Kochi ODI: Rain might play spoilsport at Kochi one-dayer

Heavy rain in Kochi since Thursday night has raised concerns about the fate of the first One-Day International between India and Australia to be played in Kochi on October 17. However, security measures are in full swing, with a 2500 member police force, along with 100 commandoes, having been deployed for ensuring safety. There are many changes to the Indian squad that will see most of the senior players being rested for the three-match series. There is no Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir or Sachin Tendulkar, and in their place, Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay will open the innings. The bowling will be shorn of Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma, which gives an opportunity to the likes of R Ashwin and Vinay Kumar. Australia have followed suit with Ponting left out of their squad along with all-rounder Shane Watson and fast bowler Mitchell Johnson, while Michael Clarke will take over as captain.Indian ODI squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Saurabh Tiwary, R Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel, Vinay Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja, Rohit Sharma.

The hosts need 161 runs more for what now seems an improbable victory.Earlier, in the day's final session, the Indian bowlers put in an inspired display to dismiss Australia cheaply in their second innings.

The visitors made 192 (in 60.5 overs) for an overall lead of 215.

The Indian opener scored a blazing 59 off 54 balls with 10 fours in the final session after Australian wicketkeeper Tim Paine (92) had missed out on a maiden Test hundred. Sehwag equalled the record of scoring a 50 or more in 11 consecutive Tests. West Indies' Viv Richards and Indian Gautam Gambhir are the other batsmen to have achieved the feat.
IND v AUS, Mohali Test, Day 2: India 110 for 2 (Sehwag 59) trail Australia 428 (Watson 126, Paine 92, Ponting 71, Zaheer 5-94) by 318 runs

Mohali Test, day one: Watson hits ton before Zaheer strikes‎

Australia had elected to bat after winning the toss. Australia captain Ricky Ponting got into a verbal spat with India's fast bowler Zaheer Khan after he was run out for 71 by a direct throw by Suresh Raina. As the two got into a heated exchange of words, umpire Billy Bowden rushed in to calmed them down. The incident is likely to be reported by the umpires to the match referee Chris Broad.
