India win toss, opt to bat against Australia

Kohli also feels that apart from Rahul who is batting at an unfamiliar No 4 position each and every player in the team needs to be flexible
"Spin has always played a pretty big part in ODIs, particularly in these conditions". You would imagine the performance would have automatically made him a regular opener, but Rahane had to make way for Rohit, who had been rested for the West Indies series. The two could once again be in line to start for India against the first ODI against Australia in Chennai on Sunday.
Australia's recent ODI form has been atypically horrendous away from home.
In between India's national selectors have snatched their time in the sun, resting, rotating or dropping players without taking them into confidence, thus sending them highly complicated and confusing signals. You need depth in batting, you need depth in bowling as well. When he was captain, MS Dhoni had remarked how Rahane's struggles with strike rotation on slower pitches went against him. He is a living legend in the dressing room and an ornament to the game.
It won't be smooth sailing for the visitors, though, by any stretch of imagination. "All those things are to get that aspect of mind games, which I think creates excitement for fans".
To be any chance of stopping the Indian juggernaut, Australia must place a proper emphasis on the fifty-over format and fight, scratch and claw their way through one of the toughest contests in world cricket. Touted as "mystery spinners" by the team-mates, Kuldeep and Chahal would be banked upon to provide the breakthroughs in the middle of the game. "It paid dividends in the last series as well and that's something we will look to continue as it gives us good balance", said Kohli.
We are all goofed up about the square off between India and Australia in the upcoming ODI series. Kohli said they won't be treating any series differently.
Last week, former Australia skipper Clarke backed the tourists to upset the 1983 and 2011 world champions, saying their time during the IPL will play a key role. Dhawan also bagged the man of the series award in Tests in Sri Lanka. Apart from them, there will be a challenge to prove themselves before a strong team in front of Yusufendra Chahal and Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav. There are three of them at the moment.
For a devoted Indian cricket enthusiast too, the focus has already shifted to the side's much talked about tour to South Africa.
The team defeated West Indies 3-1 in the ODI series before losing the sole T20I. I guess the Australians pride themselves on their fielding and we have worked hard on that skill. "We are very sure of that". We have some extremely good fielders, yes.
