VVS Laxman, Michael Clarke make prediction for India-Australia series

India vs Australia IPL T20 World Cup Experiences Will Hold Us In Good Stead Says James Faulkner

India vs Australia IPL T20 World Cup Experiences Will Hold Us In Good Stead Says James Faulkner

India captain Virat Kohli is a superior one-day global batsman to Australia counterpart Steve Smith, according to former Aussie skipper Michael Clarke. "So those experiences will help us", Faulkner said after the team's training session at the MA Chidambaram stadium here.

A look back at the ferociously contested Border-Gavaskar Trophy earlier this year, and the rivalry between these two sides comes to the fore.

India take on Australia in the second One-Day International (ODI) at Eden Gardens, in Kolkata.

Clarke saw a "carrot right there" for the Australians, who will topple South Africa from top spot in the ODI table if they beat India 4-1. I don't really want to talk about the past. "It is a good opportunity against a tough opposition in their own country", he said.

Chennai: The cricket-loving Chennai is buzzing as worldwide cricket returns to the city. Be it the first over of a T20 game or the 50th over of an ODI game, I am ready to go through the grind and give it my best.

"Their form over the last few months has been very inconsistent". It's good to be back with my teammates and hit the gym hard. The pace had dropped down a little bit maybe.

Over 1.6 million in Florida lose power from Irma, utility says
Tampa Bay residents without power dropped from about 1.15 million on Monday to a little over 920,000 as of Tuesday morning. Some Florida utilities, including FPL, had warned customers it could take weeks to restore power in the hardest hit areas.

After a long away series in Sri Lanka where the Indian team handed the hosts one embarrassing defeat after the other in all the three formats, the action shifts to home conditions against a very familiar opponent.

India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.

The squad selection saw some young cricketers making a cut, overshadowing experienced ones as the board set its sight on the 2019 World Cup.

The Aussie media even had the audacity to term Kohli classless, and compared the 28-year-old to US President Donald Trump. "Very different conditions. Pitches are also going to be very different in the one-dayers and the T20s to what they faced here in the Test series and what they faced in the Bangladesh series", Clarke said.

MSK Prasad, the chairman of Selectors was also criticized for dropping the match-winners, but he clarified all the rumors and allegations by saying that the players have been rested, keeping in mind of the rotational policy. The trend of flat One-day global pitches offers some hope for the largely spin-vulnerable Aussie line-up.
