India vs Australia ODI Fantasy Tips: Second ODI Preview

India vs Australia Second ODI

A tight match in Hyderabad needed MS Dhoni’s calm and Kedhar Jadhav’s aggression for India to defeat Australia. Both teams now move to Nagpur for the second ODI. The focus will still be on getting their World Cup plans right, but Australia will look for a win to get back in the series.

An India vs Australia ODI series is usually one for the record books, which can still be the case here. Aaron Finch’s poor form puts Australia in a big mess, while Virat Kohli’s side looks much more settled.

India Preview

With just four ODIs remaining before they finalise their World Cup squad, India might look to rotate a little. KL Rahul may get a chance later in the series, but not right away. Rishabh Pant is waiting in the wings to show that he can be their second ‘keeper.

With Indian Premier League on the horizon, Kohli will look to give his ODI stars enough practice. Vijay Shankar’s all-round skills will be tested once again, while Ravindra Jadeja is doing good work with his left-arm spin.

India Predicted XI: 1 Shikhar Dhawan 2 Rohit Sharma 3 Virat Kohli 4 Ambati Rayudu 5 MS Dhoni (WK) 6 Kedar Jadhav 7 Vijay Shankar 8 Ravindra Jadeja 9 Yuzvendra Chahal 10 Mohammed Shami 11 Jasprit Bumrah

Australia Preview

The return of Shaun Marsh gives Australia a new dimension, as he has been Australia’s best ODI batsman over the last year. Aaron Finch will be eager to get some runs under his belt and justify his spot.

Bowling remains their strong suit, as the Aussies look well settled. Adam Zampa looked a real deal in the first match and will love the conditions here. With Nathan Coulter-Nile proving strong with both the ball and bat, Australia have one less thing to worry about.
