With two centuries against Australia and an average of 44.71, Shikhar Dhawan is expected to propel India early in debut with its longtime partner ODI Rohit Sharma. “Shikhar is in good shape, so he does not play is positive for us,” Ashton Agar told a news conference in Chennai on Friday.
The withdrawal of Shikhar Dhawan left the Indian team management thinking of last minute changes to what was considered a higher order. This also means that India had Axar Patel as the only recognized left hitter, which makes the Australian bowling strategy a bit easier.
“Yes, he (left-right combination) can make things difficult, in which case the balloons swing in a particular direction, making it difficult for the Shikhar field team.) It is an advantage for us, we have to go for the best and see what combination they have established, “said Agar.
MA Chidambaram step in the warm-up game earlier this week has helped the spinners, but it remains to be seen if Australia will put two clues in the first ODI. Hagar was insecure. “It all depends on the wicket Adam (Zampa) is obviously the first spinner on the team and really upset in these conditions in the IPL and previous rounds.
It’s clear that it will start, “said Agar, adding,” If the wicket stays (good), I think there might be a chance (for me). “Ashton Agar said that the Zampa and Yuzvendra Chahal spinning spinners could have an impact on this series since they should not depend on the terrain to extract the return.
“These are truly valuable assets, they can turn the ball around, and when it’s a night, it’s hard to pick the wrong one, they’re really good players and they’re exciting options for the team, they can be difficult to get out of,” he said.
