India have named full-strength team for the ODI series with Virat Kohli as captain. Opening batsman Rohit Sharma, who has been rested for Sri Lanka T20Is, has been named in India’s squad. Left-handed opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been included in the squad as well. In Dhawan’s absence, KL Rahul was handed the opening responsibility and he did well. It will be interesting to see at which position Rahul will bat with Dhawan’s inclusion in the playing XI.
Interestingly, the ODIs against India will be Australia’s first 50-over assignment after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
