India vs Australia Playerzpot Prediction 1st ODI Preview, Team News, Playing 11

As the preparations for the upcoming World Cup kick-off in full-swing, Team India take on Australia for the first of five ODIs in Hyderabad. After losing the T20I series against Australia, India aim to come out all guns blazing for the final ODI series before heading for the World Cup.


“Every team will be looking to fine-tune whatever they need before the World Cup, and we will keep doing that in the ODI series too, but we want to win each and every match we play,” Virat Kohli.

Team India will thus try to experiment and try out different combinations before they head out for the World Cup.

Where: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad

When: 02 March at 1:30 PM IST


Australia Head coach Justin Langer backs Aaron Finch to gain back form

“He is such a good player and a good person and also the captain of the team and, I hope he will come good,” Langer said.

KL Rahul happy to taste success

“It has humbled me a bit. I respect the opportunity. I just want to value where I am and keep working on my cricket,” KL Rahul said.

  • Shaun Marsh is unavailable for selection for Saturday's match and his hamstring will see him miss the match in Hyderabad.
  • Aaron Finch has confirmed the inclusion of Alex Carey in the playing XI as the wicketkeeper.


  • Ambati Rayudu, Mohammad Shami, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav have returned in the ODI squad.

Fantasy Picks India

  • India skipper Virat Kohli averages 59.60 in the 50-overs format and he has registered 39 centuries in ODIs so far. He is an unmissable fantasy pick.
  • Rohit Sharma was rested for the second T20I. He is most likely to come back for the first ODI against Australia.


Fantasy Picks Australia

  • Glenn Maxwell is the man of the moment. He smashed an unbeaten 113 in the second T20I and won the match and man of the series for his stellar performance. He would look forward to carrying the momentum in the ODIs too.
