AUS vs IND Fantasy Prediction: Australia vs India 2nd ODI – 29 November (Sydney). The hosts proved their superiority in the last game and a win here will seal the series for them.
Hosts Australia will take on India in the 2nd ODI match of the three games ODI series. Two heavyweights are up against each other, and this series is going to be an outstanding affair.
Australia dominated India in the last game and, they have won their last six games at this ground. The top-order was in fine form whereas, Adam Zampa continued his fine form in the 2020 season. However, the team will miss the services of Marcus Stoinis, who is going to miss due to an injury. The team needs to work on their fielding in this game, or else they are a brilliant team.
India were completely dominated in the last game and, this is a Do or Die game for them. The bowling was completely rattled in the last game and need to come back strong here. Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya proved their abilities with the bat and need the support of others. However, the team is missing the 6th bowler and, the fielding also should improve. This game is going to be another tough test for the visitors.
