After a eye-opening loss in 1st ODI at Sydney, the team is a bit shaken with Hardik & KL Rahul banned and replaced by Vijay Shankar for Australia ODI’s but he is unlikely to play in the 2nd ODI at Adelaide. Meanwhile Aussies are overwhelmed by the win and are raring to go for the series sealing win in 2nd ODI. But they have a concern over poor fielding of Khawaja & Peter Siddle’s of colour bowling. While India will be willing to make a few changes in their approach and batting order too. Dinesh Karthik is expected to be axed form the XI. The only positive which emerged from 1st ODI is Mahi bhai (Ms.Dhoni) is back in form and those who think that India lost the last match because of him, they need to first see the mistakes by captain & coach made during the game, which were readily: First, playing Dinesh Karthik whose far too aggressive approach is bad for the team & lack of runs is also a problem; Second, is the decision to open the bowling with Khaleel Ahmed on a pitch where no swing was expected; Third, poor death bowling by Bhuvneshwar and the decision to not utilise Khaleel completely.
