The Indian team has been practicing for the last one week for the 3-match ODI series starting on November 27. Although the main objective of the team is to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy (Test series), but the performance of limited overs series will definitely encourage the team.
Captain Virat Kohli will try to make the right combination for the 50-over match. If we look at the cricket program of the next year, due to the World Test Championship and T20 World Cup, the importance of ODI series is not much. The Indian team had earlier lost 3–0 in a one-day series in New Zealand.
Mayank was part of the team in all three matches in New Zealand but he failed to perform well with the bat. The team also has the option of Shubman Gill this time, in such a situation, Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri will decide on the SCG pitch and the Australian attack. Shastri was seen talking for a long time after Shubman’s batting session on Sunday. He later shared a photo with this Punjab batsman and wrote, “There is hardly any better thing than talking about this great game.”

Shubman and Mayank’s current form is almost the same. Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Shubman had scored 440 runs in the Indian Premier League while Mayank of Punjab scored 418 runs.
There are almost 8 players in the Indian ODI team, including Dhawan, captain Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jaspreet Bumrah. Mohammad Shami and Navdeep Saini can also be part of the team in fast bowling. If the team management decides to give a chance to Shardul Thakur, then one of the bowlers of Bumrah and Shami will be given rest.
