India has kicked off their Australian tour with a win in the 1st ODI of the series, beating the hosts by 5 wickets. The Indian team, led by Hardik Pandya in the absence of regular captain Rohit Sharma, won the toss and chose to field first.

Australia started their innings with Travis Head getting dismissed early, and none of the other batters could stand on the pitch for too long except Mitchell Marsh, who scored a brilliant 81 at a strike rate of 124.62. Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami led the Indian bowling attack, taking three wickets each. Australia was not able to complete their 50 overs and were all out for 188.

In response, India did not start their batting well, and Stoinis got Ishan Kishan out for just 3 runs. India kept losing wickets one by one, and Mitchell Starc was looking very good with the ball, taking three wickets for Australia.

However, India managed to bounce back and win the game by 5 wickets thanks to the outstanding performances of KL Rahul, who scored 75 runs, and Ravindra Jadeja, who contributed with 45 runs. Ravindra Jadeja also took two wickets and was awarded the Man of the Match award for his all-round performance.

It was a great start to the series for India, who showed their resilience in a challenging situation. They will look to carry this momentum forward and continue their winning streak in the upcoming matches of the series.

The absence of regular captain Rohit Sharma was felt, but Hardik Pandya stepped up to lead the team and did an excellent job. The Indian team will be hoping for Sharma’s return in the upcoming matches to strengthen their batting order further.

Overall, it was a great game of cricket, with both teams displaying their skills and determination. The series promises to be an exciting one, with both teams looking to come out on top.
