India vs Australia, 7th ODI - Live Cricket Score, Commentary
Not to mention, on their last visit here, the Men in Blue won the T20I series So, they will be riding high on a wave of confidence and eager to make an early mark on this trip. Australian cricket, in contrast, has been dogged by structural reform in the wake of the ball-tampering saga in South Africa in March and it has resulted in turbulence on the field as well.
Since the ban, they are yet to win a T20I series against an opposition of note since March. They lost to England in a one-off game in June, then lost to Pakistan in the T20I tri-series final in Zimbabwe, lost to Pakistan again in the bilateral series in the UAE, and then lost to South Africa in a rain-curtailed one-off match on Saturday.
It remains to be seen whether being on home turf would raise the spirits for the once invincible Aussies. The one significant change for India ahead of this series is the return of skipper Virat Kohliwho was rested for the three-match contest against West Indies at home. While it undoubtedly strengthens the visitors, all eyes will be on how the Aaron Finch-led Australian side deals with the best batsman in world cricket at the moment.
While there are calls from all quarters for Australian cricket to keep a check on aggression and play the game in right spirit, Kohli has always garnered attention whenever he has visited here.
