Virat Kohli who won the toss for India has decided to bat first. For India, Karun Nair has found his place in the playing eleven, while Jayant Yadav who had a poor outing in Pune is sitting in the bench. Abhinav Mukund is opening the innings for the Indian team with K L Rahul.

India has already lost their first wicket, as Mitchell Starc showed Abhinav Mukund the way to the pavilion. The hosts have now scored 30 runs with the loss of one wicket. K L Rahul (25) and Cheteshwar Pujara (3) are in the crease for the hosts.

On the other hand, Australia will stick on to the same eleven which played the first game, as Steven Smith does not want to make any change in the winning combination.

Pitch conditions

As expected, the pitch at Bangalore is flat, and it will be a perfect paradise for batsmen. From the third day, cracks may develop on the surface, and it will favor the spinners for sure.
