What the series against Australia means for India

"Right from Champions Trophy till the last tour in Sri Lanka Dhawan has had impactful performances for the team- Rohit

Pandya chipped in at this point as well, picking the all-important wicket of Australian skipper Steve Smith and that of Travis Head. There isn't much that separates the two sides on paper.

Former Team India's Captain MS Dhoni, well known for his flawless sixes in the critical situations has got an overwhelming welcome at Chennai's MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Australia made a stunning start in the Chennai ODI versus India.

Hardik Pandya is a finisher for the team India.

It has, however, been the 50-over format that has seen some of Australia's worst cricket in recent times, especially away from home where they have lost their last eight fully completed matches, last managing a win against Ireland in September of 2016, hardly a banner result. And Kohli said India once again today proved how good their lower-middle was. So the pitch cans quickly absorbed the Chennai hit here. Jadeja along with offspinner R Ashwin was given an extended rest following the conclusion of the Test series against Sri Lanka last month. One ball later, Manish Pandey, preferred over KL Rahul as No. 4, nicked a full ball to the 'keeper and the hosts went crashing to 11 for 3.

In a massive number of players who come out to practice and the good enough players generally picked to play, the India is having talented Cricketers' like, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami they are on the bench. So this left-arm spinner can replace by Ravindra Jadeja late on the Sunday match. The skipper said it was an advantage to have two wrist spinners (Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal) in the side and that their ability to pick up wickets gave him a lot of confidence.

Australia ODI squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa. Glenn Maxwell on his day can make a joke of the bowling attack and Australia would hope that he clicks in the series.

"Spin has always played a pretty big part in ODIs particularly in these conditions".

Australia, on the other hand, have returned to India for the first time since their fiery and controversial Border-Gavaskar series earlier this year, which India won 2-1 and which ended with Kohli declaring some of his friendships with the Australian players had been irreparably damaged.

This was the Baroda all-rounder's career-best ODI score, surpassing the 76, which he belted against Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy final in England, earlier this year.
