Australia Women are set to host India in a 3-match ODI series, with the first ODI kicking off on 21st September 2021 at Harrup Park, Mackay. The Indian side will aim to redeem themselves in Australia having lost against England 2-1 in the recent ODI series. The hosts, on the other hand, will aim to dominate their supremacy given their current form, whitewashing New Zealand 3-0 earlier this year.
The Australian side have been in great form off late and given their home advantage. they’d look forward to making the most of this series. Meg Lanning and Ashleigh Gardener are their top batters and have been in great form over the past few matches. Additionally, all-rounder Ellyse Perry and wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy should be must-haves in one’s fantasy team and are excellent captain choices.
The Indian side will look for some revival, having lost their recent ODI series against England. Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma and Mithali Raj are the top picks from the side. Additionally, with Harmanpreet Kaur being ruled out owing to a thumb injury, Deepti Sharma will be a key all-rounder for the side. Jhulan Goswami and Poonam Yadav’s contribution from the bowling end can also fetch good fantasy points.
