Rohit Sharma believes MS Dhoni should bat at number four for India, differing with captain Virat Kohli's preference for Ambati Rayudu. While this is a meagre return for a batsman of his stature, the worrying aspect is Dhoni's strike-rate of 71.42, which is remarkably lower than his ODI career strike-rate of 87.89. However, there is little doubt over his place in India's 15-member World Cup squad. "Personally asking, yes, I would be happy if he [Dhoni] bats at No. 4".

When asked about Jasprit Bumrah's absence, as the pacer has been rested for this series, Finch replied, "Bumrah has played a huge part for their one-day side, or all their sides".

According to a report in Quint, Indian Cricket team captain Virat Kohli said, "I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don't align with those views and those are purely individual views". "They play their own conditions very well but I think the amount of times they're winning away from home in the shorter formats is a credit to them".

Julián Castro Announces 2020 Presidential Run
Correspondents say Mr Castro does not have widespread name recognition and may struggle to make an impression in a crowded field. Even Castro's logo - which emphasizes the accent over the "a" in Julian - highlights the former mayor's heritage.

In the half-century at the SCG, his first since making 65 against Sri Lanka in December 2017, Dhoni faced 63 dot balls out of his 96 deliveries. Rohit Sharma was the only Indian batsman who tried to keep India in the match till last overs with his century.

"It's still enough time to get it right and make sure, come that World Cup, that we are ready to go with a really balanced and settled side", Finch said of the current series and five more ODIs in India in March.

Australia, the record five-time world champions, are also still reeling from the fallout of a ball-tampering scandal last March and the 12-month suspension of two of their best batsmen in Steve Smith and David Warner, while recent results have been awful. "Till then it was just bowlers dominating and hitting their lengths because we lost 3 wickets and we were under pressure to build the partnership so obviously that point we only decided that we have got to take the game forward and once we got the 100-run partnership the mindset changed and we chose to kick on and get 6-plus an over".

Witnesses said first responders had to break windows and use ladders to free passengers trapped on the upper deck of the bus. Amy Gagnon says officers worked through the night and identified the three victims and contacted their families.

"It's a good sign for us that he [Dhoni] showed he can come out and bat whenever the team wants him to bat". "We are still waiting for a decision to be made". "It's always tricky, when to take it and when not". I thought Jason handled his nerves brilliantly.

"What the Indians have achieved is big and they played well to win the series but it is also a fact that when Pakistan beat Australia one nil in UAE last Sept-Oct, I was not surprised at all".
