As Australia Tour Of India was scheduled from 14 Jan to Jan 19 for the ODI series of 3 matches. The first ODI “Australia vs India” will take place at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, 1:30 pm local, 8 am GMT.
India will be particularly motivated to get off to a good start at Australia’s first ODI in Mumbai to avenge the rare home defeat they suffered against the same opponent last year.
“We were more motivated to win today because we lost the series in India,” said captain Virat Kohli after the men’s excellent 36-race win in blue against Australia in the 2019 men’s cricket World Cup match at The Oval. He answered whether India’s in-game performance was boosted by memories of the painful loss to the same opponents in the 2015 Sydney semi-final.
India, especially Kohli, had good reason to feel harmed by this defeat in early 2019. It was India’s first home defeat under Kohli’s captain in six series, and it met an underused Australian team that lacked stars like Steve Smith and David Warner and Mitchell Starc. The fact that Australia lost 2-0 before winning the next three games must have been more painful.
Now, 10 months later, India has the opportunity to pay points. It will certainly not be an easy task since, in addition to the troika mentioned above, the key player is also Marnus Labuschagne, who wants to expand his run glow to the ODI format after a record-breaking test summer Back home. It will be interesting to see if Australia presents him with his debut cap at the first ODI in Mumbai, which can be a very hitter-friendly venue.
Both teams start the series in great shape. India has just pushed Sri Lanka aside 2-0 in a T20I series after convincingly winning both the T20I and ODI series against the West Indies. Australia’s limited-overs shape was pretty good too. They each won their five completed T20Is against Sri Lanka and Pakistan in the home season. But they will be fully aware that meeting India in cricket over fifty will be a very different beast.
India’s bowling attack was a bit expensive during the series against the West Indies, but they will hope that the return of a revitalizing Jasprit Bumrah will help solve this problem.
Some Memories Of the Last Match Between “India vs Australia”
The teams last faced each other in the World Cup game at The Oval. India got off to a wonderful start thanks to the openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma who created 127 for the first wicket. Dhawan got a penalty of 117 and Kohli got a brisk 82nd Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni hit a number of borders to get India to 352/5. Warner, Smith, and Carey reached the 1950s, but none were able to turn them into a big one, and Australia was defeated at 316 in the full 50 overs.
Kane Richardson Said:
“India is always the biggest challenge in India and after what happened last year they will be ready for it. So confidence has increased, but the home team is always the favorite. We are the outsiders. “
