Australia have found themselves in deep trouble in the ongoing first ODI against India at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Whenever it seems that a partnership is forming, the hosts have chipped in and have taken wickets.
After the decent start by David Warner (52) and Steve Smith (41), Australia failed to build on the momentum and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Cameron Green looked settled at the crease and with the way he was batting, it seemed that he would take the team to a good total.
However, a mixup in the middle with Jos Inglis saw Cameron Green getting run out. It was during the 40th over when Mohammed Shami bowled a slower-length ball to the all-rounder. The Australia batter got the outside edge and KL Rahul failed to gather it after bouncing as ball towards the third man.
Cameron Green took the first run quickly and was keen to take the second run. Jos Inglis however, didn’t see his partner coming for second. The lanky all-rounder almost came to the middle of the pitch and then turned back. Rahul threw the ball to bowler Mohammed Shami who missed it.
Suryakumar Yadav fortunately was behind him. He struggled but he threw the ball backhandedly onto the stumps. Here’s the video of the Cameron Green’s wicket:

India and Australia Playing 11 for the first ODI in Mohali
Mohammed Siraj isn’t well and that’s why missed the first game. Ravichandran Ashwin, who was included in the squad for the series, made a straight entry into the XI. India have gone in with just 5 specialist bowlers. Here’s the Indian XI for the first ODI:
Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (c & wk), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami
Australia on the other end have played just three specialist bowlers while the rest of the team is filled with all-rounders. Alex Cary has been rested and in his place, Jos Inglis has got the opportunity. Here’s Australia playing 11:
David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Cameron Green, Josh Inglis (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Short, Pat Cummins (c), Sean Abbott, Adam Zampa
