Australia in India too Close to Call
Fresh off the back of 2-1 ODI series victory against England the Australia one-day side are gearing up for a seven-game tour of India to kick start their summer.
Captain Michael Clarke has been named subject to fitness by coach Darren Lehmann, while Brad Haddin is back in the side and Mitchell Johnson get the nod after fruitful performances against the English this September. Clarke is suffering from chronic back pain, however, and with the next Ashes series just a few months away is expected to miss most of the tour.
Having won nine of their last 12 completed games this Aussie team don’t exactly require Clarke, although he could be useful against a rampant India ODI outfit.
Both teams are on form; separating India and Australia in the cricket betting odds will be difficult for many punters. A developing Virat Kohli-led team has just breezed past Zimbabwe and the team have lost just five ODIs all year.
