India Vs Australia Odi Match Cricket Betting Tips Info
t hasn't been the ideal build-up for both teams leading into the Chennai ODI. A late injury for Axar Patel resulted in a call-up to the 'rested' Ravindra Jadeja while the visitors will be without prolific opener, Aaron Finch - forcing them to call upon Peter Handscomb in a last minute switch. That will also mean David Warner will have a new partner today and it might well be Hilton Cartwright with Steve Smith pretty much confirming that Travis Head will bat at four.
12:30 IST: Barely six months after the two teams were engrossed in a thrilling 4-Test series, the Australians are back to India to complete the limited-overs version of the tour. Over the next four weeks, the two teams are set to feature in 5 One Day Internationals (ODI) and 3 Twenty20 internationals, across the length and breadth of the nation. It all starts here at the M Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, as India's 23-match home season gets underway with the first ODI.

And the Indian home season starts. Virat Kohli and his men get down to business of continuing their enviable streak after a brief Sri Lankan intermission - a home stretch that involved making visitors crash and burn all through a Test series, and then administer the coup de grace in limited-overs cricket.
But Australia are different. They aren't the sort of travellers who will go back home with series defeats wrapped only in learnings, as evidenced by their comeback in Bangladesh Tests. They will stretch the hosts, challenge the otherwise accepted subcontinental conventions and above all - put all their efforts behind sullying India's unblemished home run. If they could do it in Pune and take a 1-0 lead in Tests, what's to stop them from repeating it in Chennai?
For starters, their preparation is perhaps on the mark already. The Test series was evidence enough for them to identify spin as the most pertinent grey area and invest resources in countering it. No wonder then that, Australia have spent the couple of days leading up to the opening ODI trying to simulate the threat of Kuldeep Yadav's wrist spin which set up India's series-clinching Test in Dharamsala.
Australia's potency in the ODI game gives India the chance to put their abilities through the toughest test of their home stretch yet. Is Kedar Jadhav the most stable No. 6 option for the long run? Can KL Rahul nail down the No. 4 spot? What about Hardik Pandya the finisher? A lot of their questions will get definitive answers.
The 2019 World Cup is still quite some time away. Both teams will have 30-35 ODIs each between now and the showpiece event in England to lock in their best XIs. But a series against an equal opponent might be a good place to start short-listing prospective candidates.
When: India vs Australia, 1st ODI, September 17, 13.30 IST; 08:00 GMT
Where: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
What to expect: The pitch looks bereft of any grass, but Smith revealed that it was still soft and felt it could get hard pretty quick in the Chennai heat. But there is a threat of rain looming, with up to 60 percent precipitation expected between 2 PM and 5 PM IST, which along with dew factor could affect the teams' combination and approach to toss.
If the first lot of players who come out to practice are the ones who are generally picked to play, then Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah will keep Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami on the bench.
If KL Rahul looks over his shoulder, he'll find Manish Pandey gaining on him. Manish was one of the first four to bat in the nets and comes in at the back of a half-century each in ODIs and T20Is in Sri Lanka. While Rahul batted much later in the nets, there is a chance India will give a longer rope to him at the No. 4 spot.
India are also likely to field two wrist spinners, as Axar Patel has been ruled out of the first three ODIs through a left ankle sprain, sustained during a football session on Friday. The left-arm spinner did not take part in the full-fledged nets session on Saturday and was subsequently replaced by Ravindra Jadeja late on Saturday (September 16).
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah
Smith opted to defer his decision on the final playing XI until the morning of the match day, but gave away that Travis Head will continue to play at No. 4. That means, Hilton Cartwright will partner David Warner at the top until Aaron Finch recovers from his calf injury. Besides Adam Zampa, Smith has the chance of playing with three more spin options in the side in Ashton Agar, Head and Glenn Maxwell - each of who spent considerable amount of time bowling in the nets on Saturday.
Smith expects spin to play a big role, particularly through the middle overs when there will be a need to slow down the proceedings, and could end up naming just two fast bowlers - Pat Cummins and Nathan Coulter-Nile - in the line-up.
James Faulkner is back after missing out on Champions Trophy, but might have to bide his time as Australia could turn to Marcus Stoinis - a batting all-rounder.
Probable XI: David Warner, Hilton Cartwright, Steve Smith (c), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Pat Cummins, Ashton Agar
What they said:
"He has played a bit since then [Dharamsala Test]. A few of the guys played against him in the IPL and he is a good young talent and can be difficult to pick at times. Someone who you have to watch a little bit closely. Hopefully we can put him under pressure," Steve Smith on the threat posed by Kuldeep Yadav.
"I don’t think that we need to look at any series differently. As I mentioned in Sri Lanka as well, your preparation should matter more than who you are playing against. So obviously you'll assess strengths and weaknesses of all sides. As I have said before, you can’t raise or decrease your intensity according to who you are playing against," Virat Kohli on the outlook towards the Australian challenge.
