Australia Probable XI

Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey, Ashton Turner, Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa

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. 

Pat Cummins: Pat Cummins has been running the form of his life. His presence in the Australian lineup is presenting a lot of threats for the Indian top-order batsmen.

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.  

Toss Predictions

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.

Online cricket betting tips: 

  • Australia has toppled India in the last three ODI matches.
  • In the past ten years, India has lost only two series in their home conditions, which clarified their supremacy as a unit in their condition.   

Final Verdict 

We predict India to win the match.
