Three games in the India vs Australia one-day international series are slated to take place on September 22 in Mohali (today), September 24 in Indore, and September 27 in Rajkot. This is a fantastic opportunity on paper. Australia and India are playing in the same arena where the World Cup will be held in two weeks.
Both teams are well balanced with a bit of injury concerns. It is quite obvious that either side would not be willing to “already be cooked” for the forthcoming World Cup. India gave rest to Skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, and other important players for the first two matches of this series.
KL Rahul will be leading the Indian Team in the absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma. Ravindra Jadeja is handed the role of Vice-captain. In the absence of Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav, the addition of Ravi Ashwin brings the experience to the table. India, even without the full-strength side, is looking strong and balanced as a team.
Australia, on the other hand, have decided to rest Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell while Smith and Pat Cummins are all set to run around on the ground. They will be highly interested in Adam Zampa and Marnus Labuchange’s performance as Zampa has played a lot of IPL games in India and Labuchangne can bat in the middle and contribute with the ball.

Winds will gust toward the Northwest at the speed of ~8kmph during the day.
Mohali is clearly a batting paradise. You can expect a lot of runs here in today’s match. Mohali hasn’t hosted an ODI in over four years but expect a flat pitch like you find here for more regular T20 cricket. The longer square boundaries should again add a tactical dimension to the cricket on display.
From a bowling perspective, a decent bounce, carry, and occasional zip off the surface keep the bowler highly active on their runup. The pacers (43) have taken more wickets than the spinners (22) in the previous five ODIs played here, but they have also been less economical.
