Finally, the sweet taste of victory


Australia have won the toss and will be batting first in the second Twenty20 match at Melbourne. They've made three changes to the team with Aaron Finch, Shaun March and Clint McKay coming into the team.

But India, on the other hand, have once again not changed too much. The lack of imagination is staggering. It would have been a good time to try out some new players but no game for Irfan and the openers -- Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag, despite a bad run, are staying put.

The Australian skipper George Bailey has already said that the team is looking to get the best combination going before the T20 World Cup later this year.

Dhoni has almost ruled out coming up the order as he believes that the youngsters deserve a chance to bat before him. No harm there but surely some pressure on Gambhir and Sehwag could have helped things.

India playing XI: Sehwag, Gambhir, Virat, Rohit, Raina, Dhoni (c,wk), Jadeja, Ashwin, Rahul, Vinay, Praveen.

Australia playing XI: Warner, Finch, S Marsh, D Hussey, G Bailey (c) Wade (wk), M Marsh, Brett, Hogg, McKay, Doherty
