Now both these teams will face each other at Holkar Stadium in Indore on Sunday. In this match, Team India will be eyeing another win and taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. On the other hand, the visiting Australia will be trying to make a comeback in any case and hence it may appear in a more dangerous situation than the first match, but if Team India has to win then it will have to do what it did on the same ground six years ago.

The Indian team is going without Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav in the first two matches of this series, because the selection committee has given them a chance to rest in the first two matches.

what happened 6 years ago
Teams of India and Australia played ODI match in Holkar Stadium in the year 2017. In this match played six years ago, India had won by five wickets. Now exactly six years later, these two teams are clashing again on the same ground. We are saying exactly six years because in 2017, the match between India and Australia took place on 24 September. Now six years later, it is the same ground, same date and same two opponents. In the match played in 2017, India batted in the second innings and the target of 294 runs given by Australia was achieved by losing five wickets in the first 13 balls. Now once again Team India has to do what it did six years ago, i.e. defeat Australia and capture the series.
batting first is beneficial
A total of eight ODI matches have been played so far in Holkar Stadium. In these eight matches, there have been only two occasions when the team playing the second innings has won. The first match at this stadium was played in the year 2006. This match was played between India and England. India had won this match. In this match also, India won by playing the second innings. After this, India won in 2017 while playing the second innings. Apart from these two occasions, in the remaining six matches the team which batted first won. Looking at these figures, the captains of both the teams would like to win the toss and bat first. However, India has shown how to win here by playing the second innings, so there should be no problem if Team India plays the second innings also.

There will be changes in playing-11
India had achieved a spectacular victory in the first match. It is a big question whether Rahul will make any changes in the playing-11 in the second match or not. Shreyas Iyer had disappointed in the first ODI match and was run out and walked away. Iyer will have to regain his form before the ODI World Cup. Ravichandran Ashwin also could not leave an impact on the Mohali pitch. Iyer is certain to play but there should be no surprise if Washington Sundar gets a chance in place of Ashwin. Whereas Rahul can rest Jasprit Bumrah and play Mohammad Siraj in the second match.
Will Australia’s playing-11 change?
In the first match, Australia did not have names like Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood in the team. It is considered certain that he will not play in the second match also. However, in Indore, Marcus Stoinis may be rested and Aaron Hardy may get a chance in his place. The return of wicketkeeper Alex Carey is also considered confirmed but it remains to be seen in whose place he comes.
