Rohit, Dhoni battle to keep India in the game

Team India will be taking on Australia in the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Saturday. The commentators though thought India missed an opportunity by not going for a review after the ball hit the batsman right in front of the wicket, but Dhoni's "better safe than sorry" approach reiterated that the man plays it smartly.

"The focus will obviously be on the top three of Shikhar, Rohit and Virat, but I will follow the fortunes of the middle-order with keen interest as and when their turn comes". The Committee of Administrators (CoA) that is overseeing the functioning of the BCCI has sent fresh show-cause notices to the players informing them of this development.

"Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Dhoni these guys that can all play their part as well".

Rohit Sharma's individual brilliance was not enough to make up for a floundering top and middle order as India suffered a 34-run defeat at the hands of a resilient Australia in the first One-day global.

Three batsmen reached half-centuries but Handscomb, passed over this week by selectors for this month's two Tests against Sri Lanka, led the board with six fours and two sixes. When he carved Bhuvneshwar to the deep it brought Glenn Maxwell to the crease with 16 balls of the innings remaining, and he scored 11 runs off the five balls he faced. He's been shuffled around the order a bit in the last little while.

Finch said that the ODI series is a chance for their batting line-up to start afresh after the collective failure in the previous outings. "Bhuvneshwar Kumar is someone who has had success at all levels as well ". Their frontline spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Jadeja, bowled 20 overs to take 3 for 102.

"They (India) have got left, right-arm, spin, leg-spin, off-spin, so they've got plenty of options". I think it was a good learning but we've said that enough about learning now, it's time to go an execute - take the pressure, absorb the pressure.

Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson, both called up in the absence of rested pace bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, quickly reduced India to four wickets for three runs.

"Then to come back and have an eight-week period past year where he just focused on skills for the white ball and how quickly he improved was unbelievable", Finch added.
