Aussies may go Head first in one-day opener

Maxwell had dropped a far simpler catch in nearly the exact same spot on the ground in Australia's warm-up match on Tuesday, but he held on when it mattered today. I think, if you look to bat in the position that you bat in one format, in all the formats, then it can get very hard for the team to find the right kind of balance including that player.

The Aussies made a good comeback after historic first Test defeat against Bangladesh.

Rain started falling shortly after India fought back to post 7-281 off their 50 overs after the Australian bowlers dominated early. The preparation of the players in the match India vs Australia is probably being marked. The way they stunned India in Pune earlier this year to take a 1-0 lead in the Test series (before going down 2-1) shows Australia are not going to buckle under pressure.

Virat Kohli is coming off an incredible tour in the Emerald Islands, top scoring in the ODI series with 330 runs and back-to-back centuries against hosts Sri Lanka. "If at all he can be more consistent with bowling, in which he is showing positive signs, he will be my MVP (most valuable player)".

Hardik Pandya is a finisher for the team India.

In recent times, there has been talk of the Indian think-tank preparing for the ICC World Cup in 2019. Both teams India & Australia are having 30-35 ODIs each and both tea will be showcased their skill in the today's match at Chennai.

Which player will step up for the Steelers against the Vikings?
Zimmer was asked about their shared history and who benefits the most entering Sunday's game against the Steelers at Heinz Field. Still, one of the losses was by two points to NFC East champion Dallas, and one in overtime against playoff-bound Detroit.

Last week, former Australia skipper Clarke backed the tourists to upset the 1983 and 2011 world champions, saying their time during the IPL will play a key role. "It paid dividends in the last series as well and that's something we will look to continue as it gives us good balance", said Kohli. So the pitch cans quickly absorbed the Chennai hit here.

Only soured friendships and damaged relations remained after the on-field taunts and verbal scuffles on Australia's previous tour to India.

Since January 2013, the average first-innings score in games between India and Australia is 321. So, the team management's decision to bring him up the order, moving K. L. Rahul to No. 4, would certainly be a thing to keep a tab on.

As for Australia, Hilton Cartwright, who opened in the warm-up match against Board President's XI, is likely to share the duty with David Warner.

Aaron Finch will miss out owing to a calf injury. Kohli has been in maverick form but in the first ODI against Australia, he fell prey to a wide ball from Nathan Coulter-Nile which was caught by Glenn Maxwell at the point. You can read this statement on face value and also interpret it as lack of faith in off-spin. Kuldeep Yadav during the first innings of the Dharmasala Test, played great and picked four wickets against the Australian team and this time too people will be expecting him to play great.
