A total of 143 matches have been played between these two sides where Australia have a massive upper hand, they have emerged victorious in 80 ODIs.
India will lock horns with Australia in the first ODI of the ODI Series on the 17th match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. After a very competitive Test series, the two teams will now battle it out in the fifty-over format now, Wankhade Stadium has hosted these two teams in the past and all have gone on to be high-scoring affairs. The last time these two teams met in the ODI format was back in 2020 in Australia where the hosts managed to win that series by a margin of 2-1. India will be up for redemption this time around, and we are all set for three exciting encoiunters ahead of us between the top two teams in the world. Zampa returns to the Australian setup after an impressive outing with New South Wales in the Marsh Cup.
Interestingly, India have lost the last three ODI that they have played here. The last encounter was against Australia in 2020, where India faced a defeat by ten wickets. Shubman Gill will be expected to open the batting alongside Ishan Kishan. Hardik Pandya will lead the India side and Steve Smith will lead the Australian unit. It will be interesting to see if India will go with one or two spinner, the pitch at the Wankahde tends to favour the fast bowlers more than the spinners. A total of 143 matches have been played between these two sides where Australia have a massive upper hand, they have emerged victorious in 80 ODIs. On the other hand, India have won on 53 occasions.
