1st ODI against Australia today
At the time of the test series Australia’s captain, who was a regular and leading quick bowler Pat Cummins had gone home because of the death of his mother. In the absence of Cummins, Steve Smith captained Australia in the third and fourth tests. Australia’s morale has been lifted with the arrival of white ball experts Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, Sean Abbott, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa, Josh Inglis, and Ashton Agar. Australia is expected to be a harder task when playing ODI cricket than the test series. It is the ODI cricket team will not face any spin danger and the Australian ODI experts will breathe an exhale of relief. India will play the opening ODI without their captain Rohit Sharma, who cannot take part in the first ODI because of family obligations. If he is not available, vice-captain Hardik Pandya will take over the captain’s role.
These players from India will be bad news for Kangaroos.
The hosts experienced an enormous setback, even before middle-order cricketer Shreyas Iyer was forced out of the match due to a back problem. In the absence of speed bowlers Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj will be in charge of speed bowling. Alongside him, the young quick bowlers Umran Malik, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, and the skipper Hardik are set to give the selection committee an opportunity to review the speed bowling department. In the batting section, Lokesh Rahul will get another chance to secure his spot on the World Cup team.
KL Rahul was not able to be in the Test squad.
However, Shubman Gill was in great form during the previous ODI series played against New Zealand. Gill scored an unbeaten century in the opening match, and 100 in the third game. Gill also scored his century during the fourth Test at Ahmedabad. The Test was a success as superstar batsman Virat Kohli returned to form with a stunning 186-run run. With the addition of ODI specialist Suryakumar Yadav, all-rounder Hardik Pandya, and Shardul Thakur India hopes to be better than Australia. The ODI series will offer each team an opportunity to test their various combinations so that their preparations for this year’s World Cup can be strengthened.
