Australia clinched the 2-match T20I against India in India after failing to win any of the series across the three formats when the Indian team toured Down Under recently. Both the teams will now face off in the 5-match ODI series that kick starts in Hyderabad on Saturday. A series win could give Australia a push in the ODI rankings who are currently placed at No.6 and have been pretty poor in the last two years in this format. This series will be India’s last International assignment ahead of the World Cup.
