The first ODI will take place on Sunday at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane. <p></p> <p></p>Australia s hopes were dashed when Meg Lanning was ruled out for the entire summer due to broken shoulder. However, Rachel Haynes is all set to lead the pack of young girls. <p></p> <p></p>Australia came good in the practice match. Their middle-order batter <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/elyse-villani" target="_blank">Elyse Villani</a> was in top-form bringing up a century in the final practice match. Villani had also cracked 139 for Western Australian against South Australia in Women's National Cricket League (WNCL) last week. <p></p> <p></p>Ahead of the big clash, Villani has issued a warning to her opponents, as she would be maintaining her fearless approach in the Ashes as seen in the recently concluded World Cup. <p></p> <p></p> It always has to be in my mindset. If I think any differently I get myself into some strife. I like to bat attackingly. I know it's not going to come off every time but I also know that it's my role within the team, Villani told <i>cricket.com.au</i>. <p></p> <p></p>With Lanning not in the side and six debutants added to the squad, the Australian think-tank would want to bring an all-rounder to the side. In that case, Villani might move up the batting line-up. <p></p> <p></p>However, the all-rounder is up for any challenge coming her way, I've opened a lot in my career to date (15 innings for Australia) and bat No.3 with the Western Fury, so the new ball I'm used to it in some aspects. However, wearing a different uniform today and opening I had a good time. I feel mentally ready and I feel prepared and I guess that's all you can be, added Villani.
