New Delhi, Jan. 12 -- Live Cricket Updates India vs Australia, 1st ODI: Hello and welcome to our live blog of the 1st ODI between India vs Australia from the Sydney Cricket Ground. India will look to keep the off-field controversies behind their back and start the three-match ODI series on a positive note. Losing Hardik Pandya on the eve of the first ODI is a big blow but if Virat Kohli's words are anything to go by, the team is confident that Ravindra Jadeja can seamlessly slot into the side as the all-rounder. Australia have already announced their side with three pacers and Nathan Lyon doing the spinners role but India have refrained from doing so on the eve of the game.
