India vs Australia 1st ODI: The first match of the ODI series between India and Australia will be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Rohit Sharma will not play the first ODI due to family reasons. In such a situation, Hardik Pandya is going to captain the team. After winning the Test series, the Indian team will now try to win the ODI series. But it will not be easy to beat Australia in ODIs. Let us tell you that in the first ODI, the discussion has started about what will be the Indian Playing XI (India Probable XI).
Will Umran Malik get a chance
This year also India has to play the World Cup at its own home. Australia is a strong team. In such a situation, it is expected that the team management will try to give Umran the experience of playing against a big team. If such an equation is formed, then Umran can become a part of India’s playing XI in the first ODI. This will also be a golden opportunity for Umran to prove himself against a bigger team.
Shardul Thakur or Washington Sundar
Confusion has arisen regarding Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur after Ravindra Jadeja’s entry into the team. India has a great all-rounder in the form of Hardik Pandya. In such a situation, if Jadeja plays the ODI series, then only one of Washington and Shardul can be included in the playing eleven.
Even though KL Rahul’s form is bad but this batsman is one of the best batsman in India. Test and ODI are two different formats, keeping in mind the World Cup, Rahul may get a chance.
Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal
In recent times, Kuldeep has done a great performance. Kuldeep is a mystery spinner, so instead of Chahal, it is expected that Kuldeep will get a chance to play in the playing XI.
India’s probable XI for the first ODI
Ishan Kishan (wk), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya (c), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar/ Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav/ Yuzvendra ChahalUmran Malik/ Mohammed Shami
Australian playing XI
David Warner, Travis Head, Steve Smith (C), Marnus Labuschagne, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, Sean Abbott, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa
Who will be the pitch in Mumbai
There can be a pile of runs in Mumbai. The pitch there is forgiving for batting. In such a situation, it is expected that a big scoring match will be seen in the first ODI. After winning the toss, the team would like to bowl first.
