India vs Australia
1st ODI Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 17 Mar, 01:30 PM (IST)
Series: 1st ODI Match
Venue: Holkar Cricket Stadium – Indore, India
IND vs AUS Dream11 Prediction:
- Virat Kohli has scored over 12800 runs in this format including 46 centuries. The former India captain is well worth backing as their highest run scorer in this opening ODI. With the ball, Mohammed Siraj was in exceptional form in this format earlier in the year. He is our tip for India’s top wicket taker against Australia.
- Steve Smith averages 45.11 with 12 hundreds in ODI cricket and the skipper is our pick for Australia’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Mitchell Starc has 211 wickets in this format and he is a strong choice for Australia’s top wicket taker on Friday.
- Mohammed Siraj will bowl with good energy and enthusiasm throughout this match. We recommend backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.
IND vs AUS Live Streaming:
This match will be shown live on Star Sports, BT Sport, Foxtel and Kayo.
Fans can stream the match on Disney+ Hotstar.
Weather & Pitch Report:
The weather forecast is for uninterrupted sunshine for the majority of this match before clear skies in the evening. The temperature will not drop below 29 degrees.
There are always plenty of runs on offer at this venue and we expect a par score of 300+. The wicket will be a bit quicker than we have seen across the recent Test series.
Four of the last five ODIs at this venue have been won by the team batting second and we predict that both captains will choose to field first if they win the toss ahead of this game.

With captain Pat Cummins remaining in Australia due to a family bereavement, Steve Smith, who skippered the team across the last two Tests, will lead the side again in this series. There are no injuries in the squad ahead of this first ODI at the Wankhede Stadium.

India are favorites to beat Australia
IND Key Players:
Virat Kohli –
The right-handed top order batter comes into this game after hitting 186 in last week’s Test Match. He also hit 113 and 166 not out against Sri Lanka in the 50 over format earlier this year.
Shubman Gill –
The off-spinning bowling all-rounder has taken at least three wickets in every innings of this series so far and looks dangerous whenever he comes on to bowl.
Mohammed Siraj –
The 29 year old pace bowler took 14 wickets from five ODIs earlier this year and he has established himself as a key part of India’s bowling attack.
AUS Key Players:
Steve Smith –
The captain did not make a half-century across the Test series but often made a good start in his innings. He will not take unnecessary risks but will score at a good rate.
Mitchell Marsh –
The batting all-rounder has established himself as one of Australia’s most reliable performers in white ball cricket over recent years.
Mitchell Starc –
The left-arm pace bowler came back into the Test side for the last two games but will be particularly dangerous with his inswinging yorkers in the final overs of India’s innings.
