After a 10-wicket duel in Mumbai, India is keen to catch up in Rajkot and prevent the second consecutive loss against Australia at home.
India has to do without the Wicket Keeper Rishabh Pant for the match. Pant, who was hit on the helmet by a Pat Cummins bouncer in the first ODI, was subsequently ruled out with a concussion. KL Rahul, who took the gloves when he was absent from Australia’s innings, is likely to continue in this role.

It is less clear where Rahul will hit. Rahul was usually a first player and ended up third in Mumbai. Virat Kohli took fourth place. However, after India posted a below-average figure, management is expected to review the line-up again. Due to the absence of Pant, you could also play the all-rounder Kedar Jadhav, who can also support bowling.
Australia is not expected to make any changes. Their bowling attack went according to plan and they will want more of it. Aaron Finch and David Warner did not allow Marnus Labuschagne to make his debut, and in the second game, all eyes will be on him.
Remember the last match memories
India’s modest total of 255 after Warner and Finch were asked to hit was a breeze to chase after a record-breaking unbeaten opening. The hosts could not benefit from a strong partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Rahul. Australia’s pacemakers shared seven gates when India’s middle-order overran. A normally violent Indian bowling attack was then dismantled. Warner was emphatic in his 112 balls 128 *, while Finch contributed 110 * to complete the chase in 37.4 overs.

Virat Kohli said:
“I think people have to relax and not panic. I can experiment a little and sometimes fail. You lose games here and there.”
David Warner Said”
“I’m always hungry and wanting to score. I look back on this little phase [in England] and it was just a little hiccup. I wasn’t out of shape, I was out of control.”
