After their first-ever Test series win Down Under, an upbeat Indian team will now shift its focus to the limited-overs format as they take on Australia in the 1st One-day International (ODI) in Sydney on Saturday. With an eye on the upcoming 2019 World Cup, India will look to fine-tune their preparations for the quadrennial event against a depleted Australian team. With 35 defeats in 48 ODIs against Australia Down Under, Virat Kohli and his team will also look to better India's poor record on Australian soil.
In the absence of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, who have been suspended by the BCCI pending an inquiry after sparking controversy for their "inappropriate" comments on women on a TV show, the team management will have to rejig team's combination for Saturday's clash.
Australian skipper Aaron Finch, on the other hand, announced their playing XI for the first ODI against India with Nathan Lyon being the lone spinner in the team. Veteran Peter Siddle, who last represented Australia in 2010, has also been included in the team for the first match.
