The biggest breaking news from the Australian dressing room is that senior opening batsman David Warner will not play in the first ODI against India, which will be played at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. After losing the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023 four-match Test series 1-2, Australia will now play a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series in India during this crucial 50-overs ICC World Cup year. Australia has also won their last three One-Day International (ODI) matches against England.
“David Warner is not yet fully fit, so Mitch Marsh will open the batting. The rest of the changes will come on the big television here soon enough,” said skipper Smith (DURING TOSS).
Mitchell Marsh hopes to give the visiting team a good start as he is prepared to face Shami and Siraj’s initial attack.
