After more than nine months break due to the COVID-19 outbreak, India will finally resume its international cricket. The IPL 2020 in the UAE involved all of their players. But their ace opener Rohit Sharma, who was rested due to injury to the hamstring, will be missed. Virat Kohli will play a key role and must lead from the front, while Shikhar Dhawan and Jasprit Bumrah will also play a key role in their success.
Australia is as famous in this series as they are almost unbeatable at home. India had defeated them 2-1 during their 2018-19 tour and the hosts will be keen to avenge that defeat. Along with Steve Smith, David Warner and Aaron Finch will be essential for them while Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are expected to lead on the bowling front. Expect this to be a game cracker at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
In the morning, clouds will hover at the Sydney Cricket Ground as there is also a very slight chance of shower. But it is expected that the sun will come out by 1 pm, around 90 minutes before the match, and then the conditions for the cricket game to take place with the temperature hovering in the mid-20s will be excellent.
The pitch at Sydney Cricket Ground is known to be a beauty of batting with some assistants for the spinners as the game progresses. For series opener scores close to 280-300, some similar sets are expected to turn out to be equal. Both teams will likely bat first if they won the toss.
Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey (wk), David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa
Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini/Shardul Thakur
India vs Australia, 1st ODI Dream 11:
Aaron Finch (c), KL Rahul (wk), David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Marcus Stoinis, Hardik Pandya, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
It’s a difficult match to predict, with outstanding talents on both sides. After a lengthy moment, both teams will play, and the fans will be excited to see them playing in their national jerseys after such a long wait. India has their A1 squad with them but Rohit Sharma, who plays like a weapon against Australia, will miss the opener. MS Dhoni is the player who will mostly be missed, he has retired, and the middle order of the team will be weakened. Australia has an outstanding top order and would expect to get Maxwell in this game with Stoinis to get some nice runs on the board. Both teams’ bowling is fair, and no one has been left out. It’s going to be a great game to watch, and the Indian team will most likely be the winner. Let’s bet on BAJI to enjoy the thrill of this long-waited cricket game!
