The first match of the ODI series between India and Australia will be played on Friday. If the Indian cricket team returns to international cricket against a veteran like Australia, then they will miss their ‘hitman’ Rohit Sharma in the first one-day cricket match on Friday. Mayank Agrawal is expected to open Shikhar Dhawan in the team.
Both teams are arrogant
The team, which has been away from international cricket for a long time due to the Corona epidemic, now faces a tough race like Australia, which will not be easy to beat on its soil. The Indian team will be seen in the Navy Blue Jersey of the 1992 World Cup. Those who believe in superstitions will not call it a good sign as India finished seventh among nine teams in that tournament. However, past performance in cricket does not matter. In Australia, the focus will be on how the team combination becomes perfect in Rohit’s absence.

Who will start the innings
Mayank Agarwal will start the innings with Shikhar Dhawan or it will not be easy to cope with the balls of Shubman Gill, Mitchell Starc or Pat Cummins. The Indian batsmen are going to face the best fast attack while Australia also have a skilled spinner in the form of Adam Jampa who has troubled Kohli many times. In the presence of Steve Smith, run-machine David Warner and rising star Marnus Labushane, the Indians will have to do their best to beat Australia on their side.
Here is the probable playing eleven
Australia- Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steve Smith, Maranus Labuschen, Marcus Stonis, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa
India- Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (captain), Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wicket keeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Navdeep Saini, Mohammad Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jaspreet Bumrah.
