Australian are playing their first ODI match of this year and played only three matches last year. Their last ODI series came in Jul 2021, where they beat West Indies away by 2-1. They have won all of their last three ODI series and rank 3rd in ICC ODI teams chart, just 5 points behind leaders New Zealand.
Australian side have rested their key players David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, and Josh Hazlewood for this series. Star all-rounder Mitchell Marsh suffered a hip injury yesterday which ruled him out of this series. Former skipper Steven Smith also suffered an elbow injury and will miss the entire tour.

Gaddafi stadium pitch is excellent for the fast bowlers and that will definitely hurt Australian side who are without their star pace trio Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, and Josh Hazlewood. Batsmen can rely on middle overs to score big runs but we can’t expect a score of 280 plus runs while batting first.
