India captain MS Dhoni is expecting Australia to play with an aggressive approach in the upcoming seven-game ODI series.

India skipper MS Dhoni has predicted that Australia will play aggressively in the upcoming one-day international series.

Dhoni, who hit the winning runs as India triumphed in the Twenty20 match between the two sides on Thursday, believes that the Aussies have a lot to "play with" in their side.

"They bat up to number nine," he told Bcci.tv. "That's why in the T20 game they were not too concerned about losing wickets and adopted an aggressive approach. They wanted to increase the pace.

"They have got quite a few bowlers who can bat and batsmen who can bowl, that way they have more bowlers to play with. So if it is tough on one bowler, there is someone else to take the responsibility."

The two sides will meet in the first of seven one-dayers in Pune on Sunday.
