India will be up against Australia for the second time in the 3-match series on Sunday. India won the first game of the series by 5 wickets and is currently leading the series by 1-0. The Men in Blues will welcome the Aussies for the India vs Australia 2nd ODI at the Holkar Stadium, Indore. This is the second time this year that Australia are engaged in a three-match ODI series on Indian soil, having previously won 2-1. Australia have secured victories in their last two ODI series against India.

As India are preparing for the upcoming ODI World Cup, the Indian team will be eager to clinch the series in the second ODI. KL Rahul is leading the side for the first two matches, with Rohit Sharma returning to lead in the third. Ravichandran Ashwin made his ODI comeback after nearly 20 months and produced a decent performance.

Australia will come into the second game after a bad performance at Mohali. Although they started well, they lost the stage which led to a disappointing defeat. Pat Cummins would like to make a comeback after the poor performance and Australia will surely be there, especially in this kind of situation.

India vs Australia | Pitch & Weather Report

The wickets of the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore are considered batting-friendly. With slow bowling options, the team batting first and posting a big total can put pressure on the side chasing. The chase and defend record is equal at the venue. The last ODI match at this venue shows this, where India amassed an impressive 385 runs, thanks to centuries from Gill and Rohit Sharma.

However, considering the anticipated overcast weather conditions in Indore on Sunday, it's likely that bowlers, especially fast bowlers, could have an advantage. These conditions may lead to the ball moving in the air and off the pitch, particularly during the initial overs of the match.

India vs Australia | Possible XI

India:

Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul(w/c), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami

Australia:

David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Cameron Green, Josh Inglis(w), Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Short, Pat Cummins(c), Sean Abbott, Adam Zampa
