3 match ODI series to be played between India and Australia
The first ODI will be played on March 17
New Delhi. After a strong victory in the 4-match Test series against Australia, the Indian cricket team will now play in ODIs. The 3-match ODI series is going to start from March 17. The first match will be played at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium but local hero captain Rohit Sharma will not play the match due to personal reasons. During the series against Australia, there will be an eye on such a bowler whose dangerous bouncer had cost the life of a batsman.
The 3-match ODI series against Australia is considered important because of the preparation of the Indian team for the ICC World Cup. Team India will host the tournament at its home this year and it is being considered as a contender to win the title. For Team India in the ODI series against Australia, there is a need to be careful with each and every player but fast bowler Sean Abbott will also have to be avoided.
New South Wales fast bowler Sean Abbott has been given a place in the ODI series against India. If he is included in the playing eleven, then Indian batsmen will have to be careful of his dangerous bouncer. During a domestic match in 2014, Australia’s star batsman Phil Hughes was hit on the neck by a bouncer from Sean Abbott. This bouncer was so dangerous that he got injured and fell on the ground there.
Hughes was immediately admitted to a nearby hospital. This incident happened during the match on 24 November. Hughes lost the battle of death after being in a coma for 3 days in a Sydney hospital. Sean Abbott made a comeback emerging from the shock of the death of the star cricketer from his own country. This bowler, who has played 8 ODIs for Australia, has taken 9 wickets.
