India vs Australia 2017: Combined ODI XI
The detractors might never be silenced, but MS Dhoni has brought back shades of his old form with a few superb knocks down the order in the last few months. With the complete backing of the team management in the lead-up to the 2019 World Cup, a freer Dhoni will be itching to continue the run-flow against the Aussies. His impeccable work behind the stumps doesn’t even need a mention.
Back to the country where he achieved widespread recognition during IPL 2013, a much wiser and experienced Glenn Maxwell still needs to get one big knock in the 50-over format. His rapid rate of scoring has no competition when he is at his bludgeoning best, but the temperament of the 28-year-old, a veteran of 77 ODIs, still needs mending during pressure situations. His off-spin is an added benefit.
