After 4-1 finish against the Kiwis the Indian Team is looking to play-down the Aussies again who are coming back on a Test Series win against Srilanka. But a stiff challenge awaits for the Aussies as India is in no mood to let them go away easily. While the T20I team will also be announced with T20I’s being played at Vishakhpatnam on 24th Feb & Bengaluru at 27th Feb. Also, Virat is likely to be rested for the T20I’s with Bumrah getting back in, Shami might also get a chance in T20I’s. So, the Expected Indian ODI Squad for the home series is as follows:
Expected Indian ODI Squad For Home Series Against Australia:-
A settled combo of Rohit and Shikhar will lead the charge again up the order and they showed how they can turn the match in their way whenever they want. Both had a brilliant series in both Australia and New Zealand, with Rohit also captained the team well in absence of Virat in latter half of New Zealand series.
With the conditions more likely to favour faster bowlers during the World Cup, India found their back-up bowler in face of Mohammed Shami & Khaleel Ahmed. Both bowled really well and are prepared for the World Cup. While Bumrah will be back in the side & will essay his role back again along with Bhuvneshwar.

Spin twins Chahal and Kuldeep will once again take the charge of the spin department with a stiff competition from Ravindra Jadeja from one end for a spot in the XI due to his all-round.
With almost a settled middle-order after a great overseas series & both Ambati Rayudu and Kedar Jadhav played their roles at 4th & 6th spot brilliantly. Also, Virat will be bat at 3 and Dinesh Karthik will be the back-up batsman in the squad. All the batsman are in top from with Kedar Jadhav & Dinesh Karthik essaying the finishers role very well whenever given the chance but his sloppy fielding might become a cause of his ouster. With a good performance in T20I’s against New Zealand, Rishab Pant is very much in contention for a spot in the World Cup Squad.
After being awarded Man of the Series in Australia ODI’s and a great performance in New Zealand series, found our old Mahi back. He will be the key player for the side in World Cup.
After more than a injury lay-off and controversial remarks on TV show, Hardik came back and played the few ODI’s of New Zealand series along with T20I’s. His performance was good and will be the key player for India in World Cup. While Ravindra Jadeja is likely to be his back-up, when needed. Also, Vijay Shankar is still in contention & is battling for a spot because of his All-Round abilities along with a great show in Final ODI against New Zealand in which he made 45 odd and bowled good & a few odd runs in T20I’s are making his case for a spot in the team.
