Even since MS Dhoni has been away from international cricket, there have been several speculations about the former India skipper calling it quits. Recently the BCCI excluded him from the central contracts and this added fuel to the fire. As soon as the wicket-keeper batsman was excluded from the contract, #ThankYouDhoni began trending on social media.
Bangladesh will then return to Pakistan in April for the one-off ODI which will be played on April 3 and the second Test from April 5-9. Pakistan have also recalled the experienced duo of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik, along with pacer Shaheen Afridi for the T20I series.
During the second match between India and Australia hosted at the Saurashtra Cricket Association in Rajkot it was KL Rahul’s performance which stood out in the game. After losing the toss, India were put to bat first and KL Rahul scored 80 runs from 52 balls. He had also stepped into the shoes of Rishabh Pant who had been injured and the Karnataka batsman was quite impressive even with the gloves.
As far as Team India is concerned, changes are unlikely and can only be forced due to the injuries of Dhawan and Rohit. Dhawan was struck on the ribs while batting and did not field, and Rohit went down clutching his left shoulder after diving to save a boundary in the deep.
Pakistan is undoubtedly the stronger side of the two teams and will step into the upcoming game as favourites. They have already won the tournament twice in 2004 and 2006 and will eye to clinch their third title this time around.
After India registered a stunning victory against Australia in the second ODI at the Saurashtra Cricket Association in Rajkot, it was Shikhar Dhawan who made an appearance on Chahal TV. The BCCI channel was hosted by Yuzvendra Chahal but this time in his absence, it was Gabbar who hosted the show and took a hilarious jibe at the spinner and said, “Wo apne daant andar karwane gaya hai.”
India U19 side was exceptional in their warm-up matches as they first defeated Afghanistan U19 by 211 and then got the better of Zimbabwe U19 by 23 runs.
The top order of both India and Australia have enjoyed rich form. The same, however, cannot be said for the lower order which has struggled for runs. And therefore KL Rahul’s power knock of 80 from 52 deliveries becomes the most important innings in India’s 36-run victory at Rajkot. That aside the top batting order and the bowlers of both teams have been in fine form.
India and Australia have quality in every department, but the final game will be more about a test of nerves than skills. The Men in Blue will start as favourites considering they have momentum with them.
For a change, the world’s best no 3 – Virat Kohli – was batting at 3 again for India after the shocker in the 1st game. Kohli looked his old self back at his favourite position. He pulled, drove, lofted and smashed but Adam Zampa dismissed him again. The leg-spinner becoming the first-ever spinner to dismiss Kohli 5 times in ODI matches.
Dhawan was injured after being hit on the rib cage while batting. The left-hander did no't take the field in Australia's innings. However, reportedly Dhawan is doing fine and will be available for the next match.
