India vs Australia 2019 ODIs: Australia head coach Justin Langer seemed to have lost his cool when asked why Glenn Maxwell was not picked in the four-match Test series against India. A journalist asked Langer during a press conference if there were any issues between the two and that it may have led to his non-selection. When Langer asks him, ” Do you really think it happened?” The journalist said you are in a better position to answer that. But all in all, it does not look like the hosts are in the right frame of mind heading into the three-match ODI series starting January 12.
Earlier, Australia lost for the first time in 71 years to an Asian team in their den. Kohli’s India beat Australia 2-1 to clinch the Test series. It was history created as Australian skipper Paine admitted that they were outplayed.
In an interview to ANI, Rohit said, “Over the years we’ve seen the kind of presence he has in dressing room & on field. With him being around, there’s calmness around the group, it’s also a bit of a help to the captain, also going down the batting order & that finishing touch is very important.”
He also spoke about the composition for the World Cup next year, he said that squad will look very much the same as will be for the upcoming ODIs in Australia and New Zealand, which also means MS Dhoni is very much on for that. “More or less you’ll see the same squad playing the World Cup,there’ll be one or two changes keeping in mind form&injury concerns over next few months.But I don’t see any drastic change in the squad.But I still feel everything will depend on form of each player,” he added.
