After the two KFC T20Is, Australia and India meet again tomorrow at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in the first ODI of the Commonwealth Bank Tri-Series. The match will start at 14:20 local Melbourne time which is 03:20 GMT and 08:50 in IST. India are of course the World Champions and this will be their first big Test to show that they are indeed the best in this format of the game.
India will be boosted with the presence of Sachin Tendulkar in its squad. Zaheer Khan also is the squad which will trouble the Australian top order like in the Test Series. Australia has a slightly new look to its squad with new comers like Peter Forrest, Daniel Christian and Wicket Keeper Matthew Wade. The batting will depend on the trio of Ricky Ponting, Skipper Michael Clarke and Michael Hussey.
