INDIA v AUSTRALIA 2ND ODI: TIPS & SELECTIONS
India took a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series in Hyderabad on Saturday and the sides now meet in Nagpur on Tuesday in the second game.
A clinical chase gave India a six-wicket win in the opener and the hosts will now bid to take a 2-0 lead.
We pick out some of the players you should have in your selections for the 2nd ODI.
Rohit Sharma ($14,900)
Rohit Sharma has not been at his best, but he has scores of 79 & 125 in the only two matches he has played at this venue – both of them against Australia. Will the venue bring his scoring form back? He is worth having on your side given his Nagpur record.
Adam Zampa ($15,500)
Adam Zampa (2/49) proved effective in the opening game as he continues to stake his claim to be Australia’s number one spinner at the Cricket World Cup. Zampa troubled the Indian batsmen in the first ODI with his skiddy leg-breaks and more importantly the googlies. Another good performance will cement his spot on the plane to England.
Glenn Maxwell ($15,700)
Glenn Maxwell was brilliant in the T20Is (169 runs) showing a new-found composure and control. And he continued that form in the first ODI, scoring 40. He will be a bit disappointed not going on to make a bigger score, but he is in good nick and set for more runs.
Kuldeep Yadav ($12,900)
India have the best combination of wrist spinners and Kuldeep Yadav returned to the side and took 2/46 to restrict Australia to 236/7. He is sure to be among the wickets once again and you simply can’t be without him in your selections.
