India will be high on confidence after thrashing Sri Lanka 5-0 in the ODIs recently. Australia, on the other hand will be expected to come hard at the hosts after drawing the 2-Test series against Bangladesh. Both teams have a few injury concerns to look after.

For India, Akshar Patel has been replaced by Ravindra Jadeja for the first 3-ODIs, while Australia have called in Peter Handscomb to cover for Aaron Finch.

It is expected to be a high-scoring affair at Chennai given the nature of the track. There was some overnight rain but forecast for the day is quite pleasant. The ODI will be followed by a 3-T20I series as well.
