Haven’t we just had this? Australia will once again take on the world number one team, but this time on their own turf.

Always a scary, intimidating yet exciting proposition as India are traditional powerhouses in their own backyard.

With the 50 over World Cup not far away, this short bi-lateral series holds greater importance to both sides with the stage set to hold auditions for potential players to make a name for themselves.

It will be interesting to see what the outcome of this series holds for both teams, as the final combinations for their World Cup squads may depend on who performs in these upcoming matches.

An extended BBL has many of Australia’s premier white-ball batsmen looking well-seasoned, so expect an aggressive and explosive start particularly from the likes of Aaron Finch and D’Arcy Short, who was the BBL’s highest run-scorer.

Finch is also no stranger to Indian conditions either, having played in nearly every IPL team and has been highly sought after by the various franchises for his power-hitting abilities.

The firepower for Australia looks quite electric with the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell and Adelaide Strikers’ captain Alex Carey another notable addition to bolster the batting for the visitors.

The bowling seems low on quality spin options though, with only Adam Zampa and the Glen Maxwell’s part-timers included in the attack.

Meanwhile, India will be sky high with confidence given their recent successful history-making tour of Australia.

Their batting stocks are well oiled with obvious sizeable contributions to be expected from Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dawan, MS Dhoni and even Rishabh Pant, who showed off his shot-making talents Down Under.

The tussle between Dinesh Karthik and KL Rahul for the number four spot is probably the only really concern for the home team, otherwise the bowling looks significantly more potent than Australia’s too.

Yuzvendra Chahal is a class act with his wrist spin, having taken a 6-for against the visitors.

Jasprit Bumrah is also the first-choice seamer, and we all know what he is capable of. Join us for all the action on our live blog right here on The Roar at 12:30am AEDT.

Prediction
Virat Kohli has taken a wary approach, stating that India is being careful not to underestimate the Aussies, given the inclusion of Marcus Stoinis’ all-round abilities in the middle order.

However, unless the visitors can overcome the spin threat of Yuzvendra Chahal, expect India to secure a comfortable victory in familiar conditions.
