India vs Australia 2019 Free Live Cricket Streaming: After the T20 series debacle, the five-match ODI rubber will be India’s last chance to fine-tune their skills ahead of the showpiece 50-over event in England & Wales, starting on May 30. For India, this also means finding the best possible way to give as much game time as possible to those who they view as reserves – players 12 to 15 in the 15-man squad in England.  The team is slowly moving into the World Cup mode and even a 0-2 loss in the just-concluded T20 series won’t see any shift in plans as far as skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri are concerned. “Every team will look to fine-tune whatever they need to before the World Cup, and we’ll keep doing that in the ODI series too, but we still want to win every match we play,” skipper Kohli said after the Bengaluru T20 loss headlining his intention.

There will be at least four players for whom the series will be like a ‘pre-test’, a good score ensuring that they get ‘admit cards’ for the board exams. The four players in question are KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar and Siddarth Kaul, who are fighting for two available slots in that UK bound 15-member squad. One man who will be keenly tracking the developments from the sidelines will be Dinesh Karthik, who still, many believe, has an outside chance of making it to the team.
