Ind Vs Aus 2nd ODI 2019: Match Preview

Going 1-up in the series, India would look to continue their winning streak and go 2-nil in the 5 match one-day series. Both Rohit Sharma (37) and Virat Kohli (44) looked good while Shikhar Dhawan’s trouble with the form continues as he got out first ball. In a rare event, Jasprit Bumrah conceded 60 off his 10 overs, however, he still got 2 dismissals to boast off. Mohammed Shami has to be the pick of the bowler as he finished with 2 wickets for 44 off his 10 over quota.

Ind vs Aus 2nd ODI 2019 Dream11 Tips and Suggestions:


Wicket-keeper: MS Dhoni has to be the pick from the two teams. He once again came good when India was in trouble, scoring a half-century and maintaining a 140 run stand between him and K. Jadhav. However, Carey showed some temperament and we shouldn’t rule him out just yet!

Batsmen: Virat Kohli is a must have in any Dream11 contest while the out-of-form openers Dhawan and Finch can be backed in hopes of them finally getting some runs! Rohit Sharma and U Khawaja can also be included.

All-rounders: Plenty of choices available in the All-rounders department. Marcus Stoinis scored a decent 37 while Maxwell scored 40 in the 1st ODI. Kedhar Jadhav’s all-round performance (81* off the bat and 1 wicket with the ball) in Hyderabad makes him one of the must-have players in the side.

Bowlers: M.Shami and Pat Cummins have to be the pick of the bowlers. Kuldeep Yadav is at the top of his game and should also make into your playing 11.

Along with him, anyone of Bumrah, Coulter-Nile or Zampa can also be included.

Captain & Vice Captain: With the kind of form he is in, Virat Kohli makes the obvious choice. Alternatively, you can pick between in-form Kedar Jhadhav, or back Finch/Dhawan to make a comeback.
