India vs Australia on September 22


India will be up against Australia in the 1st ODI match of the Australia Tour of India at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on September 22. This is going to be the first of a three-match ODI series in India and is being seen as good preparation for both these teams ahead of the World Cup. Both the teams would be looking forward to testing their bench strength with this series. India had squared off against Sri Lanka in their last match, where Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat. The final match of the Asia Cup turned out to be a nightmare for the Lankans as Siraj ripped apart their batting lineup. He picked up six wickets, giving away just 21 runs as Sri Lanka were bowled out for a record-low total of just 50. Such a total was never going to be an issue for the in-form batting lineup of the Indian team. They chased the total in just six overs and won the match emphatically by 10 wickets. Australia had squared off against South Africa in their last match, where Australia won the toss and elected to bowl. Being put to bat, Africans started slow and were going ahead cautiously, but as soon as the pair of Aiden Markram and David Miller joined hands, the scoring shot up immediately. With a fantastic finish by Marco Jansen and Andile Phehlukwayo, they put up a strong total of 315 runs. Australia started the chase aggressively and had a good partnership for the third wicket, but other than Marsh and Marnus, no one contributed. As a result, they were bowled out for 193 and lost the match by 122 runs. 

Best economical pick – Star Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj could be the best bowler for India in the first ODI against Australia. Siraj has been in excellent form recently, and he would be keen on showcasing his skills against Australia as well.

Top captains & vice captains Indian opener Shubman Gill has maintained his second position in the rankings with his regular performances. His recent form makes him a lock-pick for the captaincy roles in your fantasy team. Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh could be the best batter in the first ODI between India and Australia. Marsh has been in excellent form as of late with the bat and he will look to amass some very important runs for his side against India as well. 

Smart pick – KL Rahul has made a fantastic comeback after his injury, scoring 169 runs in just three innings of the recently concluded Asia Cup. He would be keeping wickets as well and can fetch you hefty points.

Cautious Pick – Josh Inglis has not been able to perform to the merit he holds. He should not find a place in your fantasy team.

My XI – Shubman Gill (Captain), Mitchell Marsh (Vice-Captain), KL Rahul, Mohammad Siraj, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Ishan Kishan, Steven Smith, David Warner, Ravindra Jadeja, Cameron Green
