India these days set all their eyes for the grand battle against Australia yet to be played on Indian soil. This five-match ODI series starting on September 17, promises to be a riveting contest. The last time Australia came to India for an ODI series, it was a run-feast. This time also the one on offer doesn’t look any different with pitches being flat, producing hardly anything for the faster bowlers. Although the spinners could take a long breath in this regard as spin bowling might come into play as the game progresses with a bit of wear and tear of the track. With the home team boasting players of great skill both with the bat and ball, here is a look at the players to watch out for the upcoming series that kicks off at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
The Indian opener had a magnificent run in the shorter format of the game against Sri Lanka. Having scored two centuries and a fifty, Rohit would be looking forward to the series against Australia.
There is hardly a better sight in world cricket than watching Rohit in full flow and his good form would be ideal for the home side to get off to a great start and set the tone for the rest of the games.
