India vs Australia (IND vs AUS) 1st ODI: India will be in fine song with the incorporation of Shikhar Dhawan, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami back into the squad, when they go into the clash against Australia at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Tuesday.
Virat Kohli will be chasing a record against Australia, trying to equal Sachin Tendulkar’s feat of scoring the most ODI centuries on home soil, and he might even succeed, considering his brilliant 85-run knock against West Indies. On the other hand, the Indian seam team will hope to be dangerous along with Shikhar Dhawan who flashed his bat well against Sri Lanka in the T20I-series, and might start above his captain.
The visitors are also in fine form with Aaron Finch hoping to count on his three batsmen, David Warner, Steve Smith and the expectant debutant Marnus Labuschagne, to inflict pain on the Men in Blue. Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc are ever-deadly and can be even more if due is present on Tuesday.

Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Peter Handscomb, Alex Carey (w), Ashton Turner, Adam Zampa, Kane Richardson, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc.
