Cartwright to debut, India to bat in ODI

17 Septembre, 2017, 22:45 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was at his best elements on Sunday, helping India thrash Australia in the first of the five ODIs in Chennai.

Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal supplemented an attack led by fast bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. The selectors had rested Jadeja for the first three ODIs, but after the injury to Akshar Patel, he was recalled to the team. With 9 wickets down Australia needed 34 runs from the last over which was never going to happen.

While Australia could have had their next wicket in the form of Rohit, a rare, silly drop from Steven Smith at second slip ensured the opener lived long to fight another day. "It is important to keep picking wickets and have breakthroughs throughout. 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. "So if the wickets are the same you need someone to go on and make a really big score". Yet, Australia, who are coming off a resounding Test-series-levelling rout of Bangladesh in Chittagong, are never far away from finding their best, irrespective of the format.

This series was expected to be a face-off between the top three batsmen on either side. There isn't much that separates the two sides on paper.

"We saw the last time we came here in 2013 it was a run-fest where 350 was around par". He scored at a strike rate of over 200 in his innings of 39 runs from 18 balls.

With a calf problem ruling Aaron Finch out of the first few ODIs, Travis Head might be forced to open the batting, a position he is accustomed to, having opened for South Australia.

A source close to the India think tank said Hardik and Ravindra Jadeja could be the all-rounders in contention for slots in the series against Australia. Australia's strength in the ODI game can give some opportunity to India to showcase their talents. So, we like to prepare the same way and we like to play with the same kind of intensity regardless of who we are playing against.

The first ODI is scheduled to be held on Sunday in Chennai.

"I am not too concerned about my differences with Kohli". When it comes to putting totals on the board, India can put good totals when batting first.

Kohli faltered in the Test series 46 runs in five innings, his poorest return from a series on home soil and has a point to prove against Australia. "He possesses all three skills equally and we are lucky to have him", Kohli added.
