India vs Australia, 5th ODI – Toss Report and Playing XI


Australia have won the toss and have opted to bat

Smith: We are going to have a bat. It looks pretty dry, hopefully it would slow on as the game goes by. It was nice to win the last one, I thought we batted pretty well to get 300 on the board. We have one change, Kane Richardson is sick and James Faulkner comes back in.

Kohli: All we need to do is get the processes right. In the last game I thought we played a good game of cricket but I thought Australia did better. We need to focus on every game and come back hard. The pitch looks very hard, we would’ve batted first as well but it shouldn’t change much through the night. The last time we played here we chased down 350, so happy memories of the ground for us. Three changes – Umesh, Shami and Chahal are out Bhuvneshwar, Bumrah and Kuldeep are in.


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

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli(c), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni(w), Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav
