Dhoni scored a half century in the 1st ODI but has been criticised for consuming too many balls.
The bowling line-up will look to carry on the momentum they had in the first game.
Being 1-0 down it is a do-or-die game for Team India.
India and Australia meet each other frequently in the ODI arena and out of the 128 matches they have played till now, the Australians hold a 73-45 lead.
The Australian Test batting has looked a pale shadow of itself in the last few months and a whole lot of changes are expected in the coming days.
This 2-1 victory for India could not have come at a more suitable time.
It was a series dominated by the big names but there were those who made a mark for themselves and sealed a spot in the team as well.
While India dominated the series, there were some notable performances from Australia as well.
Disappointing is an understatement for these players.
Team India made history by defeating Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1.
