Battle-hardened Australia look to end India's home-run

If they are rested, vice-captain Rohit Sharma spoke up for all the players, wondering what's this rest-and-rotate- policy is all about, he himself was rested after the Champions Trophy and not picked for the West Indies tour. With 336 runs from five innings, including a hundred and three half-centuries, Rahane was the top scorer on either side. Australia won the previous bilateral series (4-1). He is obviously a very good player and has a phenomenal ODI record. Looking at No. 4, it is Manish Pandey or KL Rahul.

Asked if there was a different outlook because Australia was a stronger opposition, he told reporters ahead of the first ODI against Australia at M A Chidambaram Stadium here tomorrow, "No, I dont think that we need to look at any series differently". Now we're backing Jinks at the top of the order. As I mentioned in Sri Lanka as well, your preparation should matter more than who you are playing against. Both have 117 points, but the team from Down Under stands at position two on the list head of the Men in Blue by a decimal mark. But, it isn't as straightforward: in a full squad featuring Dhawan and Rohit, there won't be room for Rahane and Rahul.

"He's also opened a lot in ODIs as well".

With India coming home from a resounding success in Sri Lanka, in which they won all three Test matches, all five ODI matches, and the lone Twenty20 match, there is an expectation that good form will be built on and that a vulnerable Australian side could provide the ideal cannon fodder for Kohli's men. Rahul, on the other hand, won't have that allowance, as he is set to continue batting in the middle order, despite having the skillsets to open.

Geoff Marsh of Australia cricket team in action during the World Cup Group A match against Indian cricket team at MA Chidambaram Stadium on October 9, 1987. "So he knows the plans are clear", the skipper said.

After a long Sri Lanka tour, India's domestic season is about to begin. "I think we need to identify two of those guys for your side to have more strength in both the departments", Kohli said.

"Sometimes they are good but they don't get the opportunity". Australia have struggled against most teams in the past. This time for a limited-over series with both team gearing up for the 2019 Cricket World Cup. "If we follow that, I am sure we would be fine". Because we believe that he has the ability. Which is why we have the rotation policy going on, keeping in mind the tight schedule. "We've got a spinning allrounder, we've got allrounders who take the pace off the ball so we've got a few different options".

Kohli, unlike Dhoni, has clearly stated that he isn't averse to experimentation. Along with the left-arm fast bowler, who is recuperating from a minor injury, his colleagues Josh Hazlewood and James Pattinson are also nursing sore muscles back home leaving Pat Cummins to shoulder the extra burden in India.
