India vs Australia 1st ODI LIVE: Know here when to watch the first ODI between India and Australia.
India vs Australia 1st ODI LIVE: India will look to forget their close defeats in both the matches of the T20 series and start the ODI series against Australia on a positive note. The first match of the 5-match series will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Saturday.
The series is India’s last chance to settle selection issues before the World Cup, starting in May in England. The selectors would be watching all the matches closely before they pick a strong squad for the mega event. Captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri are expected to continue with a few experiments to look at the best possible combination.
“Every team will look to fine-tune whatever they need to before the mega event, and we will continue to do that in the ODI series as, but we still would like to win to win every match we play,” skipper Kohli was quoted as saying after the defeat in the second T20 against the Aussies.
The series will be a test for four players Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Siddarth Kaul and Vijay Shankar, who will be fighting for two available slots in the World Cup bound squad. Another man who will keenly watch the development is Dinesh Karthik who many believe could still make the cut.
