India vs Australia 1st ODI Live Streaming
India is in top form having washed out Sri Lanka at home in all the formats of the game in their last international assignment. Despite all the efforts put in by the Sri Lankans, Indians managed to clinch victories game after game. Now they are faced with an even bigger challenge at home with Australia visiting them for the 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is. Australia, on the other hand, are coming after a mixed run in their little stint against Bangladesh where they lost the 1st Test and then managed to win the second one somehow. Now it’s going to be the battle of equals as the two sides meet in Chennai for the India vs Australia 1st ODI. So, let’s see who comes on top.
India will be relying on Rohit and Kohli for most part as they have been their most reliable batsmen in recent times. Rohit’s last 5 international outings saw him scoring a couple of tons and a well-played half century. However, all of them came against Sri Lanka and now he will have to show some class with the bat against a seasoned bowling line up. As for Indian captain Virat Kohli, his last 3 international scores are 82, 110 and 131 – most recent first. So, this shows exactly what kind of form these two maestros are experiencing and a lot will depend on how they play against Australia. In the middle, they have Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya who all can score runs at a brisk pace. Dhoni also impressed a lot in the recent outings against Sri Lanka where he proved himself in crunch situations.
India are expected to rely heavily on spin against a batting line that finds it a bit harder to tackle spin on sub-continent wickets. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will be their front line spinners against Australia in the first game. Bumrah and Kumar will lead the attack as they have been doing it for quite some time now.
For Australia, it will be Warner, Smith, Head and Maxwell to play the key role in the batting department. Warner, as we all know, has maintained some great reputation at the top for quite some time now. Though he failed to score any big runs in his recent ODI outings but a couple of hundreds are there to back him in recent Tests against Bangladesh. Now, it will be a test for him as to how he plays India’s ferocious spin bowling attack on their home ground. Smith has also been the Mr. dependable for them of late. And, he is probably the best player of spin in the current Australian batting line up. If he gets going then it will surely be curtains for the Indians and they will have to devise some other plans. Mathew Wade, Stoinis and Maxwell are also there in the middle order for Australia.
In the bowling department, Australia’s strength will be Coulter-Nile, Faulkner and Cummins. All of them have been in wicket-taking form lately and can play a crucial part. Young leggie, Adam Zampa, will also be in the spotlight and can test the temperament of the Indian batsmen.
