The first match of the three-match ODI series between India and Australia will be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. After the T20 series win over Sri Lanka, Team India will take on a different format and against a stronger opponent. In this high-voltage competition between two strong teams, adventure can reach its full height.
In such a situation, let us tell you which 11 players can Virat bet on for the first one-day?
Rohit Sharma is set to handle one end while there is a tight competition between in-form Lokesh Rahul and veteran Shikhar Dhawan from the other end.
With both the middle order Shikhar and Rahul in the playing eleven, Virat can step down. He said this in the press conference before the match. In this sense, Virat can go with Dhawan in the first one-day and he can come to bat at number three. Rahul can be excluded in the first one-day. At the same time, batting at number four, Shreyas Iyer is almost certain.
Rishabh Pant is certain to take wicketkeeping. Manish Pandey and Ravindra Jadeja can be seen in the role of all-rounder.
Team India can take off with three fast bowlers i.e. Shami, Bumrah and Shardul can be accommodated in this. At the same time, Jadeja can support Kuldeep Yadav as the spinner.
