11:38 hrs IST: Good morning everyone and welcome to Outlook's live coverage of the 1st ODI between India Vs Australia, being held at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.

Ravi Shastri's team will be relying heavily on its pace attack consisting of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Navdeep Saini. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli could take up important roles in the batting order but will be up against the pace and guile of Mitchell Starc, who will be playing his first ODI after making his debut in India in October 2010.

For Australia, Pat Cummins, who is also the IPL's costliest foreign acquisition will lead a pace attack consisting of Kane Richardson and Starc, who last played an IPL game in India in 2015. Starc and Cummins have plenty knowledge of Indian conditions and much of India's performance will depend on how the batsmen deal with this fearsome Aussie duo.

India also have a selection dilemma between Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul, although Kohli had earlier suggested that both could start with the captain going down the order. If current form is considered, then Rahul could be the one partnering Rohit, but Dhawan's record in international colors can't be ignored, especially since his century had won India the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup fixture against the Aussies.

"It's a good dilemma to have. Rohit is an obvious choice of course. Both of them Shikhar and Rahul are playing well. Shikhar has done well in ODIs (and) Rahul is in great form. The management will sit down and make the choice. I don't see it as an issue and one of them will have to sit out, so that's okay," batting coach Vikram Rathour had said on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the young charismatic Marnus Labuschagne will be the man to watch in the Australian batting line-up that is studded with plenty of experience and power. Labuschange is in great form and it will worth seeing how he handled the Indian attack in Mumbai's humid conditions.

The match could be a run fest. Since 2013, India and Australia have met 28 times. There have been 25 scores in excess of 300 (14 by Australia and 11 by India). There have been eight scores above 350 and on three occasions, totals above 350 have been chased down, according to ESPNCricinfo. The average first-innings score is 304.
