Today India vs Australia 2nd ODI Match Live Score Prediction Playing XI’s 15 Jan 2016 :- After getting defeated by Australia in the opening match of 5 match one day international series at Perth earlier this Tuesday by 5 wickets the time has arrived for skipper MS Dhoni to take the revenge as we are all set for another cracker of a contest. The second ODI match of IND vs AUS 2016 will be played at The Gabba, Brisbane and this exciting game between Men in Blue vs Kangaroo’s will start at around 8:50 AM IST.
If the first One-Day International (ODI) between Australia and India was any indicator, the Brisbane game on Friday (January 15) is likely to only take things up a notch. Rohit Sharma, Steven Smith and Virat Kohli hit the headlines, but so did George Bailey’s floppy hat, Barinder Sran, MS Dhoni and the Decision Review System (DRS).
Australia managed to take a 1-0 lead after successfully chasing down 309, and will be keen on taking the momentum forward. A 2-0 lead will put immense pressure on the visitors, and Australia will try to ensure they take full advantage of a pitch that is expected to be, like the one in Perth, pacer-friendly.
India, despite being 0-1 down, will know that the performance was still worthy of a win. They did well with the bat, struck early with the ball and had a great chance to get themselves a win. Smith and Bailey however turned things around with a stellar stand.
India vs Australia 2nd ODI 2016 Toss Result & Teams
Indian have won the toss after which they have elected to bat first
Smith: “We have made three changes. We have got Richardson in for Hazlwood, he deserves a break. Shaun Marsh comes in and Hastings gets a game for the rested Mitch Marsh. He’s been playing well, he deserves this chance. It has been a fortress for us in all formats. Hopefully, we can restrict them to a good total and chase it down.”
Dhoni: “We are batting first. It looks like a good wicket, so we want to put runs on the board. It would have been good to get 20-25 runs. There were quite a few misfields by the bowlers themselves. If we get 310 on this wicket, I think it could be a good total. I think what’s important to see how the wickets are prepared. You look at the wicket and the conditions, then decide what we want to do. In place of Bhuvi, we have Ishant Sharma.”
