Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni are warming up for an assault in the slog overs in the second One-Day International (ODI) between India and Australia in the tri-series. This game is being played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Rohit has scored his sixth ODI ton and Dhoni has walked in after the fall of Suresh Raina’s wicket.

Rohit has been batting very well, in an innings of caution and aggression. Rohit has got his first ton in Australia and is the second Indian to get that mark at the MCG. With the stage set, India would be expecting a big score. These two are the ones who would be expected to take the attack. Akshar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin are there, but the men in the middle have the ability to make it an even bigger score.

Earlier, MS Dhoni had won the toss and elected to bat first. The only change in the Australian team was that Gurinder Sandhu has walked in place of Xavier Doherty. Sandhu is the first man of Indian origin to play for Australia. India did not field Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja. Akshar Patel is in there for Jadeja.
