The first ODI was claimed by India last Sunday in Hyderabad by six wickets after Kedar Jadhav's all-around performance made sure Australia didn't start the series on a happy note.

India look to continue their dominance in ODIs

Even though India have missed the services of Hardik Pandya, in Hyderabad Kedar Jadhav did his job quite well to make sure that the team didn't have an issue with the fifth bowler.

There might not be any changes in the bowling line-up, but India could think of resting MS Dhoni or Ambati Rayudu just to give some game time to Rishabh Pant, who was brought back into the side in place of the experienced Dinesh Karthik. Other than this, captain Virat Kohli is unlikely to make any changes to his XI. India could also include Yuzvendra Chahal as Kohli had mentioned during the first game that his team would rotate between Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal.

Finch's form a huge concern for Australia

Shaun Marsh has been in some good form in the ODIs since 2018 in a side which barely has won any matches. He was unavailable for the first game, but according to the Cricbuzz report, the Southpaw will get a spot in the XI in the Nagpur ODI.

Ashton Turner, who made his debut in the previous game will probably sit out as everyone from Stoinis to Maxwell will drop down one spot to accommodate Marsh at no. 3. Captain Aaron Finch's form has been a huge concern for the Aussies and he would be desperate to get back to form in order to maintain his post when Smith and Warner come back.

Nagpur is known to have one of the longest boundaries going around in the country and this is the reason why spinners have enjoyed some good times at this venue.

Having mentioned that, run-scoring has never been an issue on this track and Cricbuzz reports that on Tuesday, we could see another run-fest. Spinners of both the teams will be crucial in this game at least.
