  1.        MS Dhoni

MS Dhoni is one of the greatest finishers in One day International cricket. After his retirement from Test cricket the main focus for MS Dhoni will be to fine tune his skills for the tri series and know the combination he will go with. Coming at six down he makes the bowler think and creates panic among the bowlers. This Indian team will look for MS Dhoni to regain his form in this tri series. He has not played One day international cricket since last 2 months.  Despite that he can surprise everybody in shorter format. 

  1.        Eoin Morgan

Eoin Morgan, who was named the captain for the tri series replacing Alastair Cook, needs to play a big role. He is known to be big hitter in shorter formats.

With pitches in Australia be helpful for pacers? The tri series will go a long way in answering those doubts. His bowling in Test matches has been outstanding. He needs to bowl at good line and lengths to unsettle the batsmen.

  1.        David Warner

David Warner is one of the dangerous batsmen in One day internationals. He gives the Australian team quick fire starts that help the team to pile up a huge score. He can hit all the shots in book to unsettle the bowling. In the Test series against India he gave quick fire starts to help the Australian team huge scores in the first innings. Warner role in tri series is the same, to give a solid start to the team.
