This week on The Cricket Pod, co-hosts Paul Radley and Chitrabhanu Kadalayil talk about the India-Australia one-day international series currently under way in the subcontinent.

Regardless of what happens in the go-for-broke final ODI in Delhi on Wednesday, Australia have raised their game in 50-over cricket despite the absence of the suspended Steve Smith and David Warner.

Will Pakistan then find it difficult to beat the Australians in this month's five-match ODI series, starting in Sharjah on March 22? And has the absence of Smith and Warner been good for Aaron Finch and company in the context of the upcoming Cricket World Cup?

Listen here to find out:

Also in this episode:

  • UAE's Ahmed Raza explains how he and Imran Haider will help Australia prepare for Pakistan's spin attack.
  • Coach Dougie Brown talks about the busy month ahead for the UAE, starting with a series against the US.
