India and Australia will lock horns in the first of the three-match ODI series starting from September 22. The series opener is set to be played in Mohali for the first time in four years. This is also an important series for both sides in terms of fine-tuning their combination for the upcoming World Cup scheduled to start from October 5.

While the two teams will face each other in their tournament opener on October 8 in Chennai, this series is a perfect dress rehearsal. However, the hosts have decided to rest a few of their senior players in trying to keep them fresh for the mega event. Moreover, Australia will see their key players returning from injuries even as Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell remain unavailable for the first ODI.

Mohali is hosting an ODI for the first time in four years. The pitch is known to be brilliant for batting over the years but longer boundary dimensions make six-hitting tough for the players. The team winning the toss is likely to opt to bowl first.
