The Indian team led by Rohit Sharma is now concentrating on getting ready for the 2023 ODI World Cup, which is scheduled to be contested in India in October and November. They recently lost to Australia at the Oval in London in the second World Test Championship final by a huge margin of 209 runs.
India has just six announced ODI matches left to concentrate on its selections and team building with a mere four months until the main event. India will host Australia for three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in September after playing three games versus West Indies in July-August. Although the Asia Cup in the ODI format is planned for September, the specific dates and locations have not yet been determined.
India should have contested 12 ODI matches leading up to this year’s World Cup if it were successful in winning the Asia Cup. Since winning the World Cup at home in 2011, India has been competing for its first title. The team lost in the semifinals against Australia in 2015 and at the same stage to New Zealand in 2019.
Australia is also not leaving any stone unturned in their attempt to go for their sixth World Cup title. In September, the five-match series between South Africa and Australia will serve as a good contest for the men’s ODI World Cup. The matches are a part of Australia’s eight-game limited-overs trip, which starts in late August with three Twenty20 Internationals in Durban. This will be the new T20 captain’s first assignment after Aaron Finch retired from international play. This series has been scheduled before the India-Australia series in mid–September.
There are not going to be any Test matches on this tour, which merely prepares for the Test series that was postponed in early 2021 after Australia withdrew due to worries over Covid-19. According to the most recent FTP, it is going to be eight years until Australia plays a Test match in South Africa; the next tour is set for 2026.

I still feel Arshdeep should have been included in the ODI Squad for WI. In the absence of both Shami & Bumrah, this series could have been a decider of who would be the standby pacer (15+3)- Arshdeep or Umran.
Selecting Unadkat in ODIs over Arshdeep (if fit) makes little sense.
