Over the past couple of months, Indian cricket fans were assured of a win barring the margin of victory. However, come Sunday, sledging will be back and fans know it won’t be a walk in the park for either side. It’s rivalry reloaded.
India take on Australia in a five-match ODI series on home soil and the MA Chidambaram Stadium at Chepauk is decked up to host the first round of what will be an intense cricketing battle.
In the past these two arch rivals have thrilled cricket lovers with some brilliant contests and the contests have all gone down to the wire. There has always been some added spice when these two teams meet with both current captains unwilling to take a backward step.
Indulging in verbal volleys with no quarters given and none asked on the field, the India versus Australia series promises to be a cracker of a contest.
There will be a battle of epic proportions with both teams knowing that if they can triumph 4-1 over the other then they will attain the rank of the number one team in ODIs.
The stage is set and before Virat Kohli and Steve Smith walk out for the toss, let’s relive some of the exciting clashes between the two teams in ODIs in India.
