Rohit Sharma and the rest of the Indian cricket team is back home in India after completing an nearly three month long tour of Australia and New Zealand that started in November. In the quest to maintain the balance, the BCCI selectors could rest a few of the star players; including Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, as per reports.

India's Test Vice-Captain Ajinkya Rahane and opener KL Rahul could be recalled to India's One Day International (ODI) squad for the upcoming home series against Australia as Indian selectors are now looking at testing out a few more players leading up to the World Cup.

Warren wondered if the candidates and press would undyingly focus on Trump's tweets and "dark and ugly" statements every day. She's apologised for claiming Native American identity on multiple occasions early in her career.

The stand-in Indian skipper is now back in India for a while and looks like he's enjoying the time off in the company of his baby daughter.

"Workload management of the senior players will definitely be the main area of discussion as we all know that the Indians have been on the road and the selectors and team management have made a conscious effort to ensure that the players get ample rest between games and series".

The former Stoke City man was also incredible at saving penalties. "Will be very sadly missed". Thinking especially of Ursula, Julia, Wendy and Robert.

Two wicket-keeper-batsmen Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant will have an acid test in the Australia series since both are in the race for a berth in India's squad for the World Cup.

It will be interesting to see if Kohli, who was rested for the last two ODIs and the three T20Is in New Zealand, plays all five ODIs since the selectors may be tempted to try out a few back-up options. Hence, the frontline options in Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Mohammed Shami might not play in all the games. Also, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav could be in for a break at some point in the series.

While the selectors' discussion with Shastri after the team's return is going to be pivotal, the selectors just can not ignore the fact that the rigorous Indian Premier League is to be played just before the World Cup. We have certain plans in place and we'll be looking to follow them.
