"So I think players need to adapt to team requirements".
The format changes from the five-day Tests to the fifty over ODIs but the intensity, passion and will to win will be the same, something both teams have adopted from their fiery, oft-grumpy leaders Steve Smith and Virat Kohli respectively.
"He is a terrific batsman and has been that for a long time now". It was a one-handed blinder by Maxwell which threatened to be quite a serious setback for the hosts.
Australia surprised India's top order with a brilliant display of swing bowling in the first match of the ongoing five-match One Day International (ODI) series. He will find a way out. He will have a lot of impact in the series.
Expectation: The pitch is smooth with some attractive surroundings, but Smith said that the pitch is too soft and tender.
The Aussies have not played ODIs since the ICC Champions Trophy and will look to put aside their disappointing loss to Bangladesh in the first Test in Dhaka. That partnership [between Dhoni and Pandya] turned out to be a match-winning one. "Virat realises MS Dhoni is looking to win matches for India".
The surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium tends to get progressively worse for batting.
Rain started falling shortly after India fought back to post 7-281 off their 50 overs after the Australian bowlers dominated early.
Due to rain, the target for Australia was revised and the visitors needed 164 in 21 overs to win. But when they lost Hardik, I thought Nathan could have come back and I wanted to go for the throat.
"Australia should've attacked when India were down in the dumps". Both countries India vs Australia are also ready to short listed their players who will be played at the 2019 World Cup which is now yet to start.
"Kuldeep is very good". It was probably the hardest time to bat with the new ball. Competition for places is good, but beyond a point when answers are not found, it can get tricky. His control as a wrist spinner from the back of his hand is wonderful and is his strength. It's only clever for him to not underestimate India because of our very strong batting lineup and skilled bowlers. He has got all the skills.
The two sides have won four matches each in the eight T20Is they have played.
Kohli was furious after a Test in Bangalore in March this year, when Smith looked up to his dressing room from the field - where replays could be seen by teammates - while deciding whether to challenge an lbw dismissal. This proves costly for Patel who want to prove his mettle against our old rivals as he took 6 wickets in the recently concluded ODI Series against Sri Lanka.
