India vs Australia 1st Match Preview ODIs 2023
Team India does not take Australia lightly and this is one of the main reasons why they have chosen their best players for this three-match ODI series. Rohit Sharma will lead Team India in this series. According to reports in media, Rohit sharma requested to the BCCI not to consider him for the first ODI due to personal reasons reasons. In his absence of Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya will lead the Team.
KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan are also part of the ODI team and we believe KL Rahul has a chance in the final eleven of this match. Virat Kohli and Suyakumar Yadav will be India’s top hitters. Virat Kohli is in form and has scored a century in the Test series. Scoring a Test hundred against Australia is a huge achievement and should boost King Kohli’s confidence.
Hardik Pandya and Washington Sundar are all-rounders in India’s team. Hardik Pandya is expected to perform well in this series as the management of the Indian team sees him as the future captain of the Indian team after the ODI World Cup.
Australia performed well in the test series but lost and now plays India in the three-match ODI series. Steve Smith will lead the team in the absence of Pat Cummins. Don’t forget he played 139 ODI games for Australia. He scored 4,917 runs and also took 28 wickets.
David Warner is still not fit and may be missing the first ODI. Some of the best all-rounders like Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, and Marcus Stoinis are part of the Australian ODI team.
