IND vs AUS 2nd ODI – The second match of the three-match ODI series between India and Australia will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday 29 November from 9:10 am(IST). The 1st ODI match between Aus and IND was played on this ground. To remain stay in the series, India will have to register a win in this match. However, it is not going to be easy for Virat Kohli & Co. to beat the current team of Australia in their home.
The Indian team will play on Sydney Cricket Ground against Australia on Sunday in a ‘do or die’ match. Australia won the first ODI of the series by 66 runs. In such a situation, Team India will try to win this match and match it in the series. Australia scored 374 runs in the first ODI on the centuries of captain Aaron Finch and Steve Smith. The Indian team could only score 308 runs for 8 wickets. In such a situation, Team India will take a lesson from the previous mistakes and enter the second ODI.
After suffering a crushing defeat by the hands of Australia in the first match of the three-match ODI series, now team India has a chance to take revenge to the Australian team.
The host team Australia, which has won the first ODI match, may be forced to make a change, as the team Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis suffered an injury during the first match.
India will face these challenges
- The biggest challenge for India is the absence of the sixth bowling option. Due to Hardik Pandya not bowling, the Indian team will also have to face this problem in the second ODI. Despite the defeat in the first ODI, Team India would not like to make any changes in the team in the second ODI. In such a situation, this time the team will have only five bowling options in the form of Jaspreet Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja.
- In the limited overs team India had missed Rohit Sharma a lot in the first ODI. Rohit has an amazing record against Australia and if he had been there, maybe the result of the first match could have been something else. Rohit is not part of the team in the entire limited overs series. In such a situation, the lack of a hitman to Kohli and company is a big problem.
- The biggest problem for India is that most of the batsmen of the current Australian team are in excellent form. In such a situation, they dominate the Indian bowlers right from the beginning. The team has eight players in the form of David Warner, Steve Smith, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carrie and Adam Zampa, who recently featured in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League. These players have been so close to Indian players by staying in different teams. In such a situation, they have come to know their strengths and weaknesses very well.
Is there any scope for change in Indian team?
There is chance for change in India’s bowling department, but captain Virat Kohli can stay with these bowlers for at least one more match. The current Indian team squad consists of spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal, while Jaspreet Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Navdeep Saini are the fast bowlers. At the same time T Natarajan, Kuldeep Yadav and Shardul Thakur are sitting on the bench. In such a situation, Virat Kohli has no option to make changes, while in batting he cannot exclude anyone.
