India vs Australia: Finch calls Warner 'tired', fans ask 'tired of losing?'

On Sunday, India rode on Hardik Pandya's all-round brilliance to thrash Australia in a rain-truncated opener of the five-match ODI series at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Now, rain has followed the teams to Kolkata, from Chennai.

With the ground at Eden Gardens under cover for two days, Tuesday's training sessions were cancelled.

"Doubt we will be out on the ground today", posted Aussie vice-captain David Warner on his official social network handle with a photo of Eden Gardens under cover.

There was a spell on Monday that resulted in the pitch being under covers in the afternoon and another on Tuesday morning, forcing the groundstaff to cover the entire outfield. But Cricket Association of Bengal's (CAB) officials have expressed confidence that they will lay out a good playing surface.

Following heavy rains in the Bengal's capital city on September 18, East Zone curator Ashish Bhowmick has said the pitch will be on the slower side.

Termote said the wreck would be "nearly impossible" to refloat and would therefore be "considered a sea grave for the sailors". The German vessel would have been deployed by the forces of Wilhelm II against the Royal Navy and British merchant ships.

"The weather will be a factor". The met department has predicted a possibility of more rain in the coming days. The ball in that case would come on to the bat at a slower pace for obvious reasons.

After guiding India to safety with a career-best 83 off 66 balls, the 23-year-old Pandya starred with the ball, picking the key wickets of Australia skipper Steve Smith (1) and Travis Head (5) to enable the hosts go 1-0 up in the series. "We all know how tricky the weather is", Bhowmick was quoted as saying by "The Telegraph".

Sujan Mukherjee, the chief curator at Eden Gardens, has insisted that a sporting surface benefiting both batsmen and bowlers will be provided.

Since the pitch was re-laid ahead of the 2016-17 season, Eden Gardens has offered increased help for fast bowlers.

The Steve Smith-led Australian team has reached Kolkata for the second One-day global of the series and it seems that their swashbuckling opener David Warner is planning an outing in the City of Joy.
