‘India's batting poses big threat’

| | Chennai

India's batting line-up poses a "big threat" and Australia need to score huge runs to counter the hosts during the five-match ODI series beginning on September 17, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis said on Tuesday.

Stoinis on tuesday hammered a 60-ball 76 to guide Australia to a 103-run crushing win over Board President's (BP) XI.

"I think we have to score a lot of runs in this series," he said when asked if scores over 300 would be the norm in the upcoming ODI series."They (India) are batting really well. I think heavy runs, 350 it will be for sure."

Asked who he considers a threat in the India team, Stoinis quipped: "All of them are a big threat. Every single one of them are great players, very good players."

Stoinis, who also grabbed a wicket, said there were a lot of positives for the team.

"Positives with the bat is, the batters made good runs early and in terms of spinners Ashton Agar bowled beautifully. Just understanding the conditions and the lengths one has to bowl," he said.
