Sydney: The first match of the India-Australia ODI series will be played on Friday from 9.10 am at the Sydney Cricket Stadium. Without opener Rohit Sharma, India will have no shortage of confidence. The last time India played in Australia was in the ODI series in 2018–19. This is the first ODI played by the Indian cricket team since the onset of the Kovid epidemic.
India last played an ODI series against New Zealand last February. They lost 3–0 that day. Australia, meanwhile, went on to win the series 2–1 against England. Teams for Tests, ODIs and Twenty20s are considered balanced. . Sydney has a pitch that traditionally supports batsmen. Pace bowlers and spinners have possibilities. Malayalee player Sanju Samson is in the team but is unlikely to play.
India, Probable XI – Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli. Shreyas Iyer, K.L. Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Yusvendra Chehal, Mohammad Shami and Jaspreet Bumra.
