IND vs AUS Highlights today – 2nd ODI (D/N), India tour of Australia from Sydney Cricket Ground Sunday, 11-29-2020.
Virat Kohli: A bit rusty in the first half. No excuses there, we’ve played 50-over cricket in the past too. But we did see that after the 30-over mark the bodies started to slip because we haven’t played in a while. I think the second half was very encouraging, we kept going despite losing four wickets. You don’t want your bowlers to not have time to think, especially at the death, last 10 overs. (We need) The intensity in the field, having the right fielders in the right places.
Aaron Finch: There’s a little niggle in his side (Stoinis), don’t want to push him too early. Moises Henriques replaces him. (Cam Green) was in consideration, but it’s about the number of overs Moises can give us. The pitch got better as it went on in the last game.
