Labuschagne makes his ODI debut
India hammered in powerplay
Aaron Finch and David Warner are firing loaded salvos here against India's new-ball attack. India, on their part, haven't really displayed much nous like we saw Australia do earlier on. Even with no swing on offer, they've kept pitching it up rather than adopting Australia's successful approach of moving to the cross-seam variety. As a consequence, they're getting hammered. The lengths haven't been great, nor has the consistency either. This is getting away rapidly from them in front of a muted Wankhede. Australia 84 for 0 (10 overs)
Update on Pant:BCCI have stated that the wicketkeeper-batsman suffered a concussion after the blow to his head that led to his dismissal. He is currently being monitored, while KL Rahul has donned the gloves.
Familiar collapse sees India fold for 255
There's no total enough at Wankhede. This one surely can't be. But what do we know; India and Australia love to go at each other and churn out a bit of drama out of nothing. So it all started with India being sent in to bat first here -- no, this didn't quite pan out like that T20I versus West Indies you are hungover on -- and imploded to 255. There was a century stand between Rahul and Dhawan, the latter being preferred as the opener, which meant Kohli moving down to No. 4, the recently permanent temporary position that's rushed India off its feet. The move meant dropping Kedar Jadhav, leaving India with only five bowlers in the second innings. Are you still with me? Okay. So Starc picked three, Cummins and Richardson two each, and we have a contest on our hands. We definitely are due this home season.
Brief recovery, but going down again
There was a brief recovery from India through a 49-run stand between Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant, but both of them have now been dismissed in quick succession. Australia well and truly on top.
The slide continues
Make it four wickets for 30 runs now. Iyer, softened up by a bouncer from Starc earlier in the over, tamely pokes at a length ball going across him. Gets the edge through to Carey. India are sliding here, and sliding sharply.
Three wickets for 22 runs
India have lost Rahul, Dhawan and Kohli in a span of 22 runs. This is a strong fightback from Australia after a 121-run stand between Rahul and Dhawan. After Agar removed Rahul, Dhawan - in the very next over - got a leading edge off Cummins that spooned towards mid-off. Then, Kohli - off to a brisk start - smashed his drive straight back at Zampa who took a brilliant return catch.
Rahul throws it away
He's not happy with himself. Has good reason not to be, hitting Agar's delivery uppishly straight to short extra cover. Misses out on the fifty, although Rahul would've harboured even higher hopes. Nevertheless, Australia have broken through the 121-run stand. Rahul c Smith b Agar 47(61)
Fifty for Dhawan
Dhawan brought up his half-century off 66 balls and then got a reprieve soon after as Warner put down a difficult chance. A hard sweep went low to his left but he couldn't hold on. It's been steady progress for India so far. The duo of Dhawan and Rahul have consolidated nicely with a 100-run stand but haven't really pressed on yet.
Dhawan gets a move-on
The left-handed opener was on 3 off 22 balls, but has since turned the switch. He struck five boundaries off his next 9 balls to give India a push in the first powerplay, after much labouring early on. Still, Australia should be the happier side at the end of 10 overs. India - 45 for 1.
Starc's first ODI scalp in India
That comes as a bit of a surprise, but this is only his second game in the country after making his debut here. In any case, he's struck early to remove Rohit. Looked like the ball slightly stopped in the pitch - at least that's what Rohit indicated as he drove uppishly to mid-off. Comfortably taken by Warner. Rohit c Warner b Starc 10(15).
Easy as you please:
First ball of the match, Starc goes full in search of swing but there isn't any. And Rohit's dialled in right from the off. So here's what happens (from our bbb comms)
0.1 Starc to Rohit, FOUR, what a shot to start with! Starc pitches it up to search for some swing but there isn't any, width on offer and Rohit creams the drive through the gap at cover. Fab stroke and it just rocketed off the blade
There's almost an action replay off the fifth ball too, with Starc later shaking his head in wry bemusement at how there's no movement at all. There's runs there, you better believe it.
No Josh Hazlewood for Australia, who have instead chosen Kane Richardson while playing both spinners.
Playing XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey(w), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
India have included all three openers. In doing so, Kedar Jadhav's had to make way. So it looks like Rahul will play three, Kohli four. Also, interestingly, Navdeep Saini misses out in favour of Shardul Thakur. Has to be the value Thakur brings lower down with the bat, no? Can't see any other reason for it.
Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah
Australia opt to bowl
Australia are leaving nothing to chance in their preparations
Relevance? What relevance?
The scene-setter for a series that's going to (not just promises to) enthrall
Marnus Labuschagne will be Australia's 229th ODI cap as he makes his debut today.
It's the contest which sells itself, taking the burden off people like us. Never a dull moment when India and Australia collide. Plus you throw in the atmosphere of the Wankhede Stadium - cranking up the decibels as ever, stack up all the speed demons that are just waiting to be unleashed, pit together all the heavyweights with the bat and voila, there's your day's entertainment sorted. Unless you're one of those looking around for relevance, in which case I'm sorry for you. The rest, just hang in here. This is going to be one crazy ride.
If you haven't already, watch this:
BCCI @BCCI These two ?????????? @Jaspritbumrah93 & @navdeepsaini96 firing on all cylinders #TeamIndia #INDvAUS @Paytm 01:48 PM  Jan 01, 2020
It's not just these two. There's Mohammed Shami in the wings as well. On the other side, Mitchell Starc is going to play his first ODI in India since he made his debut here and will be paired with Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood - the trio coming together after quite a while. Just take my money. And that's even without taking the batting muscle into consideration.
India have problems of plenty at the top. With all three openers in good touch, there's talk of Kohli dropping down to four. How will that pan out?
Australia, on the other hand, will have Smith, Warner, Labuschagne who weren't there on their previous tour here where they still won 3-2. But, interestingly, they've left out the all-rounders in Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis, both of whom have set the BBL on fire recently.
