AUS vs IND DREAM11 Prediction | Australia vs India 1st ODI | Who Will Win

After a historic win over the mighty Aussies in the four-match Test series by 2-1, India will now enter the 3-match ODI series with tremendous confidence by their side which is slated to kick-off from January 12th in Sydney.

India engraved their name in the history books by becoming the first ever sub-continent nation to register a Test series win over Australia in their own den. It took them 71 years to harvest this drought, but the way they displayed the character on the field was worth watching and waiting.

The Indian team is sweating hard at the nets to continue their dominance in the ODIs as well. Now, with the change in format, the visitors will look to carry forward the confidence of their emphatic Test glory and put up their good work in the upcoming three matches.

As far as Australians are concerned, they would be looking to avenge their humiliating defeat in the Test series. Aaron Finch will be back donning the captain’s hat like the way he did in the T20I series.

The Australians have made many changes in their squad with the notable being the exclusion of the pace trio Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood. They have been replaced by Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Peter Siddle who is making a comeback in the coloured outfit after 9 years.
