BCCI Home season’s India vs Australia 3 ODI series has commenced on 14th January
After a roaring victory over Sri Lanka in a 3 T20I series, India has an ODI series comprising of 3 matches against Australia. The series began with the first match on 14th January and the second and third matches scheduled on the 17th and 19th January. All the matches will be streamed live around the world on major networks and streaming services.
The first match between India and Australia happened in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The match began at 1:30 PM IST with India batting first. Shikhar Dhawan and Lokesh Rahul stood as the highest scorers in the match with 74 and 47 runs each. India put forth a target of 255 runs which Australia chased without even losing a wicket. Australian batsmen David Warner (128) and Aaron Finch (110) each scored centuries, thus easily chasing the target.
India was on a roll with its recent victories against teams like South Africa, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and West Indies. The team is in great shape and took on all the teams with great confidence. With its 10-wicket loss against Australia, which is the first time in history, the confidence might have shaken a little but the team might spring back to its strength in the second match.
Australian team too, was on a victory streak as it had played against England, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and New Zealand. The team is in the best shape it can be and would likely attempt to continue its victories against India too. The second and third ODIs are scheduled for the 17th and 19th of January at 01:30 PM IST. Since the teams are currently stronger than any other in the world, the matches will be an edge of the seat action.
Indian team comprises of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (C), Ravindra Jadeja, Shikhar Dhawan, Mohammad Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Shaardul Thakur, Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedhar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Navdeep Saini, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, and Shivam Dube.
