Once again the supremacy wars are resumed at Adilade in Australia between the existing champions and emerging champions.
India knowing the fact that, a draw here will not solve the purpose of regaining the pride lost by the disputed umpiring decisions at Sydney. A win here will not only help to level the series at 2-2 but will also work as the moral booster for the younger Indian players who will take the top two teams of last ODI world cup in a triangular contest.
Though I was with mind of not commenting on the behavior of Indian cricket selectors but forced to right, as they wish to give time to selected player to be prepared mentally for this tour. My question is that is it affordable to allow new players time for getting mentally prepared at the price of disturbing the mental status of players in the ongoing series. It will be surely a painful and humiliating for Rahul and Sourav to learn that they are not part of ODI squad and surely this will play with their mental health.
India has come with a positive mind of frame by selecting five bowlers in the playing eleven and on the day one at lunch were satisfactory progressed to 90 odd runs in 26 over for lost of Irfan and Dravid.
Playing with five specialist bowlers is a clear message to Australians that Indians are going with the mental status of going all out for repeating the Perth result and keeping the hopes of leveling the series alive.
