Cricket TV - Mr Predictor - Aus v Pak, Ind v WI Series Preview

With the World Cup now just a matter of months away, the Cricket World team look ahead to two One-Day International series that begin this week in India and the United Arab Emirates.

Pakistan take on Australia in a three-match series in the United Arab Emirates while India play the West Indies in a five-game clash at home.

Alastair Symondson and John Pennington assess how Pakistan will cope without Younus Khan (dropped), Mohammad Hafeez (injured) and Saeed Ajmal (suspended) against an Australia side that won the Twenty20 International comfortably.

However, they will also need to deal with not being able to call upon Michael Clarke, Shane Watson and Mitchell Marsh.

Meanwhile, India take on the West Indies who are without Chris Gayle (injured) and Sunil Narine (withdrawn) and have called up uncapped spinner Kuldeep Yadav to replace Ravichandran Ashwin who has been rested.

And although they are also missing Rohit Sharma through injury, they are heavy favourites to win the series...but do you think there could be an upset?
