Shubman, Vijay to replace Hardik, Rahul

Shubman, Vijay to replace Hardik, Rahul

Rayudu bowled just two overs, giving away 13 runs, in the ODI on Saturday, which India lost by 34 runs. The veteran could not opt for a review as it was unsuccessfully used up by Ambati Rayudu.

Sharma, who scored 133, was at the non-striker's end for both lbw dismissals. "Unfortunately, we couldn't go as per our plans", Rohit said in the video.

"We are always looking to use as much of the wicket and ball to our advantage", Behrendorff said as the teams arrived in Adelaide on Sunday.

"I think the way they rebuilt, Rohit and MS Dhoni, we knew they will take it deep and we managed to pick up the wickets at the right time".

"But we have got Rayudu, who has done really well now at No.4".

Sharma had mixed feelings about his ton.

India's Under-19 World Cup-winning batsman Shubman Gill was fast-tracked to the senior team and will be joining Virat Kohli & Co. on the tour of New Zealand.

Dhoni's 95-ball 53 included just four boundaries and many Indian fans felt he batted too slowly, allowing Australia to take control of the game.

Shubman Gill will join the Indian team in New Zealand where they will be playing five ODIs followed by three T20Is.

Sydney: Australia fended off an explosive century from Rohit Sharma to post a morale-boosting 34-run victory over India in the first one-day global in Sydney on Saturday.

"If I get a hundred I want to make sure that we win the game as well".

"With KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya set to return from Australia, the All-India Senior Selection Committee has made a decision to send all-rounder Vijay Shankar and batsman Shubman Gill as replacements", acting Indian Cricket Board secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a statement.

Rahul and Pandya were sent back home ahead of the first ODI against Australia in Sydney after they made "inappropriate comments" on Koffee with Karan, which is a TV talk show.

The case is no different with the 19-year-old Shubman as the right-hander nearly slept off before a storm of WhatsApp messages came his way, with news of his selection to the Indian team, brightening up the mood in the Gill household.
