With Aaron Finch out with injury, Australia need the experience of Smith and David Warner to rack up the runs, but Kuldeep revealed that India had its plans in place.

After a brisk start by partner Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma failed to continue his dream run at Kolkata as he once again perished to Aussie pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile.
Was looking good in the first ODI till he hit 40 and got out but did not do much in the second ODI.
The Indian vice-captain was caught by Coulter-Nile off his own bowling after attempting to drive a full-delivery on off-stump to be dismissed for seven runs.
Richardson bagged a few scalps in the closing overs as India lost their final wicket off the final ball of the fifty.
The Australian Cricket Team, during the start of the second ODI at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, was seen wearing black armbands to pay homage to former fast bowler Bob Holland, who lost his battle to Brain Cancer at the age of 70.

An FRA spokesperson explained that Ireland does not feature because it is not home to one of the larger clusters of EU Muslims . In 2015, over a quarter (27%) of all respondents reported being harassed due to their ethnic or immigrant background.
At 106-4, the onus increased on Smith, who answered with his 19th half-century off 65 balls in his 100th ODI. In the last ODI, Dhoni had scored a match-winning knock of 79 runs.
In three successive deliveries, Kuldeep (3/54) took the wickets of Mathew Wade, Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins in the 33rd over to emulate the feats of compatriots Chetan Sharma (1987) and Kapil Dev (1991).
Kohli at the other end continued to pick up runs at will and was going along nicely at 92 before coming undone against Coulter-Nile in the most uncharacteristic fashion.
6 - MS Dhoni became the sixth cricketer to play 300 ODIs for India.
Kohli has a history of run-ins with Australia, famously declaring he had no friends in the opposition dressing room after a fiery Test series earlier in the year.
India crossed 200 in the 38th over, but the big blow came just prior.
The Australian captain sought to dispel the notion that his batsmen are unable to tackle the Indian wrist-spinners, attributing the defeat in Chennai to the rain interruption. He faced 107 balls and hit eight fours. Maybe the guys are trying to watch the ball too closely and forgetting about just playing the game. Australia then affected a run-out as the batsman walked back to the dressing room without grounding his bat, but the umpires ruled in Pandya's favor.
