The two sides will then head to Vishakhapatnam and Chennai for the other two ODI games. Although the IND vs AUS ODI series won’t add any value to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Super League Points Table, it would help the two participating sides gear up for the marquee event which will be held later this year.
England topped the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Super League Points Table after bashing Bangladesh in the second ODI in Dhaka. After being asked to bat first, England batters racked up 326 runs in 50 overs, thanks to Jason Roy’s fine century and valiant contributions from skipper Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali and Sam Curran.

Later on in the game, Adil Rashid joined Curran’s way to dismiss the Bangladeshi middle and lower order. Eventually, owing to Curran and Rashid’s four wickets each, England were able to bundle out Bangladesh at 194 runs and won the contest by 132 runs.
