India vs Australia 1st ODI 2017: IND to Opt Bat First

Only Glenn Maxwell could make a mark in the Australian batting lineup.

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.

"It is important to keep picking wickets and have breakthroughs throughout". It is a matter of giving players confidence.

Australia called in local left-arm wrist spinner K.K. Jiyas, who played for Delhi in the Indian Premier League, to help prepare for Kuldeep's guile during net practice in Chennai. "The captain is comfortable to get them into the fray as they can get crucial breakthroughs we look forward to in the middle part of the game", vice-captain Rohit said on Friday. He's someone who you have to watch really closely.

"We've talked about attitude and I think with fielding the big thing is attitude".

The star batsman said top-order runs would be key in what he expected would be a high-scoring affair. "We saw that the last time we came here in 2013 it was a run-fest where 350 was around par". You need depth in batting and bowling.

In a near flawless first hour for Australia, Steve Smith could have made it better had he held on to a catch second slip.

Australia will be desperate to get off to a winning start in the five-match series, which is followed by three T20 internationals against India.

"We had a chat about it the other day".

Head, 23, has played 25 ODI games, with an outstanding average of 40.7 with the bat.

In this series namely, India vs Australia both countries are appeared to be an equal opponent might be a good place. Hopefully they can back up in couple of days time.

Coulter-Nile collected 3-12 off his first five overs in his first match for Australia since playing against the West Indies in Bridgetown in June previous year.

"I am not too concerned about my differences with Kohli".

Expectation: The pitch is smooth with some attractive surroundings, but Smith said that the pitch is too soft and tender. "Hopefully we can keep him quiet as much as possible, and if we do that, it can go a long way in having some success on this tour". Pandya went hammer and tongs at Adam Zampa, picking up 24 runs in the 36 over, pushing Dhoni to go on the defensive.

The Australian players Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood are ruled out in this series as they are injured and Aaron Finch will not be the opener along with Warner and he is replaced by Peter Handscomb but Travis Head is expected to be the novice with Warner.
