Marcus Stoinis: Australia Need to Score Big Totals

Australia are touring India for a five-match ODI series and three T20Is beginnings from September 17. The last time Australia played a one-day series in India was way back in 2013 which India won by 3-2. Being a day game, toss will not have much significance, but the captain who wins the toss will most likely bat first.

There was disappointment on the Test front as well.

While Stoinis and his team had a good outing, it was also a bit of a reality check for the Board President's side, and coach Hemang Badani felt that players have enough to learn from Tuesday's match. The sky above Chennai is clear, and there are absolutely no chances of rain.

"I think when you are exposed to conditions, it obviously helps", Stoinis said. There are a lot of people in the same position who haven't played, or haven't been selected for a while. I think you ask any player when he gets left out it is not great fun.

"But that happens in every single series".

Australia batsman Aaron Finch ruled out of warm-up tie

Stoinis top scored with 76 while Head and Smith chipped in with 65 and 55 respectively. It is good to be back with my teammates and hit the gym hard. "I worked with Sriram during my first season in the Indian Premier League with Delhi Daredevils in 2015". Boundaries came off edges, and the players selected seemed to be getting more than what they'd bargained for.

With no less than six allrounders in Australia's 14-man squad, just where Stoinis fits into the XI is yet to be seen, although his knock at No.6 on Tuesday proved again that he has both the defensive game to handle an early collapse and the attacking power to accelerate late in the innings. That stupendous performance notwithstanding, Stoinis could only manage to play one more ODI before making way for others.

Although he did allow himself a brief moment of speculation that after another year on the fringes, his worldwide career is about to re-launch. "I am no selector but maybe there is room for both", said Stoinis.

Skipper Steve Smith, David Warner, Travis Head and all-rounder Marcus Stoinis slammed fifties to propel Australia to a big score in their only warm-up game ahead of the limited-overs series against Indian cricket team.
