India have rested Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for the first two ODIs and it will be a perfect opportunity for the youngsters once again to show their mettle against a full-strength Australian side.
Meanwhile, seniors, including the skipper Pat Cummins and Steve Smith have returned for Australia. The Kangaroos will be happy as this series will help them in getting accustomed to the Indian conditions ahead of the ODI World Cup 2023.
It is a vital series for India and Australia as both sides have their own set of issues. While Men in Blue are looking to find their best middle-order and spin-bowling combination, Australia are also trying to find their best playing XI after an injury to Travis Head.
India – W L W W W
Australia – L L L W W
It is a perfect batting track and a batting paradise. The wicket has bounce and pace and the batters could play their shots through the line. Furthermore, the outfield is lightning-quick.

India will be without their two premier batters and their most potent spinner in this game. While the players in the squad have enough quality to take on the Aussies, it will still be an uphill battle to defeat them. At the same time, Australia are back to their full strength and having multiple all-rounders is their biggest strength. As per our prediction, Australia should win this game.
