India vs Australia, 1st ODI preview: With the riveting four-match Test series behind them, India and Australia gear up for some white-ball action with the two sides facing off in the first of three One-Day Internationals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Friday.
Team India once again emerged victorious against Australia in a Test series, winning the four-Test rubber 2-1 after the final Test in Ahmedabad ended in a high-scoring draw. The Rohit Sharma-led side had retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after winning the first two Tests in Nagpur and Delhi inside three days.
The third Test in Indore also ended inside three days — but in an Australian victory, as Matthew Kuhnemann and Nathan Lyon managed to spin a web around the Indian batters. Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli, however, scored tons in Ahmedabad to help the hosts score nearly 600 and evaporate Australia’s hopes of pulling off a series-leveling win.
Australia, incidentally, were the last team to beat India on their own backyard in any format, winning three games in a row after losing the first two in an ODI series in 2019 right before the World Cup. India, though, would exact revenge less than a year later, winning a three-match ODI series 2-1 after losing the opening game.
