India vs Australia 1st ODI: Virat Kohli and Co. look to start World Cup preparations on a high in Sydney

Hit hard by an unexpected controversy after the high of the Test triumph, India will look to fine-tune their World Cup preparations in the three-match ODI series against an under-fire Australia, beginning here on Saturday.

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul has provided a big distraction for the Indian team by making "inappropriate" comments on women during a TV show. In the build-up to the first ODI, skipper Virat Kohli underlined that the team management is still waiting for a decision to be made regarding a ban or punishment to be meted out to the two players.

The team management didn't announce a shortlist for this game, as is now the norm, and will wait to hear from the BCCI on the two players' availability. Considering the enormity of this developing situation, it is unlikely that both Pandya and Rahul will be available for at least the first ODI.
