AUS vs IND 1st ODI Prediction & Betting Tips

International cricket is finally back with two cricketing giants battling for supremacy. Yes, it's time for 'Thunder Down Under'. Virat Kohli's men created history the last time they toured the country, winning the Test and ODI series. This time around, things won't be that easy. The return of Steven Smith and David Warner has given a massive boost to this Australian unit. Marnus Labuschagne is another batsmen to watch out for. He's been outstanding since his debut, piling on the runs all around the globe. Then there is Aaron Finch, the destructive Aaron Finch, who can decimate the opposition on his day. Players like Glen Maxwell and Marcus Stonis provide depth to the batting line up. When it comes to the bowling department, in Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazelwood and Pat Cummins, Australia are second to none. Yes, they lack a quality spinner but still their team looks a very balanced squad that will give Virat Kohli's men a run for their money.

India on the other hand would be very confident going in to the series. A star studded batting line up to go along a fearsome bowling unit, they're probably the best ODI team going around. With Rohit Sharma missing out due to injury, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan will open the innings for India. Both the batsmen were in ominous form in the recently concluded Indian Premier League. You get through them, walks in the King, Virat Kohli to add to your nemesis. There is plenty of quality in the middle order in Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson and Manish Pandey while Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are proven finishers. Done with the batting ? Now let's talk about the bowling. There was a time when India was bullied for not producing quality bowlers but not anymore. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini forms a lethal pace attack. Ravindra Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal compliments the pace trio to perfection. Wooh, what a contest we have on our hands. There's not a lot to choose between the teams but the quality India brings in their spin department gives them a slight edge over the hosts.
