    Predict the outcome of the Australia versus India ODI series

    Two strong ODI outfits, which team will win?

    Australia have home advantage and they will benefit from that.

    However, India won the last bilateral series between these two teams, so it looks like it will be a close contest.

    It's gonna be a very tight series. Indians got the batting firepower and match-winning bowlers so I'll vote 1-2 to India.

    Although won't be surprised if Aussies win it 2-1.

    Aussie middle order and lower middle order is inconsistent. Think india will win.

    Aus should bring back handscomb, let marnus be a test specialist.

    Rohit is an immense loss. India have the resources to cope reasonably well without him, but his absence makes Australia favorites in my view.

    Nevertheless, regardless of the outcome, it is going to be a great series between two incredible teams.

    When Australians get on top from the beginning of tour, usually the hey dont let you rise from then on. From that point of view, it's important to start the tour solid with few wins. The team is capable batting wise but remains to be seen how the white ball bowling line up bowls in Australia.
    The series depends on how well India can bowl.

    This Australian team is a top side, among the three best sides in the world alongside India and England, but people have a habit of overrating them because of the past heroics of the great Australian side.

    All this talk of them not allowing anyone to recover in a series and their big game mentality does not apply to this Australian team.

    We heard the same last year during the World Cup when some Australian fans wouldnít stop talking about how they turn up in World Cups, but then we saw what happened to them in the semifinal.

    Similarly, they had a golden chance of winning the Ashes in England for the first time since 2001, but they got pasted in the 5th Test and the series ended 2-2.

    In UAE two years ago, the drew the first Test vs Pakistan from an unlikely position but didnít capitalize on that momentum and got butchered in the second Test.

    Langer made an inspiring speech in the dressing room after that Test and we saw it on Amazon prime, but none of that helped the team turn up in the second Test.

    Moreover, we saw their grand surrender in India in 2016 after they thumped India in the first Test.

    Generally speaking, it is hard for any touring side to win a series if they do win the first Test, especially if it is a long tour. However, that is not unique to this Australian side and neither do they have any special abilities.

    As an Indian fan, one thing we have overcome is fear of playing Australian fast bowlers. We did that long time ago. So that hostility and fear isn't there no more. Things got even better when we found depth and quality in lower batting order.

    In past few years the difference has been how we can match up to the task in the field and with the ball. Australian grounds are huge, lot of running and diving and them Aussies ensure to make the difference in fitness standards hurt.

    If you have a quality team which can match up to the Aussies strength and conditioning size then it's game on because pitches have no demons in them u like our sub par SC pitched. Great tracks to bat. Capable batsmen should score a ton of runs down under.

    I think the test Australian side has become very strong now with the inclusion of Marnus Labuschagne. Other top teams have good bowling attack as well but in batting it would come down to the two best players to perform as most teams have only two quality batsmen to rely on away from home. But now Australia has Smith, Warner and Marnus and that is what makes them a very strong team.

    India have Kohli and Pujara. NZ have Kane and Rosco and England have Root and Stokes. But Australia have Smith, Warner and Marnus.

    I know your comprehending abilities leave a lot to desire but seriously?


    All the focus on this tour is on the Tests. So when one hears "Rohit Sharma to miss Aussie tour", their attention automatically shifts to it's impact on the test series. So, indeed it is a blessing in disguise. Obviously he'll be missed in Lois as he's arguably our best white ball player. But no-one will care if India gets swept in both ODIs and T20s even if we draw the Test series.

    Yep. Contrary to what people say, australian bowlers isn't their main strength although it is probably their best every attack tbh. It is Smith and Warner that make the difference. Those boys from Australia are lucky they don't have to face the mighty Smith otherwise their averages would have been inflated.

    McGrath and everyone are lucky not to have faced a guy like Smith. I truly respect this guy regardless whether he is a cheater or not. The best batsman I have ever seen in my life. Absolute monster.

    Yea india closed the gap in terms of fitness standards which is why they won last time but I still think toss will decide the winner in this series.

    We have Mayank who is every bit as good as marnus. He smacked the aussie attack off the couch.

    India beat full strength Australia in India last time.
    India beat full strength Australia in the world cup.
    India beat weaker Australia side in 2018.

    Weaker Australia beat weaker india side in India back in 2018. That was it.

    That weaker Australia side actually had better odi specialist players like Khawaja and some other blokes like jhye who is a better odi bowler than Hazelwood.

    But yea I agree India stand no chance now in Australia. Should just give up and go home. Only the mighty Pakistanis can show us how to beat Aussies in Aussie. We need to learn from them. Wonder what their secret is.

    India won 3 out of the last 4 ODIs against full strength Australia. What makes you think they stand no chance?

    I agree Australia are favourites on home soil, but even without Rohit, we should still have a chance.

    Not really. Both teams will probably rest a few players, particularly, in T20s. Aussies are beatable in LO format. Their M.O and fifth bowling option is weak.

    Tests gonna be toughest since 2011 IMO.

    Who rested in ODI series from Aus?

    We don't have part time blowers, all 5 bowlers has to complete their quota.
    Aus has 7 bowling options, Stoinis and Maxwell can bowl few overs.

    3-0 to aussies as Ind are without rohit and Aus have the home advantage. Kohli too is'nt in great form.
    But I wont be surprised if Ind win the series as they are a top ODI side but have a feeling they are lacking balance big time with Pandya not bowling.

    We don't have part time blowers, all 5 bowlers has to complete their quota.
    Aus has 7 bowling options, Stoinis and Maxwell can bowl few overs.
    Their fifth bowler is Stoinis and Maxwell. That is weak. They don't have Mitchell Marsh I think so that can be advantage for us. We are surely an overall better LOI side than Australia but without Rohit, it is even steven.

    India is a loser team. Pakistan is great team. Best team. God given talent. Too much phasst, spin power.
    We have to watch tapes of Pakistani players to learn how to battle vs Aussies.

    Yea I know that. We have been trained to lose from watching Pakistan play often. Desi follows desi. Hopefully we both pick up soon. We need you guys to show us the way. We are struggling at the moment after a tough IPL.

    Mayank did he not smash Australia in tests? I referred to tests not odi.
    He is still new in odi and has done pretty well. He laid good foundations. Could have been better but it's ok.

    He is older than Labu and I don't see him performing at this level. I do accept that he is a very good batsman. But he needs performances like Labu to be called on par with him.

    Looks like I was horribly wrong. Still, I think India can win the last match of the series if they bowl better, really need Bumrah and Shami to take 1 more wicket each in the first 10 overs.

    He performed vs Australia right off the couch vs their bowling in the last test series. He is a world class batsman. Labu performed well at home and in a couple of games back in England due to county exposure.

    Mayank hasn't played in England or s.africa yet. Wait till he gets there and you shall see.

    In odi's he is still new and labu isnt that good in odi either. Mayank has done his job in odi. He is fine.

    Besides Mayank is an opener. Far far more difficult to open than bat in the middle order.

    Well I am talking about Rahul and a century in Aus is still an achievement but come on now, Yasir shah has one against the same bowling. Rahul needs to assert himself more or it can be an avg tour for him

    Mayank is not a better batsman than KL Rahul and Labuschagne.

    He is better than Iyer and Pandey but not as good as KLR. By the time their career ends, KLR will be a superior batsmen among them all.

    Way too early to compare.
    Agzrwal will score against lesser attacks in India but he played first 5 ODI'S against NZ and Aus away.
    Labu is less attacking but will be a more regular scorer.

    Depends - ODI game has changed so much that statistically you can't measure players from different position. In very limited scope (9 innings), Labus has a stats of 45+/90+ at No. 4, which is much better than Agarwal's 17+/103+ over 5 innings.

    AUS was always going to win this series - question was 2-1 or 3-0. I think, unless IND wins the toss it's going to be 3-0 - even if they win the toss, it's 50-50 in 3rd ODI. A full strength AUS, in AUS is the most daunting task in cricket.

    India aren't full strength though. Just saying. Not saying we can win for sure but it would be 60 40 if India were full strength.

    Who is missing? BKumar? Itís his great fortune for his reputation that he is missing this series and his 30 odd average against Australia didnít get a brutal spank.

    Like you said, ODI game has changed much - despite the lower average Mayankís ability to accelerate is one that Labuschagne lacks.

    Typically after a low sample size of innings, average is less indicative of quality but strike rate tells us a little more. For example, even Abid Ali is statistically best since Bradman and rivaling Steve Smith right now in Test cricket.

    I expect Mayankís average to rise and Labuschagneís to fall from the stats you listed. But just from viewing both, Mayank comes across as relatively bigger in impact as a player which is what matters ultimately in ODI cricket especially in this age of flat tracks.

    I liked what I saw of Mayank but in the last match there was one glaring fault in Mayanks batting and that was his cover driving. Even when he drove Cummins for two boundaries his stance was very awkward and there was a tendency to ply the ball in the air. He can be easily found out. What I am amazed at is India gives chances to literally anyone except their best Talent. With Rohit gone, Gilll sitting out is a crime.

    Bhuvi
    Rohit Sharma

    Bhuvi is good with the new ball and can cobtain better than Saini. We would have a very good chance to win. He also has finch'# number.
