Those Australian players, who were not selected for the ODI series after the Test, will return to the country, while the players who were not in the Test, but were selected for the ODI series, have arrived in India. Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya, who was appointed captain of the first ODI, is now about to embark on a new mission but he has a big challenge ahead of him. Which they have to overcome at all costs. Rohit Sharma will join the Indian team from the second match after the first.
Hardik Pandya will captain the India team for the first time in ODI
The challenge against Hardik Pandya will be huge because the whole Australian team will be completely new to him. Hardik Pandya was not a part of the Test series but is now making a comeback from ODI. Not only this, Hardik Pandya has a great responsibility on his shoulders, he has to keep up the work that Rohit Sharma has shown in ODI this year. He will tell you what. In fact, the Indian team has contested six ODIs so far this year. In all these, Team India has been captained by Rohit Sharma and the Indian team has not lost a single match in it. The India team first defeated Sri Lanka in three ODIs earlier this year and then defeated New Zealand in all three ODI series. Hardik Pandya has previously captained him in T20 for the Indian team and also won the title for his team Gujarat Titans in IPL but for Team India, he will be seen captaining for the first time in ODI. In such a situation, facing the Australian team will not be easy for them.
