Australia Tour of India, 2020, Will the Aussies Win the ODI Trophy?

After the dismissal of Kohli, caught-bowled by leg-spinner Adam Zampa, the Indian line-up failed to put up a challenging total.

And Finch said at this stage he still believed they had the right approach to be successful in the one-day game. Thus, the Indian bowlers should look to come up with solid plans this time, execute them better and ask tough questions from the visitors.

India are scheduled to tour Australia in 2020-21 to play four Tests and three-ODIs, according to India's Future Tour Programs (FTP). Captain Kohli tried all the permutations of his bowlers but could not get the desired breakthrough to break the formidable opening partnership of the Aussie batsmen.

South Africa are second at 23 wins and 18 losses.

Finch rated Kohli "the best one-day player of all time" and was not surprised that the Indian leader chose to demote himself to No.4 in Mumbai.

"There are enough players, coaches and support staff in both teams that straddle both the long and short formats for memories of this series to linger long into the next Australian summer", he said.

"In phases, we were too respectful against their bowlers, and didn't take the game by the scruff of the neck". "Having said that, I don't think it's quite gone our way whenever I've batted number four, so we'll probably have to rethink about that one".

The Aussies are gunning for a slice of history on Friday when they face India in Rajkot, on what is expected to be another batter's paradise.

The top seven Indian batsmen faced 255 balls and scored just 204 runs at 4.8 RPO. I hope both the BCCI & CA make it happen. "India are a quality team and we expect them to bounce back".

Australia are 1-0 up in the ODI series, and their next meeting with India is on Friday (January 17) at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.

Given their pedigree and recent form, a tense battle seemed imminent but Australia proved far superior, clattering home untroubled. "It's very easy to just go with one template and just follow it non-stop", the captain said.

Australia have no issues after a dominating show at the Wankhede. Half of those matches have been against Australia.

India lost five quick wickets after Dhawan and KL Rahul (47) had rallied the innings with their 121-run stand for the second wicket. This is the same thing which the Men in Blue would be hoping for when they enter the SCA Stadium.
