About the Match

The brilliantly gripping and methodically entertaining India vs Australia test series has come to end. India has won a historic first test series in Australia and can go into the India vs Australia ODI series full of assurance. If India manages to win or even draw this three match ODI series than India would have left Australia shres unbeatable. The chances of this experience also seem to be quite good. India is the most successful ODI side in the world and has been for rather some time now. They have won 14 out of their 20 matches in 2018, a win percentage of 75% which is more than  any other side.

Match Preview


India has decided to rest Jasprit Bumrah from the ODI series and has brought in Mohammad Siraj as a replacement. Unlike Australia, though, we have a very good idea of what the playing eleven will be for India going into the Sydney ODI. India and Virat Kohli have publicly started that the time to experiment with the ODI side is over and that the first choice players for the World CUP 2019 will be the ones to play as many matches as possible. The side for the Asia cup and then the West Indies ODIs gave us a good indication of what that side is. The top three for India pick themselves. Rohit , Dhawan and kohli are three of the best ODI batsmen in the world. They have done the Bulk of the run scoring for India in the past and will pose the biggest threat to Australia once again. The four bowlers for India are going to be Khallel Ahmed, Bhuvaneshwer Kumar, Muhammad Shami and Kuldeep Yadav. Mohammad Siraj cold get a look in place of Shami but we think India will start with the experienced campaigner in Sydney.


The require of success that the Australian side has been having over the last year or so is really starting to draw a lot of public analysis and the number of changes made by the selectors shows that they are feeling the stress. It is difficult to umpire what the Australian playing eleven will be for the first ODI but we can make some learned guesses having a look at the squad. Aaron Finch is the captain and is going to be opening the batting. We think Australia is likely to go with Marcus Stoinis are the other opener. This is a position in which he has had achievement for Australiin a before and been the most destructive for his BBL side. There does not seem to be any other person in the squad that can open the batting for  Australia except for maybe Usman Khawaja or Alex Carey but we did not think they will go that way. Khawaja is likely to bat at 3, followed by Handscomb, Maxwell, Carey and Mitchell Marsh. Carey and Stoinis could really swap places in the batting order but Alex Carey has had success batting in the lower order for Australia already. The bowling lineup is attractive strong for Australia as well. We think Jhye Richardson, Stanlake, Behrendorff, and Zampa are likely to get the jiggle for the first match. This would mean leaving out Nathan Lyon and Peter Siddle, both of whom are extremely good bowlers and should get a look wherever along the line.

Toss prediction

The side winning the toss is likely to want bowl second

Pitch and conditions

The weather is probable to be clear on the day of the match even however there is some rain around in Sydney. The pitch is going to be a little slow and should help the spinners while the short boundaries allow for a lot of runs to be scored as well.
