The three-match ODI series between India and Australia will begin on Friday, September 22 at the IS Bindra PCA Stadium in Mohali. It is going to be a tricky test for Australia who are coming off a disappointing series loss on the South Africa tour. The Kangaroos are on a three-match losing streak and they will definitely look to put an end to it on Friday.
The visitors will be welcoming back their star players who were not part of the South Africa series. The return of form of Marnus Labuschagne must have given the team management a sigh of relief. With Mitchell Starc and captain Pat Cummins returning, the Australian bowling attack will have the fire it was lacking against the Proteas.
On the flip side, India are taking this series as a chance to give their big guns a bit of rest and give match time to some players who are in the World Cup squad. KL Rahul will lead the team as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya have been given some rest and will join the team in the third ODI.
India’s biggest concerns are Ravindra Jadeja’s batting form and the replacement of Axar Patel if he doesn’t get fit till the World Cup. They have added Ravichandran Ashwin and Washington Sunder to the squad as Axar’s possible replacement. They will be ready to make an impact and up their chances of getting selected in the World Cup squad.
