KL Rahul, who returned from a thigh injury during the Asia Cup 2023, will be back leading the Indian cricket team as they begin their three-match ODI series against Australia with the first game in Mohali on Friday. India are on a high, having won the Asia Cup 2023 title last week and also having won 4 out of the last five ODI games comprehensively.
Australia, on the other hand, have lost three successive ODI games to South Africa to lose the series 2-3 last week after whitewashing the same opponents in the T20I series. Both sides will witness plenty of changes from their last ODI matches.
India have decided to rest the likes of regular skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and all-rounder Hardik Pandya for the first two ODI matches. With Rahul leading the side, Shreyas Iyer could play his first game after being laid low by back spasms in the Asia Cup 2023.
Off spinners Washington Sundar and Ravichandran Ashwin will be auditioning for an all-rounder’s berth should left-arm spinner Axar Patel fail to recover from injury. World No. 1 ODI bowler Mohammed Siraj could be given rest as well after his heroics against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 final.
