While India have retained the same team that hammered Sri Lanka, the Aussies have introduced a few youngsters into their squad for this series and it will be interesting to see how they progress.

The Journalist posted a picture of Virat Kohli cleaning the cricket stadium (as part of a promotional move to promote the part of Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan last year) on Twitter and captioned it, "Sweepers clean the stadium in readiness for the World XI match".

Australia have called up wicketkeeper-batsman Peter Handscomb as a cover for injured opener Aaron Finch for the upcoming five-match One-day International (ODI) series in India, starting here on Sunday. "Whenever there is an opportunity, I want to be on the field". The best way to put him under pressure is through disciplined bowling. "The follow-up ball remains the key", Gillespie was quoted as saying.

"Maybe they can bowl on the stumps with two catchers on the on-side".

"It is a hard-fought contest playing against India", he said. "Whenever we play a series we have to make sure that the guys are 100 per cent fit and the trainers take care of that", he added. "I am not too concerned about the differences with Kohli".

Weiner's lawyers cite 'remarkable progress' in probation request
But when BuzzFeed News spoke with them before the election , both she and her father said they did not support Donald Trump . Weiner ran for mayor of New York City in 2013, a bid scuttled by a similar sexting scandal.


The first ODI will be played on Sunday in Chennai.

Whichever way you want to look at it, both teams are pretty much evenly matched and even though India are slight favourites to win the series, we can expect some high octane action.

Australia ODI squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa.

The 30-year-old Victorian is expected to miss the first three ODIs.
