Australia has the chance to score a one-day international series win over Virat Kohli’s men on Sunday (first) at the Sydney Cricket Ground Ball 14. 40 p.m. AEDT) after a resounding 66-run win in the first game.
As comfortable as this win was, coach Justin Langer will likely need to make at least one change to the XI.
The Australians lost Marcus Stoinis to a complaint on the left in the middle of the second inning and is unlikely to be fit in time for Sunday’s encounter.

While there are a multitude of candidates to replace Stoinis, it remains a decision Australia can hardly afford to be wrong – the all-rounder was the team’s most economical bowler on Sunday.
Up-and-coming star Cameron Green seems like the most obvious candidate to replace Stoinis in XI, and Fox Cricket’s Adam Gilchrist believes this is an ideal opportunity for him.
« It’s the perfect time to bring a bit of youthfulness to this team, » Gilchrist told Triple M. .
“Warner who played well yesterday (Friday), Smith, Finch. You’re all the wrong side of 30. So it is an ideal time to bring a youngster into an already very established team. ”
But it is far from an open and closed case. While Green’s numbers are exemplary in top-tier cricket, he’s still in the works in List A (bat average) cricket. 27. 83, Bowling Avg. 34. 42).
Seasoned Moises Henriques could be approached for his first international match in three years, but while his pick would add even more confidence to an impressive stroke order, his bowling has rarely been spotted in recent years.
Selectors could also choose to tweak the balance of the side by replacing Stoinis with a bowling all-rounder in the form of Ashton Agar or Sean Abbott.
Agar’s pick would suggest Langer and captain Aaron Finch would expect a little more support for the weirdos after Adam Zampa’s four-for-game in the first game, while Abbotts would provide the team with adequate cover if Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood or Pat Cummins turned out to be too expensive.
India faces its own selection dilemma after being taken apart at the start of the series.
With Bhuvneshwar Kumar injured at home and India not having an all-rounder in the top 6, the Australian batsmen could benefit from the inexperienced third sailor Navdeep Saini (1-83), who knew the tourists only had the five bowlers, that they could rely on.
Next to Saini, the normally reliable Yuzvendra Chahal finished his 10 overs with numbers 1-89, while Jasprit Bumrah (1-73 out of 10) fell below his normally high standards.
India has no easy ways to fix lack of a sixth bowler as there are no all-rounders or even batsmen to roll in their roster, which leaves Kohli contemplating whether to stick with the first ODI XI or spin.
Chahal has excelled for India in the past few years, but if the Indian skipper has serious concerns he could turn to Kuldeep Yadav while the unprotected T Natarajan and right-wing Shardul Thakur alternate as a possible move to Saini.
Australia possible XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Moises Henriques / Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
India possible XI: Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal / Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini / Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah
