The Australian cricket team would have a tough job at hand in the upcoming ODI series against India as the visitors have already won the Test series for the first time in their history and are high on confidence right now.
Under the leadership of Aaron Finch, Australia would take the field without all-rounder Mitchell Marsh who has been ruled out of the first ODI after being hospitalized.
The 27-year-old is suffering from gastritis and has spent the last two days in the hospital. His condition is being monitored quite closely by the team management as they would take the final decision regarding his availability in the next few days.
Perth Scorchers batsman Ashton Turner has been called up as Marsh’s replacement for the first game as head coach Justin Langer feels that his ability to finish the innings might come in handy for the team.
