India and Australia will meet in a three-match ODI series, starting on March 17th. The first game will happen in Mumbai. Here, we look at the pitch report of Wankhede Stadium and the weather conditions in Mumbai for IND vs AUS 2023.
Australia and India are two top sides in ODI cricket right now. They will also be two favourites to lift the 2023 ODI World Cup. Therefore, the upcoming series will be interesting for the fans and will be important for both teams to review their current status against a good side.
India will have some holes to fill before the World Cup. The spin department is one area that the team must concentrate on. The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal have been in poor form and it needs to be seen if Kuldeep Yadav can maintain his consistency. On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja is likely to return to the ODI setup and this might force a change in the combination. These will be the subplots for India during the series.

The average score batting first on this venue is 247. Considering that Wankhede is a good stadium for the batters, we can expect the captains to win the toss to field first.
Sanath Jayasuriya‘s 151* in 1997 is the best batting performance on this venue while Murali Kartik’s 6/27 in 2007 is the best bowling display here.

The chance of precipitation is 10%. Hence, no rainfall is expected for this game that will happen this Friday. This will be good news for the fans.
