Updated on: Sep 18, 2023 5:52 pm IST

India and Australia will be up against each other in the 1st ODI of India vs Australia ODI Series 2023, to be held at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh on 22nd September, 1:30 PM IST onwards.

While India is riding high after becoming Asian champions, Australia must be still having the bitter aftertaste of 3 ODI losses against South Africa. Australia will also miss the presence of Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head who are sitting out, courtesy injuries. On the other hand, India must be in a selection dilemma, with so many deserving options to choose from.

Let’s see who will have the last laugh from the 2 best teams in the world.

IND vs AUS Dream11 Prediction

This is a tough call as both teams are among the top 3 in world cricket. Australia was doing great on their tour to South Africa, however, lost track at the end losing 3 games in a row. India, on the other hand, is winning series after series, with Asia Cup being the latest feather in its hat. Australia has an edge in head-to-head comparison, with a 3-2 lead in the last 5 games.

Having said this, India is looking very confident after winning the Asia Cup while Australia is having its key players struggling with injuries. Also, Indians are invincible on the home turf.

Overall, India looks well poised to win this encounter, especially in home conditions.
