Australia start India tour in style

Aaron Finch practicing in nets on Sunday

Being a day game, toss will not have much significance, but the captain who wins the toss will most likely bat first.

Having walked onto Chepauk Stadium after Australia had lost 3-52 midway through their innings, Stoinis did exactly what he'd done in Auckland more than seven months earlier; cautiously stemmed the bleeding and then unleashed a breath-taking counter-attack, clearing the rope five times and hitting it on four occasions to score 76 from just 60 balls.

David Warner and Hilton Cartwright opened the batting for the Australians and the former looked in imperious touch after his exemplary performances in the recently concluded tour of Bangladesh.

It was all-rounder Marcus Stoinis and wicket-keeper Matthew Wade who provided the fireworks for Australia in the death-overs.

The introduction of spinners halted the IBPXI's progress as they slipped from 102 for two to 156 for eight before knocks from Akshay Karnewar (40) and Kushang Patel (41 not out) ensured they posted 244 before they were bowled out in 48.2 overs. I've been to three IPLs and for an "A" tour, we've got an Indian coach - S Sriram (spin consultant) - and we're working closely with him.

"But you'd have to talk to someone else who actually makes that decision because I'm not sure".

The joint marketing agreement had to be reworked when Los Angeles agreed to host the 2028 Games, with Paris staging the 2024 Olympics.

The lanky pacer further asserted that it has always been a good cricketing rivalry between both the nations and the fans would definitely see some good, tough cricket. Sriram and I get on well together. "We are different allrounders".

"India are in form".

Head's knock came at nearly run-a-ball while Stoinis was the aggressor among the two as the visitors were nearing the 300-run mark.

A 79-run partnership between Shreevats Goswami and Mayank Agarwal put the Board President's XI chase back on track before the visitors struck again with leg-spinner Adam Zampa getting rid of Agarwal for 42 (47).

Marcus Stoinis scored a power packed 76 runs to power Australia to 347 for 7 against Board President's XI in a practice match being played at Chennai.

Board President's XI's spin duo of Washington Sundar and Rahil Shah held their own amid the carnage, giving away 55 runs in their combined 15 overs, with Washington's figures reading 8-1-23-2. Agar dented the middle and lower order with 4 for 44. "It is also about understanding conditions and what lengths you want".
