Australia to feel selection heat after sobering ODI series loss to India

Australia to feel selection heat after sobering ODI series loss to India

"That's what the selectors have told me, that I need to score some runs so I'll have to do that if I want to get picked". The team really depends on the start that we give. I've always loved playing against this Australian team.

The series of course is done and dusted, India having won the first three ODIs.

Though IPL was his first competitive tournament after recovering from a serious thigh injury, he was amongst the runs in the Champions Trophy before he was rested for the following West Indies tour. He was the third highest run-getter in the series for the home side and was the second-highest six-hitter overall. Now only Sachin Tendulkar, with nine centuries, has scored more hundreds against Australia.

Rahane has been a stand-in opener for India, as Virat Kohli and the team management prefer to go with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan in limited overs cricket.

Commitment shown by OKC has been 'off the charts — Paul George
With rumors swirling about Westbrook potentially being swayed to leave in free agency next summer, people were rightfully nervous. Westbrook now joins two-time MVP Stephen Curry as the only players to have agreed to new contracts valued at $200-plus million.

However, once Rohit Sharma got into his groove, Rahane sat back and let his partner do what he does best. "We talk a lot in the middle, about when we need to take risk and when we need not". These are the little things that help build partnerships. He got awarded the bankable player of the series.

Rahane, who has also been in good form in this series, played a steady knock of 61 runs off 74 balls which included seven boundaries. "The last time we played here we chased down 350, so happy memories of the ground for us". Whoever has got the opportunity, has come in and performed.

He had put on 27 runs with James Faulkner (12) as India's tight bowling in late overs just didn't let the scoring rate get away, limiting the visitors to 52 runs for five wickets in the last 10 overs. Rahane scored consistently in the series.

"This team is solid and the future is bright". But his job was made just a touch easy by the bowlers responding well to another tough situation. MS Dhoni's premonition has been rendered true and he leads the ODI batting revolution, this ongoing series has served as a refreshingly hospitable, which can bring some benefit for the bowlers' rebellion. That is what these guys have done. The pitch looks very hard, we would've batted first as well but it shouldn't change much through the game. Bumrah bowls an in-cutter as stoinis goes for the flick but plays down the wrong line.
