Hello and Welcome to our preview for Australia vs India ODI match. We are covering AUS vs IND Dream11 team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the first ODI match. The match is to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney.
India clinched the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and won their first-ever Test series in Australia by 2-1. Even in the ODIs, India will start as favorites. The home team has struggled to register wins in the ODIs but will be hoping to break the streak.
After England, India is the most dominating ODI side in world cricket currently. The top three – Shikhar, Rohit and Virat – is in splendid form and will again be in the highlight. Both Rohit and Virat already average over 50 in Australia. The bowling will miss Bumrah but the Indians should make up for him.
Australia has won only three out of their last 21 ODIs. They were recently trounced at home by South Africa and England. After the Test loss, they will find it even more difficult to mount a comeback. Australia has the players but will they be able to come together and beat India, remains to be seen.

They have announced their playing XI for this match.
Captain Finch and wicketkeeper Alex Carey will be opening the innings.
Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb occupy the middle order.
Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell will be the big-hitters. They will be bowling as well.
Nathan Lyon will be the primary spinner. Maxwell will support him if needed.
Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff form the pace attack.
Both KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya have been suspended and will not take part in the first ODI at least.
India’s batting order is more or less sorted. Rohit-Dhawan-Virat is set in stone. Ambati Rayudu has been prolific at number four. Kedar Jadhav provides a few overs of spin and MS Dhoni bats at number five.
Without Hardik Pandya, India can’t risk playing both Kuldeep and Chahal. So Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja are likely to be India’s two spinners.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the pace bowling in absence of Bumrah (rested). Mohammad Shami and Khaleel Ahmed should complete the playing XI.
Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey (wk), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Nathan Lyon, Jhye Richardson, Peter Siddle, Jason Behrendorff
Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed
Captain and Vc choices: V Kohli, Rohit Sharma, S Dhawan, A Finch, S Marsh, M Stoinis, K Yadav.
