India, Australia resume ODI rivalry

Former Australia captain Michael Clarke rated Virat Kohli as the better batsman in ODI cricket out of the two captains ahead of the first ODI between India and Australia on Sunday. He had scored a total of 391 runs in 10 matches against India, which includes a ton and two fifties.

0 Australia have never lost an ODI at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai (Chepauk). In South Africa's previous ODI series in India, captain AB de Villiers employed a 4-5 field for his tall seamers, who angled the ball into their ribs. In between, there was a darn good series of Test cricket as Australia proved the stiffest challenge to India's immaculate home season.

Bringing an end to Australia cricket team's domination in World Cups, India handed Ricky Ponting's team a crushing defeat in the quarterfinal of the ICC World Cup 2011.

Meanwhile, in the Indian team, left-arm spinner Axar Patel has been ruled out of the first three ODIs against Australia.The bowler sprained his left ankle during practice session, and Ravindra Jadeja has been named in his place for first three ODIs.

The top-order debate - Virat Kohli at No. 3, with not an inch of doubt.

A few months before he eventually breached the 200-run mark in an ODI innings, Sachin Tendulkar looked set to create that record in Hyderabad. You can't raise or decrease your intensity according to who you are playing against. However, Australia had an indifferent run with their early Champions Trophy exit and then they had a tough time levelling the Test series against Bangladesh.

An emphasis on squad rotation, player management and using the format to hand experience to young players has resulted in an nearly apathetic approach to the One Day International cricket, which is fast becoming more a proving ground for new talent than a format where winning is everything. And he is someone who needs to be backed.

He said he wanted to get as much game time under his belt as possible."It is up to each individual how he wants to do it", Rohit said. Because we believe that he has the ability. While Rahul is not only made to bat out of position, he will also be competing with Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav, who both made a half-century each in the ODIs in Sri Lanka.

Writsy preference - Since Kuldeep Yadav's brilliance against Australia in the decider of the Border-Gavaskar series at Dharamsala, Kohli and Shastri has grown a sort of fondness for wrist-spin action.

The chinaman has delivered an astounding performance in the Tour of West Indies and then again in the Sri Lanka series too.

For a well-oiled side like India, a series win against the Aussies, even though on home turf, will act as a stepping stop for the 2019 World Cup campaign.

"I feel confident and it was nice to get some time in the middle the other day to get a feel for the wicket and the conditions".

"Sometimes they are good but they don't get the opportunity".
