The Test series is now over and Indian team is ready to slay the kangaroos in the upcoming ODI that is scheduled to start from 12th of January. After the historic win in the test series, India will look forward to repeating to repeat the same in the upcoming three-match ODI series. Both teams have made slight changes in their respective playing 11 and are prepared to face each other in the Sydney Cricket ground. Indian Team which is full of confidence after the historic victory in the test series whereas the Australian squad for ODI seems weak and less experienced.

Though the Australian squad looks inexperienced Indian team has a very bad record while playing in Australia. Talking about numbers India has played 48 ODIs in Australian lands and they have been victorious in only 11. This is the second Bilateral series India is playing in Australia, first, one which was in 2016 also resulted badly for India and they lost it by a large margin of 4-1. Beside this Bilateral Series, India has played 9 Multinational ODI series India has played 9 Multinational series in Australia and they managed to win only two whereas their current rival Australia has won the rest 7.

This was the history but considering the current scenario Australian team’s performance is very low. In the 13 ODI, the Kangaroos have played in 2018 they managed to win only 2 and also in the test series the absence of David Warner and the guidance of Steve Smith was seen. For the ODI both of the teams have dropped some players. Talking about the Indian squad MS Dhoni is back in the team and the world knows what this player is capable of. Jasprit Bumrah has been given rest and Mohammad Siraj has been called upon. Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Shami are back.


Full Squad: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami.

Australian squad has also few changes and batsman Usman Khawaja, medium pacer Peter Siddle and off-spinner Nathan Lyon. Lyon who last played an ODI in June 2018 and Khwaja is back after 2 years. It is surprising to see Peter Siddle whose last appearance in ODI was in late 2010. Mitch Marsh and Peter Handscomb are also included. Overall the Australian squad does not consist of a much-experienced player and it will be worth watching when these two teams face each other in the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Full Squad: Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitch Marsh, Alex Carey, Jhye Richardson, Billy Stanlake, Jason Behrendorff, Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon, Adam Zampa.
