1st ODI preview
India will be looking at avenging the rare home series defeat at the hands of Australia last year. The three-match series is being billed as a battle among equals. Going into the match, India clearly has the upper hand here. It has won 10 of the last 15 ODIs between the two teams. But beating an in-form Australia side boasting the likes of Steve Smith and David Warner will be anything but a walk in the park.
The squads for the first match are as follows.
India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (w), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Yuzvendra Chahal.
Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (w), D Arcy Short, Ashton Turner, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar, Peter Handscomb.
