IND Vs AUS 1st ODI Live Updates
Team India will begin the three-match ODI series against former world champions Australia with the first ODI at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Friday (March 17). Both the sides will be led by stand-in captains – Hardik Pandya for India and Steve Smith for Australia – with regular skippers Rohit Sharma and Pat Cummins missing due to different reasons. Can Team India strike the first blow in the ODI series today?
Skipper Rohit Sharma is expected to return for the second ODI but Smith will be in charge of the Australians for the entire series as Cummins has chosen to remain at home after the death of his mother last week. India will also miss the services of Shreyas Iyer, who has been ruled out of the ODI series due to back injury.
The weather forecast for the first ODI in Mumbai is in favour of cricket fans. The conditions are apt for a cricket match, with humidity expected to be 46 percent. The cloud cover is five percent and the temperature is likely to dip from 33 degrees Celsius as the match progresses.
Team India are without their regular skipper Rohit Sharma for the first ODI, however, stand-in captain Hardik Pandya has been quite impressive as a leader. Similarly, Steve Smith is set to lead the Aussies after regular skipper Pat Cummins headed back home owing to family reasons. Both sides have produced scintillating matches across all formats and the forthcoming ODI series will be no less.
