Team India will begin a three-match ODI series against Australia with the first game at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali on Friday. This will be the final preparation series for both the sides before they head into the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 next month.
KL Rahul will be leading the Indian side in the absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma, with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma rested as well. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be making a comeback into the ODI side after a gap of over a year.
Shreyas Iyer, who made a comeback in Asia Cup 2023, but was laid low by back spasms after the first couple of matches in Sri Lanka is also expected to return to the Indian middle-order for the match. Australia, on the other hand, will have their skipper and pace bowler Pat Cummins back in charge after missing the South Africa limited-overs series.
Also returning to the Aussie side is former skipper Steve Smith. But Australia will miss the services of pacer Mitchell Starc and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell who are yet to recover from injuries.
