India vs Australia Dream11 Prediction & Preview: 1st ODI
India and Australia will clash against each other in the 1st ODI of the three-match ODI series at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. We will provide IND vs AUS Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
The Indian team is having a great time after the 2019 World Cup. They have not lost even a single Test, ODI, T20I series that they have played after the World Cup and will be very high on confidence coming into this series against one of the top contenders in the world, Australian Team. India played their last ODI series against West Indies, and it was a thrilling contest, but India performed well in all the departments and won the series. Recently they won the T20I series against Srilanka very comfortably even though the 1st match of the series was washed out.
Batting has always been good for the Indian team, but with the return of Jasprit Bumrah to the team after a short gap due to injury, Indian bowling also looks lethal this time. Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur have also performed well in the recent T20I series, and with the experience of Shami, there is nothing to worry about the Indian bowling. Shikhar Dhawan also returns to the ODI squad, and that would add more power to the Indian batting line up. MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya are still not available for the selection.
Last time, Australia played an ODI was in the World Cup semi-final against England, where they had to face the disappointment as they lost the match by 8 wickets. Since then, they haven’t played ODI matches. They have played T20I and Test Series at their home and won all those series. They even retained the Ashes this time.
The Australian team also looks pretty good with players like Aaron Finch and David Warner opening the innings who can be destructive right from the 1st ball. In the middle order, they got some outstanding players like Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Ashton Turner, and Alex Carey, who are in good form, and they got one of the best bowling attacks in the world like Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson. It looks like the contest between India and Australia will be a thrilling one in every match.
Last time these two teams played a bilateral series was before the World Cup, and Australia played brilliantly and defeated the Indian side by 3-2 lead. Indians will be very much eager to win this series and take revenge of their loss in the previous series.
