The much-awaited ODI series between India and Australia gets underway today (September 22) in Mohali. The three-match series is being looked at as a pre-cursor to the upcoming World Cup in India. The two sides are also set to face each other in their first match of the mega event on October 8.
However, prior to that, they will be looking to have an advantage over each other in this ODI series. While India have rested key players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya among others for the first two matches with KL Rahul set to lead, Australia will miss Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc for the series opener. Nevertheless, expect this series to be high-octane with both teams keeping an eye on the bigger prize.
