Ind vs Aus 1st ODI: India win toss, opt to bat first

Perth, Jan 12: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and decided to bat in the opening game of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series at the WACA Ground here on Tuesday.

Team India will look to get their combination right as they renew their fierce rivalry against a confident Australia here, marking the onset of a long limited-overs schedule stretching until the World T20.

The short limited overs series, including five ODIs and three T20 internationals, Down Under will initiate the Indian team's preparations for the marquee ICC World T20 scheduled in March-April. The T20 games will be played after the five ODIs, and Dhoni's boys would like to carry the momentum in the shortest format.

While India won both their warm-up games, a T20 and 50 over match each against the second string Western Australia XI, it is certainly not the best indicator of the kind of challenge they will face from Steve Smith's men.
