The Indian team has been announced for the first two matches of the three ODI series against Australia. Wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul will take on the role of captain of the Indian team. Additionally, Ravi Ashwin has returned to the Indian ODI team. However, players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, regular captain of the Indian team, will not feature in the first two games. However, after announcing Team India’s squad for the Australia series, Rohit Sharma expressed his views.
Rohit Sharma said we are trying our best. Our aim is to ensure that everyone has opportunities. Because we know that we cannot build up bench strength if we continue to play with the same eleven. The Indian captain also said that there will be 11 matches in the upcoming World Cup, we have to keep that in mind. Rohit Sharma actually believes that more and more players should be given the opportunity to build a strong bench.
The Indian team will play a series of 3 ODI matches against Australia. Rohit Sharma will not play in the first two games of this series. Rohit Sharma, on the other hand, will return in the third part of this series. At the same time, all-rounder Akshar Patel will also be absent from the first two matches of the India-Australia series. But if he gets fit, he can be part of the playing XI in the third ODI. Actually, Team India all-rounder Akshar Patel is not completely fit. For this reason, he was not part of Team India’s eleven in the Asia Cup final against Sri Lanka.
