You can never write Australia off before a World Cup! Just months before the quadrennial event, the defending champions showed that they would not give up their crown without a fight by coming from 2-0 down to inflict a stunning 3-2 defeat on pre-WC favourites India. This was Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s first home series loss as captain. Australia’s last ODI series win came nearly two years ago, and with the likes of Steve Smith, David Warner, Mitch Starc and Josh Hazlewood all likely to be added to the squad, few will underestimate the Kangaroos at the World Cup.
Here’s how Australia’s players rated in the PayTM ODI series against India.
Aaron Finch (capt) 5/10
As a batsman, Finch had an ordinary series- only 157 runs in 5 matches at an average of 31.40 as his poor test form continued into the shorter formats. His 93 in Ranchi showed signs of him leaving his lean run behind, but on evidence of this series, his starting spot could be in serious jeopardy when Warner and Smith return.
He however led his team remarkably well, and has achieved something many visiting skippers have been unable to do- an ODI series win in India.
Usman Khawaja- 9.5/10
An absolutely fantastic series for Uzzy, with 383 runs in 5 matches at an average of 76.6. Was remarkably consistent as well- scored his maiden ton in Ranchi which set the tone for the visitors’ comeback, and followed it up with 91 and 100 in Chandigarh and Delhi respectively. Outscored Virat Kohli in a series where the latter scored two back to back centuries!
Rightly declared the Player of the Series.
29 runs in 3 matches at an average of 9.66
A horrendous series for SOS given his normally high standards in this format, and might have just kissed his World Cup hopes goodbye. Was axed for the decider in Delhi after being heralded as a potential saviour for the visitors’ batting on Indian pitches when he was brought into the squad- an indicator of how badly his stocks fell in this series.

Usman Khawaja continued his superb form with the bat by scoring yet another 100, as Australia defeated India by 35 runs in the fifth and final one day international at Feroz Shah Kotla, New Delhi on Wednesday. Continue reading “India vs Australia Delhi Fifth ODI Match Report-2019”
After a stunning win in the fourth one day international at Mohali, Australia would be eyeing a shock series victory when they take on India in the fifth and final one day international at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi on Wednesday. The Aussies looked down and out after losses in the first two games at Hyderabad and Nagpur but fought back to win in Ranchi and Mohali to set up this winner takes all clash in the national capital.
The two teams have played each four times at this venue, with India prevailing on three occasions and Australia winning just once. The last such meeting was a decade ago, when India comfortably chased down 230 with six wickets to spare. Continue reading “India vs Australia Delhi Fifth ODI Match Preview-2019 March 13”

The two sides have squared off against each other in three previous ODI’s at the VCA Stadium, with the hosts emerging victorious in all of them. Continue reading “India vs Australia Nagpur Second ODI Match Preview-2019 March 5”
Kedar Jadhav scored a brilliant 81 as India beat Australia comfortably by 6 wickets in the first one day international at Hyderabad on Saturday.
After winning the toss and electing to bat, the visitors started disastrously as they lost out of form skipper Aaron Finch cheaply to Jasprit Bumrah.
Usman Khawaja and Marcus Stoinis added 87 runs for the second wicket, albeit very slowly, before Jadhav broke through by claiming the wicket of Stoinis, who was caught by Indian skipper Virat Kohli for 37 off 53 balls.
Khawaja was dismissed after reaching his half century, with an excellent catch from Vijay Shankar sending the Australian opener back in the 24th over. Continue reading “India vs Australia Hyderabad First ODI Match Report-2019”
This is the new India cricket shirt 2019, the new Indian jersey for the 2019 Cricket World Cup and other games during the 19/20 season. The new India CWC top was officially unveiled by kit makers Nike on 1 March, 2019, just before the country’s ODI series against reigning WC champions Australia. It will be first worn by the national team in their clash against Justin Langer’s men on March 2, 2019.
From the Men’s team the likes of Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Prithvi Shaw and former captain MS Dhoni were seen modelling the new uniform. Key women’s team players like Harmanpreet Kaur and teenager Jemimah Rodrigues were also present at the event.
The new Indian WC 2019 jersey features the date as well as the latitude and longitude of the venues of their three World Cup triumphs so far (1983 World Cup at Lords, 2007 T20 World Cup in Johannesburg and 2011 World Cup in Mumbai)
The shirt also has tri colour detailing (the colours of the Indian flag) inside the neck. It features a darker shade of blue on the front, with a lighter one on the sleeves, as can be seen in the pictures below.
Australia will be looking for their third straight win at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium when they lock horns with India in the first game of the five match one day series in Hyderabad on Saturday. The visitors have won on both previous trips here and will be brimming with confidence after winning the two game T20 series 2-0- Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s first bilateral series defeat in any format at home.

South Africa have called up all rounder Wiaan Mulder to their squad for the two test series against Sri Lanka at home later this month. The 20 year old is the only addition to the squad that convincingly beat Pakistan 3-0 at home.
Against Pakistan, South Africa fielded a 4 man attack in the form of Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Duanne Olivier and Keshav Maharaj in the opener at Centurion. Olivier, who only got into the XI because of Vernon Philander’s injury, effectively made himself undroppable with a 11fer at SuperSport Park. When Philander returned, they chose to go with an all pace attack in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, with Maharaj having to make way.
In the third test at the Wanderers, the Proteas were without skipper Faf du Plessis, which allowed Zubayr Hamza to make his debut. The Cobras batsman gave a decent account of himself on debut, and it could well be a shoot out between him and Theunis de Bruyn as to whom makes way when the captain comes back. Continue reading “Wiaan Mulder called up to Proteas squad for 2019 Sri Lanka Tests”
After inflicting a record 80 run defeat on India, New Zealand will look to seal the series when the two sides meet in the second T20 in Auckland on Friday. Eden Park is expected to attract a crowd of over 40,000, the highest ever for a cricket game at the venue since the 2015 World Cup.
The Kiwis rode on the back of a fantastic 84 from wicket keeper batsman Tim Seifert to post a massive 219/6 in Wellington. Another similar performance from the Northern Districts star will do his World Cup chances no harm at all. Continue reading “India vs New Zealand Auckland Second T-20 Match Preview 2019”
South Africa’s bowlers held their nerve at the death as Pakistan squandered a golden opportunity to level the three game T20 series in front of a 14,883 strong crowd at the Wanderers. Chasing 189, the visitors fell seven runs short and thus saw their 11 series winning streak in bilateral T20’s broken by the Proteas.
The Proteas gave debuts to Janneman Malan and Lutho Sipamla, while Pakistan brought back Shaheen Shah Afridi. David Miller, in his maiden game as SA captain, lost the toss, and his opposite number Shoaib Malik opted to ask the Proteas to take first guard.

India’s much maligned middle order came to the fore at the Basin Reserve as the visitors defeated New Zealand by 35 runs in the fifth and final One Day International in Wellington.

After a horror show in Hamilton, India will be looking to bounce back in the fifth and final ODI at the Basin Reserve when they meet the Black Caps on Sunday.

A magical spell of swing bowling from Trent Boult saw New Zealand thrash India by 8 wickets in the fourth one day international on Thursday, thus helping the home side to register their first win of the series. Boult bowled his ten overs in one go upfront, and claimed 5/21 as he wrecked the Indian top and middle order in helpful conditions at Seddon Park.
