India vs Australia, 4th ODI – Toss Report and Playing XI


Australia have won the toss and have opted to bat


India (Playing XI): Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli(c), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni(w), Axar Patel, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal

Australia (Playing XI): David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith(c), Travis Head, Marcus Stoinis, Peter Handscomb, Matthew Wade(w), Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa

Kohli: It is much more dry than the last season of IPL (2016). It has to do with leveling the outfield. The par score has come down to 143 from 190. The wicket tends to settle down under lights. Every game is motivation for us. We want to grab every opportunity. It is difficult to create good habits and even more difficult to follow those habits. We have given some guys rest: Kuldeep, Bhuvi and Bumrah are not playing. Umesh, Shami and Axar come into the side.

Smith: We are going to have a bat. The wicket has changed from the last time we were around. It will slow up as the game goes on. It has been a bit disappointing so far and we have to get back to winning ways. We have two changes. Wade and Zampa in.
