Date: November 29, 2020
Time: 9:10 AM IST (2:40 PM local time)
Venue: Sydney Cricket Ground
After registering a convincing victory against India in the first ODI, Australia will turn their attention to winning the second game and seal the ODI series. On Sunday, both teams will once again lock their horns at the Sydney Cricket Ground after meeting contrasting fortunes.
On Friday, Australia were ruthless in their batting display. They didn’t even spare one of the best bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah, in Sydney. The team piled up 374 while batting first after winning the toss. Australia will be looking to emulate the same performance against India on Sunday as well.
On the other hand, India will be hoping to win the second game after failing to chase a target of 375 in the previous match. Bowlers looked off-colour whereas the batsmen failed to capitalize during the initial overs. Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya were the standout performers for India with the bat whereas Mohammad Shami was the only bowler who seemed to be economical in the first ODI. Tangarsu Natarajan might replace Navdeep Saini after he experienced the discomfort on Friday.
With two of the biggest cricket rivals meeting each other, expect an intriguing clash on the cards.
