Virat Kohli speaks at the tos

India captain Virat Kohli: Bit rusty in the first game, no excuses. We have played enough 50 over cricket to pull up professionally. After the 30 over mark, the bodies started to stiffen up a little bit as we have not played a long game for a while. The guys have understood what we need to do right today. The second half was very encouraging even though we lost four wickets. The big partnership (Dhawan-Pandya) kept us in the game. We can take a lot of positives from that. It’s about covering up in the early part of the innings where we are not far behind because you don’t wan’t your bowlers to not have time specially at the death. That’s one thing we are looking to improve on. We are playing the same XI.

Aaron Finch speaks at the toss

Australia captain Aaron Finch: We are going to bat. Stoinis is out today, a little bit of niggle in his side. We don’t want to push him too hard. Moises Henriques replaces him. It’s about the make up of the side and it’s the overs he can give us at the moment. The wicket was pretty good to be fair, got better with a bit of dew. Today, the wicket can get dries and slower as the game goes on.

Hardik Pandya on Indai’s need for 6th bowler

“It is always going to be difficult when you go with five bowlers. When someone is having an off day, you don’t have someone to fulfill the quota.

Maybe we will have to find someone who has already played India, and groom them and find a way to make them play.” - Hardik Pandya

India punished for slow over rate

The Indian cricket team was fined 20 per cent of its match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate against Australia in the series opening first ODI in Sydney. India took an unprecedented four hours and six minutes to complete their 50 overs during their 66-run loss in the first ODI. ICC match referee David Boon imposed the sanction after India was ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration.

2nd ODI Preview:

Having drawn first blood, Australia hold edge over India heading into the second ODI. With another flat deck expected and limited swing on offer, their batting threat looms large on India once again. They were ruthless and robust, especially the batting and based on what the world saw on Friday, have a lot more depth in their squad, let along the XI, than their Indian counterparts. They were beaten 1-2 the last time around. Now is Aaron Finch’s chance to even the odds and dish out a fifth consecutive ODI defeat on the No. 2 ODI team in the world.
