With the loss, India also conceded a 0-1 lead to Australia in the three-match series. However, the hosts will have a chance to bounce back in second ODI in Rajkot.In the series opener, Australia captain Aaron Finch and David Warner hit brilliant centuries to forge the highest Australian partnership against India as they chased down 256 runs with 12.2 overs to spare.Asked to bat, India made a slow start to their innings and lost Rohit Sharma early. Virat Kohli's idea to step down the order also did not pay off as he was dismissed for 16 runs by Adam Zampa. At a moment, India did not look like crossing the 250-run mark, but some resilience on top of the order by Shikhar Dhawan (74) and important cameos by Rishabh Pant (28) and Ravindra Jadeja (25), saw them put up 255 runs on board.In the second ODI, Virat Kohli might alter the playing XI, in search of a series-saving victory.Read More: Australia tour of India, 2020 schedule, team player,live scores

From various major sporting disciplines before the nationwide lockdown."Nobody really says that when I go to bat, the first 5 to 10 deliveries my heart rate is elevated, I feel pressure, I'm a little scared because that's what everyone feels, how do you handle that? " Note the captain of the winning World Cup team. "It's a small problem, but we often hesitate to talk to a coach about it, so the relationship between a player and a coach is very important for any sport," said Dhoni, who did not participate in an international match. After the start of the semi-final of the Indian World Cup last July. Stressing the importance of the mental fitness trainer, Dhoni said: "The mental fitness trainer should not be the one who comes for 15 days, because when you come for 15 days, you only share the experience.
