India vs Australia: ODI Series Preview

David Warner to miss the opening matches against India


As Indian Cricket team completed their maiden practice session in Perth, Australia, there was some good news for the visitors. The aggressive Australian David Warner is likely to miss the first two ODI between the India vs Australia as he is on the paternity leave. This news came into account on the same day when he smashed a century in just 82 balls against the West Indies at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

It will be not a very big blow for the Australian Cricket Team as they have a very packed and good batting line up. David Warner may not have a very good record against India but still looking his form in the previous months, he might have brought many difficulties for the Indian bowling attack. He is likely to miss the first two ODIs scheduled in Perth and Brisbane but will be back for the remaining three.

Previous months were one of the finest Australian Summer for David Warner. He scored four test centuries including a career-best 253, in six Tests against New Zealand and the West Indies. He’s scored 818 runs in all at an average of 90.88 and a strike-rate of 91.80.

Australian will have to find a equal fiery partner for Aaron Finch like David Warner to start the innings against the bowling attack of India. Shaun Marsh can get this opportunity as he his experienced and in good form in the previous test series.

Australian will have to overcome with some bowling problem as Mitchell Johnson having retired and Mitchell Starc out with injury. But they have James Faulkner and Josh Hazzlewood who have played wonderfully lately in World Cup. Kane Richardson has now taste of international cricket and left-arm pacer Joel Paris will complete the seam attack.
