How Rohit's return will solve sixth bowling option? explains Gambhir

According to Gambhir, this is the kind of problem which can't be sorted even if a opener of Rohit Sharma's calibre comes back.
 
"You can talk (about) putting in Manish Pandey, even if and when Rohit Sharma comes back in the XI, the problem you are facing now you will be facing then. There is no one in the top six who can actually give you a coupe of overs," he said.
 
While Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell are already in the playing XI as pace and spin bowling all-rounders respectively, Australia have a number of back-up men with multiple skill-sets, including rookie Cameron Green, who is set to make his international debut.
 
"And if you see the Australian side, there is Moises Henrqiues, who can give you couple of overs, there is Sean Abbott who is bowling all-rounder. They have Daniel Sams who can both bowl and bat.

Who can be India's sixth bowling option?

The answer for the above mentioned question is -- NO ONE --- because India does not have a all-rounder option in its current ODI squad. Here's what Gambhir said for future ODIs.

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir feels Virat Kohli's team will keep facing the problem of imbalance till it finds a suitable replacement for a half-fit Hardik Pandya as his nearest competitor Vijay Shankar is not of same level.
 
Pandya is playing currently as a specialist batsman and is not sure when he would be fully fit to bowl in ODI cricket. India lost to Australia by 66 runs in a high-scoring series opener in which the visitors missed a sixth bowling option.
 
Asked if there is a problem of balance, the hero of two World Cup triumphs couldn't agree more.
 
"Big time and this has been happening what -- since the last World Cup. If Hardik is not fit (to bowl), where is your sixth bowling option," Gambhir said.
 
"It's only Vijay Shankar that I can think of but does he have the same impact batting at No 5 or 6. Can he give you seven or 8 overs, I have my doubts," the straight-talking Gambhir said.
 

India fine for slow overrate in 1st ODI

The Indian cricket team was fined 20 per cent of its match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate against Australia in the series opening first ODI in Sydney.
 
India took an unprecedented four hours and six minutes to complete their 50 overs during their 66-run loss in the first ODI.
 
ICC match referee David Boon imposed the sanction after India was ruled to be one over short of the target after time allowances were taken into consideration.
 
"In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fee for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time," the ICC said on Saturday.
 
"Skipper Virat Kohli pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing," the release further stated.
 
On-field umpires Rod Tucker and Sam Nogajski, TV umpire Paul Reiffel and fourth umpire Gerard Abood levelled the charge.
 
Longest ODI match: Steve Smith
 
Even Steve Smith after the match conceded that it was the longest 50-over game he had been part of.
 
"It was the longest 50 overs in the field I've ever had, that's for sure.
 
"I don't know what to put that down to. Obviously a few people came on the field in the first innings which took a bit of time and I think they (India) went 45 minutes over the scheduled time and we were something similar," Smith said.
 

AUS vs IND 2nd ODI: Can Bumrah improve his performance today?

The lack of a sixth bowling option will put tremendous pressure on Bumrah, whose erstwhile ODI form has deserted him since he came back from his stress injury.
 
While he was brilliant in the IPL, just like the New Zealand series in February, the Gujarat slinger looked pedestrian at best at the SCG.
 

AUS vs IND 2nd ODI: Who will be India's sixth bowling option?

Kohli lamented after Friday's match that the team doesn't have someone like Glenn Maxwell or Marcus Stoinis.
 
"Unfortunately, Hardik is not fit enough to bowl, and we don't have other allround options to pick from either, someone like Stoinis or Maxwell," he said after the match.
 
Pandya, who is playing only as a batsman as his bowling is not match-ready, also agreed with it and said that India need to prepare more all-rounders for the future.
 
Lack of all-round option means India have no one to fall back on in case a bowler has an off-day like Chahal did on Friday. In the India line up Shreyas Iyer and Mayank Agarwal are the batsmen who can roll over their arms but both the players had never bowled at international level. 

India are in a very tricky situation as it don't have Sehwag, Sachin and Ganguly.
 

Australia will win series in all formats vs India, predicts Vaughan

Hosts Australia are the favourites to win the series against India across all formats, former England captain Michael Vaughan has predicted, pointing out that the Aaron Finch's team was outstanding in the first game on Friday.
 
India lost to Australia by 66 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground after the hosts scored 374 for six in their 50 overs. The two teams face off again on Sunday, at the same venue.
 
Vaughan expressed his opinion on Twitter and criticised India heavily.
 
"Early call... I think Australia will beat India this tour in all formats convincingly," he tweeted.
 
"India's over-rate is appalling... !!! Body language defensive... fielding is my standard (shocking)... Bowling ordinary!!! Aussies on the other hand have been outstanding... Long tour for India me thinks," added Vaughan.
 
As Australian batsmen prospered, none of the Indian bowlers looked good. Worse, India did not have a back-up option to lend support to their bowlers, who were leaking runs by the bucketful.
 
"This Indian ODI team is too old school for me.... Just 5 bowling options & the batting isn't deep enough!!!" Vaughan added.
 

Virat Kohli's Sunday challenge - Improve ODI average at SCG

Apart from trying to help India draw level with Australia in three-match series today, India skipper Virat Kohli faces a personal challenge when his side takes on the hosts in the second game.
 
Kohli, who has an impressive average of 59.14 in his ODI career, has an abysmal average in the 50-over format at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
 
In six one-day innings at the venue, he has aggregated just 57 runs at a poor average of 11.40. His strike rate is also below his career strike rate - it is 64.04 at SCG as compared to 93.26 in his career.
 
While this limited-overs series' rivalry between the two teams was built around Indian skipper's battle with Steve Smith, the Australian drew the first blood with a 66-ball 105 to walk away with the man of the match award in the first ODI on Friday.
 
Kohli's form in Tests at SCG is better -- he averages 49.60 from five innings at the SCG. It is just a few notches below his career average of 53.62.
 
In T20s, however, Kohli has played just two innings at the venue and has an average of 111 with half-century in both the innings.
 
He will surely want to play a match-winning innings not just to get his team back on track but also to improve his ODI average.
 

Australian squad for ODI series

Aaron Finch (captain), David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Cameron Green, Moises Henriques, Andrew Tye, Daniel Sams, Matthew Wade (wicketkeeper).

India vs Australia 2nd ODI preview

India have just one day to rebound and recover from the psychological blow that Australia inflicted on them by winning the first One-day International after setting their highest-ever total in the 50-over format against India in Friday's game at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
 
The two teams face each other in the second ODI at the same venue on Sunday.
 
Australia had hammered 374 for six wickets in 50 overs, built on centuries from captain Aaron Finch and Steve Smith, half-century from David Warner and a 19-ball 45 from Glenn Maxwell.
 
Josh Hazlewood then rubbed salt to India's wounds as he removed three of the top four batsmen inside the first 10 overs with short deliveries as Virat Kohli's team, despite a fightback from Hardik Pandya, fell short by 66 runs.
 
The ODI series is the first for India in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, from which the top seven teams will qualify for the 2023 World Cup, to be held in India.
 
India, playing in the retro jersey from 1992 World Cup, faced problems on different counts -- the bowling and fielding was not up to the mark and their over rate was slow enough to force ICC to dock 20 per cent of the players' match fees.
 
None of the bowlers, except Mohammed Shami, could go below six runs an over with leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal conceding 89 in his 10 overs. Chahal's is the most by an Indian bowler in ODI history.
