    After Friday morning’s dramatic T20I, Australia’s tour of India moves to the ODI format of the game with the two teams clashing in the first match tonight. We’ll have live scores from 7.00pm AEDT.

    The T20I saw Australia put up 201, only to see India benefit from the dew and flat track and coast to a six-wicket win.

    There was one other thing not too many saw coming, a Yuvraj Singh comeback and in style.

    Interestingly, Australian captain George Bailey had warned before the start of the game that Yuvraj did love playing against them. The left-hander lived up to Bailey’s prophecy and carved out a mouth-watering 35-ball 77.

    It put to shade a similar effort from Aaron Finch who blasted off a 52-ball 89 that had earlier propelled Australia to 201.

    In fact at one stage, Australia looked good to get to more than 220 but lost a few wickets in a heap.

    Things may not be that easy for the batsmen in Pune, which is hosting its first ODI at this venue.

    During the IPL, the track was quite slow and batting on most occasions used to be a tough exercise at this stadium.

    If that remains the case, India will not want to make any changes to their side unless affected by injury.

    In R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja they have two decent spinners – albeit out of form – to test out the Aussie batsmen.

    Mitchell Johnson was held back from the Australian team for the T20I and he could be in line to make it back to the side.

    With Clint McKay most certain to take his place in the side, it would be one of James Faulkner or Nathan Coulter-Nile who will lose their spot if Johnson makes a comeback.

    Australia’s batting has the necessary depth, a fact acknowledged by Dhoni during his pre-match conference.

    There will be one change to the order with Nic Maddinson expected to be dropped and Phil Hughes to take up his spot. The other option Australia have is to bring in Callum Ferguson.

    India, who have now won eight ODIs in a row and defeated Australia the last time the two sides met – in the 2011 World Cup – have their own bowling worries.

    Ishant Sharma is the most experienced of the quick bowlers and he will lead a bowling attack consisting of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and one the other option from the bench.

    The Indian batting line-up won’t change for this game.

    Follow the live score of this T20I between India and Australia from 7.00pm AEST.

      After the winning shoot I pinched myself to check if I am live or in dreams.
      What a splendid unimaginable out-standing performance by the Indian batters. Simply mind blowing and terrific batting by the top 3 batters. Something that can be only dreamed off was made realistic DRV (Dhawan, Rohit & Virat). A little sadness for missing Dhawan’s century.
      In the rest of the series we need to maintain the same batting standards, but needs lot of improvements from the bowling & fielding departments. In the last 3 matches against the Kangaroos our bowling has be a huge disaster and to some extent the fielding too.
      It is the time for the new bowling faces to be on fields now so that we will also be fit for 2015 World Cup. Because bowling will be a big pillar for us to win the World Cup.
      R Ashwin and I Sharma needs a little break and practice off fields.
      Get the new bowlers out of the waiting rooms.
      Well Done Men Of Blue Youngs & All the best for the rest of the series.

      Doesn’t anyone think this series will be good for Australia’s Ashes campaign? These games could arguably have players better prepared, should they be selected for the 1st Test, then a bunch of domestic ODI and Shield games would. Not to mention, should this series go well, we will have a reasonably stable one day team for the next few years through to the World Cup.

      Also, I really enjoyed last night’s game and am looking forward to the next 6.

      Clearly Faulkner is not ready to play for Australia – he can’t even do a high-five properly.
      Never do anything great in sport if you can’t handle the congratulations.

      Once again the most under rated ODI player in the world does his thing with a minimum of fuss. You’d think after taking 89 wickets at 22 there’d be more widespread praise for Clint McKay.

        I thought you meant George Bailey.

        I’ll put the mocker on him. Faulkner becoming the go to guy in one dayers. Kind of like an early Steve Waugh in the bowling department.

      India scoring at will at the moment. Not sure what Bailey is doing.

      Johnson’s last ball was apparently 96 mph.

        Wow, if that’s true that’s insanely quick. He can certainly flick the white ball at good pace, and the red too for sure, but he’s had some frightening numbers in the past in short forms. Ashes bolter you think JGK?

          Hopefully not. Although given Hadfin’s eye injury from Faulkner’s high five might open the door for Hartley!

            That would make my year, with all best wishes and respect to Haddin of course, I’m just an unashamed QLD fan. Cutting for Australian captain (too soon!?).
