Kolkata: Former captain Sourav Ganguly believes India will win the upcoming five-match ODI series against Australia but said that a 5-0 whitewash is unlikely against the visitors.  “At home, India will be very tough to beat. India will win but 5-0 (like against Sri Lanka) may not be possible as Australia are a strong side,” Ganguly said here.

He hailed the selectors’ rotation policy, saying: “They (selectors) want to assess the youngsters. It's a good move looking ahead to the World Cup 2019. We have enough time to prepare. Everyone will get a chance, that's what you need in a team building.”

The ODI series begins with the opening match on Chennai on September 17. Ganguly said it’s still not over for one of India’s best match winners Yuvraj Singh who was overlooked for the upcoming Australia series. “Yes, he can make a comeback if he fights. why not, nothing is over till it’s actually over,” Ganguly added.
