Australia's chase in first ODI delayed by rain

17 Сентября 2017

The first ODI match will be played in Chennai on September 17, at the MA Chidambaram stadium from 1.30 pm onwards. This series marks the return of Ravindra Jadeja who replaces injured Axar Patel for the first three ODIs.

Hardik Pandya (L) raises his bat as MS Dhoni gestures during the first one day worldwide (ODI) cricket match in the India-Australia series at the M A Chidhambaram stadium in Chennai.

While Australia also play three Twenty20 Internationals in India before moving on to the Ashes series against England, Smith said the team had the 2019 World Cup firmly in mind. It was then some vintage MS Dhoni that the Chepauk crowd got to see as he went after the bowling towards the end and got India to a formidable total.

Australian captain Steve Smith who has the huge task of winning the match, let alone winning the series was least bothered by the absence of Dhawan.

A successful capture from one of the vantage points.

Marcus Stoinis's introduction to the attack worked nearly immediately as his nippy short ball got the better of Rohit, with the miscued pull landing safely in the hands of the fielder in the deep.

Warner (25) was the fourth man to go, cutting Kuldeep Yadav into Dhoni's gloves, and despite Maxwell's flurry of boundaries and Faulkner's cameo, the tourists never really got close - Yuzvendra Chahal scooping 3-30.

With a calf problem ruling Aaron Finch out of the first few ODIs, Travis Head might be forced to open the batting, a position he is accustomed to, having opened for South Australia.

Glenn Maxwell (39) then threw his bat around as he hit three fours and four sixes during his 18-ball stay.

The 23-year-old Mumbai Indians star hit his highest ODI score of 83 in just 66 balls and swung the momentum back in India's favour after the hosts were reeling at 11 for 3 inside the first six overs of the innings. "The captain is comfortable to get them into the fray as they can get crucial breakthroughs we look forward to in the middle part of the game", vice-captain Rohit said on Friday. The Australians couldn't generally recoup from that and the downpours added to their situation, as they needed to sit tight for their swing to bat.

However, ex-Indian all-rounder Singh, who played 136 ODIs, insists that will have no bearing and believes Virat Kohli's side will prove to be too strong for the world champions. Both teams would like to start the series with the victory, but both teams are aware that it will not be easy. This will be also slow down the measures, and finally, the team Australia t last will only have 2 fast bowlers - Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile - in the line-up. It is a matter of giving players confidence.

"I've had a chance at most spots since I've come into the side".
