New Delhi: New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum feels India are clear favourites to win the home ODI series against Australia starting on Sunday.





"In their own conditions, India are surely a formidable opposition. They are incredibly well led by MS Dhoni and have got some very successful players in their ranks. Australia are a better team than what the Ashes result showed. But I still think India will win at home," McCullum told IANS before leaving for Dhaka where he leads his team against Bangladesh.

Former New Zealand fast bowler Simon Doull concurred with his compatriot.

"I think India are definitely better in the batting department. On the bowling front, both teams are fairly equal. I just don't see Australians getting enough runs on the board to win the series," the cricketer-turned commentator told IANS.

The seven match ODI series begins at Pune and will be preceded by a Twenty20 International at Rajkot Thursday.
