Australia Tour of India 2020: IND vs AUS 2nd ODI Dream 11 Predictions

Here is the IND vs AUS 2nd ODI Dream 11 Predictions.

Match Details

The 2nd ODI match will take place at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. The match will begin at 1:30 PM Local.

Team News


India have started their campaign with a loss where bowlers failed to take a single wicket. Bowlers like Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav, who are known for their wicket-taking ability could not stop the Australian batting line up. Both the openers – Aaron Finch and David Warner stitched the 258-run opening partnership, the highest ODI partnership against India.

Apart from them, they need to face the batsmen like Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne. Earlier, India too had a 100+ run partnership between KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan for the second wicket. But the middle order suffered a sudden collapse and posted a below-par score. Moreover, questions raised on Virat Kohli‘s new batting position as well.

The unavailability of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant due to a mild concussion means Rahul will keep the wicket. In this situation, Shivam Dube can be a good option in the playing XI. Moreover, we can expect Yuzvendra Chahal coming in place of Shardul Thakur. However, the team management need to select their best XI against mighty Australia.

Australia will keep their winning combination intact. Meanwhile, captain Aaron Finch said in the post-match conference that they are expecting India to bounce back at Rajkot. Keeping their formidable form – both batsmen and bowlers – it can be said that the game is going to be a tough one.

Most Impactful Players

David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Starc

Probable Playing XI

David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (WK), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa

Pitch and Conditions

Previously India have suffered defeat at Rajkot which they want to change. The pitch at the venue helps the batsmen. However, the dew could pose trouble for the bowlers and hence, both the captains will love to chase after winning the toss.

There are no chances of rain during the game and the temperature is going to be around 24 degrees Celcius during the day. However, the temperature will drop down to eight degrees Celcius later as well.
