After India’s historic 2-1 triumph in Test series against Australia, the spotlight has now shifted to the ODI-leg of the tour Down Under. The Test specialists might have had opted for a break in their training sessions, but ODI specialists MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu, and Shikhar Dhawan were seen sweating in the nets ahead of the limited-overs fixtures.
With only a few days to go for the first ODI match in Sydney, team India seems to be leaving no stone unturned in their practise sessions. MS Dhoni was seen polishing his batting skills and was also involved in a long chat with the batting coach Sanjay Bangar.

Shikhar Dhawan, who was looked over for the Test squad, was also seen sweating it out along with fellow mate Ambati Rayudu. A lot of India’s success in the ODI series (ICC World Cup 2019) will depend on how these batsmen perform.
Here’s the latest pics of Indian team practising ahead of Australia ODI Series 2019:
