Hardik Pandya is in good form and he performed well in the most recent matches he played. He also has a good record while playing against Australia in home conditions. We think that Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, and KL Rahul will prove the highest run-scorers from team India in this series. India also had picked the best bowlers for this three matches series. Mohammed Siraj will lead the bowling unit of team India with Mohammad Shami. He is ranked as the number one bowler in ICC Men’s ODI bowling ranking. He also has a good record while he plays in India. Some other best bowlers of 50 overs cricket like Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umran Malik, and Shardul Thakur are also part of the bowling squad of team India. They also picked Jaydev Unadkat due to his best performance in domestic cricket but we don’t think that he will get a chance in the final playing eleven in this series. Umran Malik is a rising speed star of India and we are hoping that he will also get a chance in one or two matches of this series. Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel are also available to help the main bowlers of team India. This series is going to be very interesting as both teams are almost equal in strength.
Australia performed well in the test series but lost it and now will play against India in the ODI series of three matches. Steven Smith had been appointed as the captain of the Australia ODI team for the first time in his career. Remember that he had played 139 ODI matches for Australia. He had scored 4917 runs and also had picked 28 wickets. We think that he will open the batting inning of Australia with David Warner. David Warner is another experienced batsman in the squad of Australia. He had scored 6007 runs in 139 ODI matches. He had played a lot of cricket in India and we are sure that he will prove the highest run-scorer from their side in this series. Some best batting all-rounders like Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, and Marcus Stoinis are part of the ODI squad of Australia.
Glenn Maxwell is an experienced player in Australia and he can handle the middle batting order. His role will be very crucial in the middle and lower overs. Alex Carey and Josh Inglis are wicketkeeper batsmen in the squad of Australia. The bowling unit of Australia is also strong and experienced. Mitchell Starc will be handling the bowling unit with Adam Zampa and Nathan Ellis. We are sure that these three bowlers will be part of the final playing eleven of this match. Cameron Green, Ashton Agar, and Sean Abbott are also part of the bowling squad of Australia. Remember that Australia had won its previous six ODI matches in a row which they played against England and New Zealand. India is a strong opponent and but we are sure that Australia is capable to give a tough time on the home side. We think that Australia will shuffle its final playing eleven in this series to get the best combination for the upcoming ODI World Cup. This series is also very important for Australia as they have a chance to get some awareness of the conditions where they have to play in the World Cup.
