Meanwhile, Team India are currently serving a 14-day quarantine period in Sydney ahead of the ODI series. Nevertheless, Cricket Australia have made all necessary arrangements for the visitors to train and polished their skills. Although India have named a strong squad for limited-over games, Rohit Sharma’s absence might hamper the team. Mayank Agarwal is likely to be Dhawan’s new opening partner while KL Rahul is set to bat at number five with the wicket-keeping duties.
Notably, India have pleasant memories from their last visit to Australia in 2018-19. While the T20I series was tied 1-1, India won the Test & ODI series by 2-1. However, they’ll indeed face a more significant challenge this time around with Steve Smith and David Warner back in the Australian team.
