After being clinically decimated in the series opener, India knew they had to reply back with an emphatic display. And the side did exactly that in their 36 run win over Australia in the second ODI, one which saw them reaffirm their stature as a worldclass unit.

IND Vs AUS Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
He was massively demoted down India’s batting order as Kohli ended up reinstating himself in his preferred number three spot. However, KL Rahul still managed to come up with 81 runs for the side to make him our pick in this docket of our Dream 11 unit.
IND Vs AUS Dream11 Batsmen
With 78 runs the last time around, Virat Kohli showed why he should never even consider leaving his preferred batting position. The side’s captain also exulted his love for Australia in the knock, alluding to why this side is one of his favourite opponents in the world as he dispatched the ball to the fence with ease.
He was part of a 111 run stand with Shikhar Dhawan who scored 96 runs in that outing, putting on his second 50 of the series to see us move in for him as well. Rohit Sharma ended up getting the 42 runs in the opening slot to see him wrap up our three man batting order form the home side.
Elsewhere, from Australia we had to move in for two picks from a three player pool. We poured hectic deliberations, in the end deciding to leave out Aaron Finch despite him scoring 33 the last time around given how perturbed he was while getting those runs.
Opener David Warner comes in instead for us along with Steve Smith who accrued the 98 runs the last time around. It was a knock which kept his side in the chase till the very last moment, a display which showed why he can be such an explosive bat.
IND Vs AUS Dream11 All-Rounders
Jadeja or Labuschagne?
Someone who accompanied him in that outing with 46 runs, Labuschagne really lured us in but we had to choose between him and Ravindra Jadeja for the day.
While Jadeja did brilliantly in Rajkot, picking up 2 wickets and scoring some handy runs with the bat, we would be tempted to leave him out for this game, as the Bengaluru wicket wouldn’t aid spin bowling.
Jadeja thus could be taken to the cleaners and with the Chinnaswamy being a belter, he might not get a lot of chance to do something with the bat.
Thus, we go ahead with Marnus Labuschagne for this game, as the batting track in Bangalore would help him pile up the runs, a glimpse of which was given in the 2nd ODI.
Ashton Agar comes in meanwhile from Australia despite getting cleaned out with the ball in the second encounter. At 8 credits, he’s someone who can contribute in both the components, a name who offers pristine value to our side.
IND Vs AUS Dream11Bowling Order
We are deciding to leave out Jasprit Bumrah for today’s encounter owing to Australia’s approach towards him. The side’s gameplan when facing off to him n the powerplay overs is to not give any wickets to the quick, playing him attentively and cautiously in a bid to see away his overs.
And someone who has benefitted massively from the pressure Bumrah has exerted from one end has been Mohamed Shami, someone who ended up getting three wickets the last time around. We move in with him and Navdeep Saini for this one with Saini massively impressing with his wicket to wicket line and length in the death overs which saw him rake up two wickets.
Elsewhere, Adam Zampa has persistently perturbed India across the series with his rippers leaving the right hand heavy unit of India seeing him pick up four wickets in the series. His ability to throw the ball up and give it air makes sees us move in with him over Richardson while Cummins and Starc were both out of our reach given their hefty price tags.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We continue to go in with Kohli as our unit’s captain while Rohit will be the vice-captain.
Note: Go in with Bumrah if India bowl first and Dhawan if India bat first
