India Vs Australia 2nd ODI Predicted Playing 11: Tilak Varma Or Washington Sundar To Replace Ishan Kishan? Check Here?
In the second ODI, which will be played at Indore's Holkar stadium on September 24, Team India will play Australia with the goal of winning the series. Indian team, led by KL Rahul, beat the guests by 5 wickets.
It was a great performance from the Indian team in every way. The game was good for India in many ways. Suryakumar Yadav finally got back to playing his best, and Mohammed Shami took five wickets.
Shami was a big reason for the win because he got rid of the bad starter Mitchell Marsh with a perfect ball in the first over.
Shami didn't play in many Asia Cup games because Mohammed Siraj was the favourite. The bowler from Uttar Pradesh must have been inspired by that to come out and do his best in the first ODI.
As long as Shami bowls as well as he did in the first ODI, it will be hard for the Indian management to decide which pace bowlers to bring to the World Cup.
At the end of the game, R Ashwin also came back with good scores. People think that Ashwin and Washington Sundar could substitute Axar Patel if the left-arm spinner doesn't get fit in time or if the management wants to add a right-arm off-spinner to the team. No one will be able to make that call until September 28, when the BCCI picks the final 15.
When it comes to the second ODI, Ashwin may keep his spot. Sundar or Tilak Varma could come in for Ishan Kishan in the starting 11. They both hit with their left hand and can bowl a little. If you look at what India wants for the World Cup, Sundar might come in for Kishan in the XI.
Rahul Dravid, the coach, might want to watch the young off-spinner play in the next two ODIs to see how he does. Someone could also see Siraj come in for Jasprit Bumrah, who should be put in a bubble to keep him from getting hurt.
India Probable XI: Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (c, wk), Tilak Varma/Washington Sundar, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami/Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj
Australia Probable XI: David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Sean Abbott, Pat Cummins (c), Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa
