Huge image: India goal collection victory
The Wankhede Stadium might need thrown a curveball in the primary ODI
however neither India nor Australia will fret an excessive amount of over how their batters fared in these seamer-friendly circumstances. Each groups have already certified for the upcoming ODI World Cup and this collection, anyway, is just not a part of the World Cup Tremendous League.
Proper now, it is extra about fine-tuning and discovering the precise combos, and so the caravan strikes from Mumbai on the west coast to Visakhapatnam on the east coast for extra of that.
For India, their common captain Rohit Sharma
shall be again after lacking the primary sport due to household commitments. Meaning Ishan Kishan is prone to sit out. Until India worth his left-handedness and provides him an opportunity within the center order instead of Suryakumar Yadav.
hasn’t had a good time in Take a look at cricket of late, however he confirmed his worth as an ODI No. 5 with a match-winning unbeaten 75 within the first sport. India will even be happy along with his glovework behind the stumps. He took a wonderful diving catch to his proper to dismiss Steven Smith other than making a few one-handed stops down the leg aspect. In opposition to spin too, he was equally spectacular. With Rishabh Pant unlikely to be slot in time for the World Cup, Rahul’s wicketkeeping is an enormous plus.
Australia shall be proud of the returns of Mitchell Marsh
and Glenn Maxwell
within the first ODI. Marsh, coming again after ankle surgical procedure and enjoying this collection as a specialist batter, smashed a 65-ball 81. Maxwell was enjoying his first worldwide match since breaking his leg in November. He may not have contributed a lot with bat or ball, however he did not appear to be in any type of bodily discomfort.

Within the highlight: Suryakumar Yadav and Mitchell Starc
Shreyas Iyer’s absence has allowed India to play Suryakumar Yadav at No. 4. Nonetheless, he has failed to duplicate his T20I success in 50-over cricket. In his final ten ODIs, he has scored solely 110 runs at a median of 13.75. With the ODI World Cup just a little over six months away, is Suryakumar operating out of time to be a critical contender for India’s squad?
On Friday, Mitchell Starc
confirmed why he’s such a drive in ODI cricket. His new-ball spell, throughout which he dismissed Virat Kohli, Suryakumar and Shubman Gill, made Australia favourites to defend 188, earlier than they had been denied by KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja. Given Starc not performs within the IPL – 2015 was his final season – he’ll prefer to acquaint himself as a lot as potential with the Indian circumstances earlier than the World Cup.
Other than Rohit’s return, India may think about bringing in Washington Sundar for Shardul Thakur as spinners have a greater economic system fee (5.64) than quick bowlers (6.15) in Visakhapatnam.
India (possible): 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suryakumar Yadav/Ishan Kishan, 5 KL Rahul (wk), 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Shardul Thakur/Washington Sundar, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Mohammed Shami, 11 Mohammed Siraj
David Warner (elbow harm) and Alex Carey (sickness) missed the primary ODI however there’s a probability that each may play on Sunday. If Warner returns, Australia must reshuffle their batting order. Carey shall be a straight swap for Josh Inglis. They could experiment elsewhere, too, as they’ve mentioned they are going to strive issues forward of the World Cup.
Australia (possible): 1 Mitchell Marsh, 2 Travis Head, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 Marnus Labuschagne, 5 Alex Carey (wk), 6 Cameron Inexperienced, 7 Glenn Maxwell, 8 Marcus Stoinis, 9 Sean Abbott, 10 Mitchell Starc, 11 Adam Zampa
Pitch and circumstances: A shortened sport?
Visakhapatnam has been a high-scoring venue with a median first-innings complete of 295. The final time India performed an ODI right here, in December 2019, they posted 387 for five in opposition to West Indies
with Rohit and Rahul scoring lots of. Climate, although, may play spoilsport as there’s a forecast of scattered showers within the afternoon.
