India vs Australia 2nd ODI, Australia eye solid start vs Kohli’s India

Toss Update: Aaron Finch has won the toss and elected to bat.

Aaron Finch: We are going to bat. Stoinis is out today, a little bit of niggle in his side. We don’t want to push him too hard. Moises Henriques replaces him. The wicket was pretty good to be fair, got better with a bit of dew. Today, the wicket can get drier and slower as the game goes on.

Virat Kohli: We have played enough 50 over cricket to pull up professionally. After the 30-over mark, the bodies started to stiffen up a little bit as we have not played a long game for a while. The guys have understood what we need to do right today. The second half was very encouraging even though we lost four wickets. The big partnership [between Dhawan and Pandya] kept us in the game. We can take a lot of positives from that. It’s about covering up in the early part of the innings where we are not far behind because you don’t wan’t your bowlers to not have time, especially at the death. We are playing the same XI.

Australia (Playing XI): Aaron Finch(c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Moises Henriques, Alex Carey(w), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

India (Playing XI): Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
