India, Australia set to resume high-scoring rivalry

Rohit Sharma at a promotional event in Chennai on Thursday

The first ODI between India and Australia will be played at MA Chidambaram stadium, Chennai.

Yeah, I think Shikhar has obviously been playing well for India for the a year ago or so at the top of the order.

David Warner has become a mainstay with Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both Australia and New Zealand also toured India in 2016-17 season, both of them losing the series.

The hosts are on top form after recently beating Sri Lanka 9-0 in Tests, one day games and Twenty20, but second-ranked Australia poses a different challenge.

Earlier, an Australian Journalist has insulted Indian Skipper Virat Kohli on social media.

India vice-captain Rohit Sharma believes the policy of rotating personnel has been introduced to ensure that players remain "more than 100% fit" during the course of a cramped calendar.

The game, played in Chennai, was marred by a controversy that had a huge influence on the outcome. Obviously it is tough for them.

And now with the ODI series lined up, both have the opportunity to overhaul table-toppers South Africa (119) only if either can finish the five-match series with a score of 4-1 or better. Steve Smith was caught looking at the Australian dressing room moments before appealing for a DRS. India's experimentation with wrist spinners - Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav - has already resulted in "rest" for R. Ashwin.

Mouth-watering encounters can be expected from the two cricket giants.

"I will be happy if I can repeat the performances from last time".

For India, too, the series is more about testing the waters for the bigger stage that is the 2019 World Cup.

With the Sri Lanka series, Team India took one step towards their plan of rotation and experimentation to create a batting-order line up so versatile that batsman can produce as in when required from any position.

"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". In the battle between the two captains, who are both world-class batsmen, Clarke said that Kohli has the edge.

The fact that Kerala chinaman bowler K.K. Jiyas flew in to help the Aussies practice on Friday is a clear indication of how seriously the tourists are taking spin. Australia have won 5 bi-lateral series against India so far. They have got Kuldeep Yadav in their squad and he is likely to play.

"I think, if you look to bat in the position that you bat in one format, in all the formats, then it can get very hard for the team to find the right kind of balance including that player. I'd say it'll play a reasonable part throughout this series". He is someone who you have to watch a little bit closely.
