Vijay Shankar has joined the Indian squad before the Australia v India second ODI at Adelaide on January 15. The Tamil Nadu all-rounder's call-up comes after Hardik Pandya was sent back home from the tour due to his questionable comments on an India talk-show. Even though Shankar's arrival into the team gives captain Virat Kohli an additional option to choose from, he may not be directly slotted in the XI.

After the loss in the first game, vice-captain Rohit Sharma had said in a press conference that he believes that MS Dhoni should bat at no.

4. Kohli's deputy also added that the batting order would be finally decided by the captain and the coach, Ravi Shastri. In the second ODI, there could be some changes in the batting order as India looks to find their perfect combination for the World Cup later this year.

Rayudu reported with suspect action

Ambati Rayudu was called out for suspected action after the first ODI. This will not prevent him from bowling in Adelaide, but he needs to get his action cleared within 14 days.

If India decides not to risk Rayudu's position, then the side will be left with no sixth bowling option.

This is where Kedar Jadhav comes into the frame, who missed out a spot to Dinesh Karthik at no. 6 in the Sydney ODI. According to the Cricbuzz report, Jadhav will be seen coming back into the side replacing Karthik.

Khaleel Ahmed's expensive spell in the previous game may not be a problem considering the amount of faith the team management has shown in the young left-arm pacer. Mohammad Shami went wicketless, but his economical spell might give some hopes to the captain and the management. India may not make changes before this crucial match as a loss would mean the series slipping away from their hands entirely.

Mitchell Marsh fit and back in the contention

Australia seems sorted in its selection course for the Adelaide game, but Mitchell Marsh's recovery puts another question to the team management.

After spending two days in a hospital with a stomach illness, Marsh was declared fit for the upcoming games in Adelaide and Melbourne.

With Stoinis and Handscomb hitting form in the last game, it will be interesting to see with captain Aaron Finch decides to change or not. His deputy Alex Carey did talk to the press and defended Finch by stating that the team believes that he will hit form soon with all the training behind him. Finch has been struggling some bad form of late and will be under the pump when his team arrives at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday.

Nathan Lyon's return to white-ball Cricket was a bit underwhelming in Sydney, and Adam Zampa might be a good option considering that the leg-spinner had done with against India in the T20I series.

Last few days have been really hot down in Adelaide and Tuesday won't be any different. To win the second ODI between Australia and India, both teams will have to contest under the sun and fight the heat more than anything. Considering the stats of the last few games, it can be predicted that this match might not be the most high-scoring game, but a spicy track will make up a good game of cricket.
