Ahead Of ODI Series Aussie Players Hails Legendary Keeper MS Dhoni

The 12th edition of the ICC World Cup will be jointly hosted by England and Wales and it will commence from May 30 and end on July 14, 2019.

He should be the least concerned about losing a place in India's World Cup XI in England a few months later but for Rohit Sharma, nothing comes easy and should not be taken for granted. Also with the bat, batting down the order, providing that finishing touch is very important.

"It's just an opportunity to see Alex play in a position he's done quite bit in Big Bash and one-day cricket", Finch told reporters on Friday, where he added that Peter Siddle would make his return to ODI cricket for the first time in eight years. He explained that the selection of players will be purely based on their form and nothing else.

"He has captained India for so many years and been successful".

"The squad that plays these 13 ODIs is more or less the same squad that will go to the World Cup".

"They've done really well for us, whether it's in India or outside India and one of the reasons I would say is MS". For him, the ODIs against Australia and New Zealand are very important, as he needs to assert his position as the terrific player that he is.

Talking about the ODI series, he said that those three bowlers -Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc- who were rested from the Australian squad, are their premier bowlers but they have got the guys who can do the job for them.

"With him (Dhoni) being around, there is calmness around the group". "He has played a massive role ever since the time he has left captaincy", he added. "His calmness and advice, what he thinks about the game and what we should do right now is very important", Rohit said.

Team India skipper Virat Kohli broke his silence on the ongoing controversy involving Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, who made sexist comments on a TV talk show. And one of the reasons for that is MS and how he has guided these two guys in the middle about how to keep things tight and field placements.
