    Rohit Sharma on the win

    I thought we batted well, towards the end we could have added 10-15 runs more. We always want a set batter to stay till the end, SKY did it, overall a great batting effort with nice bounce, was a pitch where you can trust your shots. You got to be smart with batting on grounds like these. You can’t forget to push the balls into the gaps, scoring 8-9 runs in an over can be quite an effective plan. It was a great practice game for us. There is room for improvement, but I want more consistency from the bowlers. You need to keep things simple and hit the deck hard. Overall a good game for us, they had a decent partnership and that put us under pressure . He (Shami) is coming back after a long time, so we wanted to give him an over. Wanted to give him a challenge and let him bowl the final over, and you saw what he did.

    Kane Richardson: I think it was the first time Suryakumar missed the middle of the bat against us. He’s one of the best batters in the world at the moment, so it was good taking him. I’m not expecting to start, but if anything happens with form or injury, I could be in, just happy to be out in the middle today. The atmosphere is really nice, we’ll go out there and enjoy our stint in the middle, the sun is out and it’s a good batting pitch. Disappointed to play in front of an empty stadium, we usually have it filled for games against India

    TOSS: Australia wins toss, to bowl

    Rohit Sharma - Just wanted to try out things, we don’t mind batting first and setting a target. We came here early and had a preparatory camp in Perth. These two games will allow us to get into the groove, we want to try out certain things in the two games we have here. I know which bowlers will play in my mind, but it’s important to give them confidence. Few of them are on their first tour of Australia, a fantastic place to play cricket and enjoy while learning the conditions. It’s a privilege, my first time as Indian captain in an ICC tournament and I’ll look to enjoy this.

    Aaron Finch - We will bowl, looks like a pretty good pitch and we’d like to chase. We have played a little more cricket in the lead-up to this tournament, we weren’t at our best against England, lost a few more wickets early. David Warner, Matthew Wade, Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa sit out of today’s game.

  • October 17, 2022 08:59

    Tom Moody says: ‘The conditions are overcast, so there might be early swing and seam. The surface is hard, so batters can take some time in to settle and target a short straight boundary. The side boundaries are 82 and 68 metres. Teams batting first average 168.

    India’s selection dilemma

    India has a selection dilemma concerning its pace bowling when it takes on Pakistan in its first match of the 2022 T20 World Cup in Melbourne next Sunday.

    In such a scenario, India’s first practice match against Australia in Brisbane on Monday assumes more importance for head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma, who are likely to try out different bowling combinations over the next two warmups. With Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh likely to be certainties, the toss up for the third seamer’s will be between Mohammad Shami and Harshal Patel.

    Shami has replaced Jasprit Bumrah, who is out of the tournament due to a back injury. Shami has not played any cricket for the last three months, having last been part of a tour of England in July. He was part of India’s T20I series against Australia and South Africa but had to be withdrawn after testing positive for Covid-19.

    Shami last played a T20I at the 2021 World Cup in the UAE in November. He picked up six wickets from five games at an economy of 8.84 in the tournament. However, he was part of the 2022 IPL title-winning Gujarat Titans and finished as the team’s highest wicket-taker with 20 wickets.

    India also has the option of playing Harshal, who will feature in a World Cup for the first time. Harshal only recently recovered from a rib injury that kept him out of action for six weeks and had average returns with the ball during the recent T20I series against Australia. In three matches, he took just one wicket at an economy rate of 12.37.

    In India’s second practice match against Western Australia XI, Harshal bowled four overs for 27 and took two wickets. Harshal also gives India a batting option at No. 8.

    Death bowling

    India’s death bowling has been a concern heading into the event. In all T20s, for which ball-by-ball data is available, Shami has 61 wickets in 77 innings at 10.71. Meanwhile, Harshal has 54 wickets in 69 innings at 10.13 during the same phase.
