Melbourne: Australia cricket captain Michael Clarke on Saturday declared his team as the favourites to win the ODI tri-series but conceded that it will have to produce its best to nail down world champions India in the opening game at Melbourne on Sunday.
The series features Sri Lanka as the third team.
"We have to play at our best to beat both these teams. They were both in the final of most recent world cup. We're the number one one-day team in the world so I'd like to think we are favourites," Clarke said today ahead of the opening match.
