IND vs AUS Team India Probable Playing XI: The India vs Australia ODI series is now just three days away. The series will start in Mumbai on March 17. Previously, the Australian team had lost the first two Test matches to India, but won again by nine wickets in the third match. Not only this, Australia tied the last and fourth game of the series. That is, since the tour of India, the Australian team is slowly moving towards a better performance. Now it is the turn of the ODI series, where the match will be drawn. But the difficulty for Team India is that Rohit Sharma does not play the first match and on the other hand Shreyas Iyer is injured. Although BCCI has not given any update regarding Shreyas Iyer, it is believed that Shreyas Iyer will not be able to play any matches of the ODI series. The BCCI has not announced his departure from the series or announced his replacement. But if Shreyas Iyer is out of the ODI series, then who will get the chance to play in his place is a big question in itself.
KL Rahul may have a chance in the middle order
Shreyas Iyer may not have been a part of the Team India T20 squad but in ODIs he has been consistently playing for the Indian team and has performed well. He may not have scored too many runs with the bat in recent ODIs, but at least he provides stability in the middle order and keeps the scoring running with singles and doubles. Now if he is ruled out of the ODI series, which is very likely, then which player will stand a chance? So KL Rahul can be considered as the strongest contender for this. KL Rahul’s form is also going bad at the moment, but even after this, the India team has no choice but to feed him.
KL Rahul had scored a very slow half century against Sri Lanka.
KL Rahul was given a chance in the first two Test matches against Australia, but his bat failed to function in a single innings. After this he was heavily criticized and captain Rohit Sharma dropped him from the starting XI in the third and fourth games and gave Shubman Gill a chance. He didn’t even bat in the third match, but aside from Virat Kohli, he also had a century in the fourth Test. In such a situation, KL Rahul will definitely be under pressure right now, but if he gets the chance, he will have a good chance to answer his critics and play big innings. KL Rahul scored a half century in the second ODI against Sri Lanka. In that match he scored an unbeatable 64, another thing is that he faced 156 balls for this. But he had an important role in helping the Indian team to win. KL Rahul will have to play in the mid order in the absence of Shreyas Iyer and if there is a crisis in the team then he will have to do the recovery job. You have to see how they manage to perform in the three games of this series.
