India face a full-strength Australia in the first ODI of their three-match series at Mumbai on January 14. Live streaming will be available.
The Men In Blue will be relying on their pace department boasting the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Navdeep Saini.
Meanwhile, the Aussies will be depending on Pat Cummins, Kane Richardson and Mitchell Starc.
The young Marnus Labuschagne, easily the most exciting talent spreading his wings on the international cricket map with some stellar performances in the Test arena, would like to replicate his form in the shorter formats.
For India though, the main cause of concern will be the choice between Dhawan and Rahul. If the current form is an indicator, Rahul is miles ahead to partner Rohit Sharma at the top of the order but Dhawan has had a phenomenal record in white-ball cricket against the Aussies. The team management will need to make a big decision.
