India vs Australia 2019: Australia would be high on confidence after whitewashing India in their backyard in the recently concluded two-match T20I series. Now, the game shifts to a different pitch as the Men in Blue host Australia in a five-match ODI series starting March 2 at Hyderabad. Former Australian legend Matthew Hayden was spotted during an Australian training session at Hyderabad where he was helping old mate coach Justin Langer. The two former cricketers share a great camaraderie as they used to open the batting together in Tests for Australia. After the training session, langer said that Hayden at the session felt good and also seemed like a brother was there beside you helping.

In the past legends like Glenn McGrath and Ricky Ponting have been spotted assisting Langer, who likes it.
Meanwhile, Glenn Maxwell said he would prefer batting higher up the order in ODIs, following his series-winning 113 at number four in Australia’s seven-wicket victory against India in the second T20 International. Maxwell bats at number 7 in ODIs and would happily take a promotion in the five-match ODI series starting in Hyderabad on March 2.
The 30-year-old slammed his third T20 international hundred on Wednesday night, an unbeaten 113 off 55 balls, to blow away India and win the series 2-0. “In my case tonight, when I came out, it was 15 overs to go I think. And as long as I get a 80 or a 100 out of that even, if I am doing that at a No 6 or a 7, it doesn’t really matter. It’s just me making the most of the opportunities when I get them,” said Maxwell.
