MS Dhoni India vs Australia 2019

MS Dhoni was injured in the nets

Finch has not scored a fifty in his last eight ODI innings, which would be a major worry for Australia ahead of their title defence at this year's World Cup in England and Wales.

Glen Maxwell's batting was instrumental in Australia's 2-0 Twenty20 series victory against India and he made 40 before losing his off-stump to Shami.

"If one or two players do not have a good IPL season, it doesn't mean that they are out of the picture for the World Cup". I am doing well and hence the team management has fixed that spot for me. And now getting a chance to win the match alongside him, it is a dream.

For Vijay Shankar, his bowling doesn't exactly inspire confidence but Hardik Pandya's dodgy fitness will keep him in the race and he can still claim for a second all-rounder's slot if Pandya is the first choice.

Saudi Arabia Oil Exports To US Nosedive
The IEA expects world oil demand to rise for at least the next 20 years, on target for 125 mmbbl per day by around mid-century. US crude output has set record highs for two straight weeks, hitting 12.1 million bpd last week, according to government data.


From the Men's team, India captain Virat Kohli, wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni, axed batsman Ajinkya Rahane and uncapped batsman Ajinkya Rahane were present at the occasion.

After a good show by the bowlers, India needed just 237 for victory in the series opener. Add to it, Jadhav's side-arm low off-breaks and the likes of Glenn Maxwell, D'Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis and Shaun Marsh may find it hard to negotiate the overs. Since then, India have swept three successive series at home. Before the all important five-match series, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), today unveiled the new team India jersey for both the men's and women's national cricket teams. Andrew Tye, the late replacement for the injured Kane Richardson, will like to use all the variations learnt during his stints with various IPL franchises. For the Australian bowlers, Adam Zampa and Nathan Coulter-Nile picked up 2 wickets each and gave away 49 and 46 runs respectively.

Rohit's departure for 37 compounded India's problems but Dhoni and Jadhav batted sensibly and did not panic even when the asking run rate climbed above six an over.

Match Starts at 1:30 pm (IST).
