WATCH: Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Ajinkya Rahane gear up for the 1st ODI against Australia

Team India is all set to take on Australia in the first ODI of the 5-match bilateral series in Chennai on September 17. Left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan will not be a part of the team for the first 3 ODI’s as he has been released by the BCCI to attend his wife Ayesha, who has not been keeping well. In Dhawan’s absence, it’s a good opportunity for Ajinkya Rahane to open the innings with Rohit Sharma.
