Bangalore, Sep 28 (UNI) Fresh from the Twenty-20 World Cup triumph, M S Dhoni led Team India will take on world champions Australia in a day-night ODI match here tomorrow.

Leading the team for the first time in a seven-match ODI series at home, a confident Dhoni said the team would get additional strength from the big three--Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly -- besides spinner Harbajan Singh.

However, after their semifinal loss to India in Twenty20 World Cup, the Aussies are aiming for a victory, banking on their past performance in India and high success rate in the ODIs.

The Australian Team has suffered a set back as the visitors are dogged by injuries.

Captian Ricky Ponting, Mike Hussey and Shane Watson are unlikely for tomorrow's match due to injuries.

While fast bowler Shaun Tait has been excluded from the squad due to injury, another speedster Nathan Bracken would join the squad later as he is in Australia, celebrating the birth of his first child.
