performance in the last match. They couldn’t able to make a single wicket. Kohli will make some changes for sure from last match’s lineup. India’s last defeat for 10 wickets is before a long time ago. Which makes captain think twice before picking the final eleven for 2nd ODI. Risk Kohli took in batting 4th position backfired badly, S Iyer who was in good form in the 4th position will return back.
Players to look out: Due to Rishabh Pant’s injury, Shivam Dube or Kedar Jadhav may get chance to prove their worth. We also thinking Rohit Sharma & Dhawan will be key players to look out in this crucial match.
Talking about a confident team, there is Australia. They have performed well both bowling and batting department. Bowlers tamed most celebrated India’s top order and chased a decent score without falling a single wicket. Finch & Warner destroyed India’s bowlers and crushed fan’s dreams.
Players to look out: Pace attack looks solid with Starc & Cummins leading in the front. Batting lineup didn’t had a chance to test India conditions as Aussie captain Finch & Warner did a great partnership.
