Toss India chose to bowl vs Australia
India went in with three seamers in Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur, apart from Hardik himself. Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav are the two spinners.
The match is being played on the centre pitch at Wankhede stadium, so there’s no real short or long boundary. The surface has an even covering of grass, and the ball is expected to come onto the bat nicely. With Marcus Stoinis carded at No. 8, Australia have the required batting depth to aim for a dew-proof total.
India: 1 Ishan Kishan, 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suryakumar Yadav, 5 KL Rahul (wk), 6 Hardik Pandya (capt), 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Shardul Thakur, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Mohammed Siraj, 11 Mohammed Shami
Australia: 1 Travis Head, 2 Mitchell Marsh, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 Marnus Labuschagne, 5 Josh Inglis (wk), 6 Cameron Green, 7 Glenn Maxwell, 8 Marcus Stoinis, 9 Sean Abbott, 10 Mitchell Starc, 11 Adam Zampa
