4th ODI India vs Australia: The Men in Blue made four changes for the Mohali ODI, keeping the World Cup in mind. Most of the changes were on the cards once Dhoni was rested, but dormer India cricketer Aakash Chopra seems to unhappy with the changes that were made. He is especially confused with KL Rahul getting back in the team, not as an opener but at India captain, Virat Kohli’s preferred No 3 spot. Chopra questions the selection as he feels what is all the auditioning for. Chopra’s post read, “Rahul plays. But not as an opener. What is he auditioning for??? A floater? Dhawan-Rohit together at top. Kul-Cha back together too.
Meanwhile, India won the toss and opted to bat first. Kohli at the toss felt that runs on the board will help as Australia are still trailing 1-2 in the ongoing five-match ODI series.
At the time of filing the copy, India were 57/0 in 10 overs. Both the openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have given India the start they were after.
