India begin their ICC Cricket World Cup Super League campaign as they resume international cricket with the ODI series against Australia. The first two games of the ODI series will be held in Sydney with the action shifting to Canberra for the final game.

Friday, 27 November, 02.40pm local time, 03.40am GMTIndia last played ODI cricket earlier this year in New Zealand, where they lost all three matches. They have a few selection queries facing them, most notably at the top of the batting order.
In the absence of an unfit Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan’s opening partner will have to be identified from KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Shubman Gill.
Rahul might also continue to bat in the middle-order and double up as wicket-keeper, as he has been doing in the last few ODIs for India.
