The Australian sides top order is very likely going to be captain Aaron Finch and David Warner. Steve Smith will be returning to the side most likely at number three, after missing the ODI series against England after getting a concussion in training. Since Marnus Labuschagne has come into the Australian side he has been very impressive which includes a ODI century after South Africa earlier this year. The Australian middle order is most likely going to consist of Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell who can cause cause damage towards to end of the innings. Also they are both all rounders who can bowl a few overs if required. However, the young 21-year-old Cameron Green may get an opportunity for Australia in the ODI Series at some point
Alex Carey will be looking to continue his from the ODI Series against England after scoring an important century against the world champions, he will also be the wicketkeeper for the home side. Australia’s bowling attack is most likely to consist of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and leg-spinner Adam Zampa.
The Indian side are missing their star opening batsman Rohit Sharma through injury so Shikhar Dhawan’s opening partner is either going to be Mayank Agarwal or Shubman Gill. India’s bowling attack will consist of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami whilst the selectors will have to choose between Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur as the other pace bowler for India. Also, the other decision that will have to be made for the Indian side is the spinner that they will play. Yuzvendra Chahal had a very good IPL tournament and may play ahead of Kuldeep Yadav.
