India announce squad for 3 ODIs against Australia

India announce squad for 3 ODIs against Australia”

India on Sunday recalled pacers Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav to the squad for the first three one-day internationals against Australia in the upcoming limited-over home series.

The BCCI has announced a 16 member squad for the first three ODIs against Australia.

"The ODI group has played spin pretty well for a little while".

In any case, the spin trio chosen against Australia will serve Virat Kohli well. He had said that the selectors had no "official" word from the player about his desire to play county cricket and the chance was a blessing in disguise for him ahead of the full series in England. The guys are learning and trying to improve. "But one-day wickets will not present spin as much as some of the Test wickets". We have to adapt. In all this, India A are also scheduled to play at some point, although how an eleven will be cobbled together, even in our great country of more than a billion people, in any meaningful manner, is a million-dollar question.

As the Australians held their first training session at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday morning, a line of fans outside snaked hundreds of metres around the perimeter of the ground, the passionate locals waiting patiently for tickets to go on sale at 10am local time. Looking back to the last one-day tour of India, I wasn't there in 2013, but it was a big run-fest on flat wickets. If he is called back after two games only, then the objective of sending him to get a proper county exposure is lost. His last ODI was against West Indies in June this year. "He has got some experience playing in these conditions in IPL".

"Zampa can show us what he is capable of", he said. Middle-order batsman Manish Pandey who scored his maiden half-century in the one-off T20I vs Sri Lanka in Colombo has been rewarded for his consistent outings with the bat. But India is playing against Australia and they should have picked both Ashwin and Jadeja. It's a good challenge for us.

Thus a majority of the India A players are likely to be unavailable for the Duleep final, including the likes of Priyank Panchal, R Samarth, Sudip Chatterjee, Ankit Bawne, Karun Nair, Pant, Shahbaz Nadeem, Gowtham, Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj.

The visitors from Down Under will be keen to put that behind them and redeem themselves with some good performances against India.

And what would Star, the broadcasters, make of India's finest taking time off from a tournament they just paid almost '16,500 crores to broadcast over the next five years?
