India and Australia now head to the all-important ODI series. Australia managed to win both the T20Is before this but the ODI series is what everyone would keep a keen eye on. Before the World Cup, this will be an opportunity for both the teams to fill in the empty slots for the mega event to be held in England and Wales. Keep reading to find out the India v Australia 1st ODI Match Prediction.
The visitors will be high in confidence after their victory in the T20I series. However, there are bigger things at stake. Last time, they met India at home, they ended up losing 2-1. They would take the opportunity to test themselves against one of the tournament favorites. But it’s going to be tougher in the 50-over format as India has more or less the full-strength squad unlike in the T20Is.
On the other hand, India would look to finalize few of the remaining slots. Most of the players have already sealed their berth. This is their last international assignment before the World Cup. Hence, there could be a few experiments in the playing XI to give an opportunity to the probable players for the slots up for grabs.
