Cricket Match Preview:

India and Australia will continue their pursuit of best possible eleven as they take on each other in the 2nd ODI cricket game. These 5 matches will be the last opportunity for India to fine-tune their squad before the upcoming cricket World Cup. Both cricket teams will be looking to make the most of these ODIs.

India are looking to give as many opportunities as possible to whom they feel will be part of their World Cup squad. This brings in the opportunity for players like KL Rahul, who seemed in splendid form in the T20 cricket series. Rishabh Pant will also be given opportunities although his limited overs form has left a lot to be desired.

For Australia, the batting performance of Glenn Maxwell would have been the biggest positive. His dominance mixed with patience and the ability to finish games of cricket would have relaxed their batting order. They can now look to score big runs on the pitches that are expected to be beautiful to bat on.

Despite their first loss in 10 years in any cricket format against Australia, India would not be too perturbed. They had rested a few of their regular bowlers like Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami in the T20 cricket series. However, no team like to lose any cricket game hence, despite the experimentation, India would like to continue the habit of winning cricket games.

Australia have more or less the same squad that played in the T20 cricket series. They will definitely include the likes of Shaun Marsh and Usman Khawaja in the playing eleven hence, one of the pacers will have to make way for them. Their bowlers contained India on some of the flattest decks and that would have given them good confidence. Adam Zampa especially had an excellent T20 cricket series against arguably the best players of spin bowling.

Cricket Match Information:

India will now take on Australia in the second game of 5-match ODI cricket series. India were defeated by Australia in 2-match T20 cricket series by 2-0. It was a shock defeat for the Indian cricket team against Australia and it was a first loss for India on their home soil against Australia since 2008.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

For India, the experimentation is likely to continue hence, our prediction is of the rotation of all-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Vijay Shankar. Hardik Pandya is out of this cricket series due to injury although he is definitely going to be the part of the World Cup squad.  

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Virat Kohli
  • Ambati Rayudu
  • MS Dhoni
  • Vijay Shankar
  • Kedar Jadhav
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Mohammad Shami
  • Jasprit Bumrah
  • Yuzvendra Chahal


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Australia will now be confident that they have won the T20 cricket series. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh into the playing eleven.

Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:

  • Aaron Finch
  • Alex Carrey
  • Shaun Marsh
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Peter Handscomb
  • Adam Zampa
  • JP Behrendroff
  • Jhye Richardson
  • Usman Khawaja
  • Pat Cummins

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Ambati Rayudu looked good in the ODI cricket series against New Zealand in New Zealand. He has had success in the past on India soil in 50 over format as well. Our prediction is of a good knock from him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international cricket ODI cricket was played here between India and Australia back in 2017. India won that cricket game by chasing 242 runs set by Australia. That Australian cricket team had both David Warner and Steve Smith in their playing eleven. Despite that, India won quite easily courtesy of Rohit Sharma’s century. Our prediction is of a score of around 275 this time around. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

India will begin this game of cricket as favourites despite the loss in the T20 cricket series. However, after losing T20 cricket series, they would not take Australia lightly. Our prediction is of an Indian victory in the 2nd ODI cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Shikhar Dhawan (IND) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Kuldeep Yadav (IND) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

MS Dhoni (IND)
