AUS vs IND today match prediction: The much anticipated series is here and it kick-starts with the 50 over format in Sydney. The majority of the players from both the sides took part in the recently concluded IPL and no one is short of match practice. Even the likes of Marnus Labuschagne who is not part of IPL engaged himself in the Sheffield Shield trophy and accumulated huge amount of runs in there.
India played an intra squad match few days ago and they are all fresh off from a successful IPL and this series should live up to its expectations in all likelihood
Lets take a look at the AUS vs IND dream11 prediction
In AUS vs IND today match prediction, lets take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides
They will be high on confidence after defeating the world champions in their own den in England. They have a pretty settled batting lineup and bowling attack as well. They have good batting depth with Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc at #8 and #9 and it should give good cushion to their top order batters.
Their top 5 are fresh off from an incredibly successful IPL. Their bowling attack is in good stead as well. They have a strong lower middle order with the arrival of Hardik Pandya.
The inconsistency of Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey should be a worrying sign for them. They would be hoping for their veteran bowler Mitchell Starc to turn up as his records against India are below par.
The absence of Rohit Sharma will be felt for sure as he is a monumental player against Australia. He loves thrashing Aussie bowlers. It will also rest on the team selection by Virat Kohli & co as they have this tendency to play Shardul Thakur citing batting depth.

AUS vs IND dream11 team for today’s match
This will be a high budget game and its important to pick right players for the fantasy leagues and in AUS vs IND dream11 prediction, lets bring out the important players from both sides
Shikhar Dhawan: He loves playing against Australians. He averages 45 after playing 27 games with a healthy strike rate of 98. If he survives the initial burst of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, and Josh Hazelwood, he might get a big one.
Virat Kohli: He has been having a rough year and a half by his standards and has geared up in the best possible manner with a 91 run knock off 58 balls in the practice game. He averages a whopping 54 in 40 games at a strike rate of 96 against Australia.
David Warner: He is a beast in white ball cricket. He is a prolific run-getter in ODIs and especially in Australia. He was seen in very good form towards the second half of IPL and is expected to continue with that form. He has played 19 games against India and averages 49 at a strike rate of 96.
Steve Smith: The crisis man for Australia. After a poor IPL, he will be looking to start afresh. His record against India is staggering to say the least. He averages 60 after 18 games at a strike rate of 98.
Other picks: Jasprit Bumrah, Adam Zampa, KL Rahul and Pat Cummins are all can be valuable picks
Today match score: Team batting first will look to score at least 300
Today match pitch report: The wicket is slow by nature in Sydney but should be a decent batting track considering this is the first game of the series.
