Australia vs India - Highlights & Stats

Rohit Sharma was recently part of two of the four Test matches that were played before the ODI series

Rohit Sharma was recently part of two of the four Test matches that were played before the ODI series

Usman Khawaja scored 59 during his first ODI in nearly two years while Peter Handscomb, playing his first ODI in 15 months, top-scored with 73 after Aaron Finch opted to bat.

India will be aiming to start strongly after sealing a win in the Test series. "India in particular has quality batsmen and their bowlers have also learnt the art of bowling in test cricket", he said.

The idea is to make the most out of this series and get the balance right.

Apart from the 1985 World Championship and 2008 tri-series wins, they have lost 35 out of 48 ODIs played against Australia on their home soil.

Sony Sports Network is the official broadcaster of India-Australia ODI 2019 Series in India.

Australia managed to earn just two victories in 2018 in this format.

With the two openers, and Kohli at number three, the remaining batting line-up picks itself.

Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff are two quicks Australia have gone selected. In this interim, Rayudu scored 392 runs in 11 ODIs in the Asia Cup and against West Indies, at an average of 56, including a hundred and three half-centuries.

The veteran could not opt for a review as it was unsuccessfully used up by Ambati Rayudu, breaking a 141-run partnership with Rohit Sharma at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Both have been in good form. While India has been on the lookout to sort their middle order for sometime now, Dhoni's lack of power hitting lower down has only increased their need to find the right personnel in the middle.

Aussie bowlers could find it hard to stop Indian batsmen from making inroads.

It remains to be seen how ace spinner Nathan Lyon comes up. Australia's Powerplay total was a very retro 2 for 41 which led to a further period of cautious batting from Khawaja and Marsh as they attempted to lay a platform rather than take the innings by the scruff of the neck.

The Aussie bowling attack do not possess the usual threat.

He and Handscomb began to put the foot down with a string of fours, but Marsh came unstuck in the 38th over when he tried to loft Kuldeep down the ground and holed out to Mohammed Shami at long-on for 54. "Till then it was just bowlers dominating and hitting their lengths because we lost 3 wickets and we were under pressure to build the partnership so obviously that point we only decided that we have got to take the game forward and once we got the 100-run partnership the mindset changed and we chose to kick on and get 6-plus an over".

Fact: When and where to watch the first ODI? .

The Australians made 288 for five off their 50 overs after winning the toss and restricted India to 254 for nine.
