Here are Guy Giles' best cricket tips for the first ODI match between Australia and India in Sydney on Friday.


India to win

Australia are a formidable ODI side at home, but this looks a good enough price to back the visitors.

Virat Kohli’s side have won 12 of their last 15 bilateral ODI series, including their last tour to Australia two years ago, so look a decent bet to get off to a winning start.

Steve Smith to score 50+

After a difficult IPL, Smith is suffering one of the stickiest spells of form of his career.

It is just 10 months since he scored 98 and 131 in consecutive ODIs against India, though, and he is too good a player for that kind of form to be far away.

KL Rahul to score over 31.5 runs

If he wasn’t there already, Rahul announced himself as one of the world’s leading batsmen in the recent IPL.

He has passed this mark in six of his last eight ODI innings, too, including scores of 102, 88* and 112.

Jasprit Bumrah to be India’s top wicket-taker

Bumrah is another man who need only pick up where he left off in the IPL to star here.

The seamer took at least three wickets in three of his last four appearances in that competition, and bowls both with the new ball and at the death, when wickets are most likely to fall.
