Australia Key Players
Marnus Labuschagne: After a dream performance in the test format, he has got his opportunity to rub his shoulder in the ODI format.

Pitch and Weather Conditions
The Wankhede stadium is prominent for its batting-friendly nature. The size of the ground is always a matter of worry for the spinners.
The forecast report is indicating that the weather may remain cloudy, which will force to role out dew factor out of the equation.
Wankhede stadium has been a happy hunting ground for chasing. So by considering this record, both teams will prefer to bat second, rather than to post a total.
