The final ‘Dress rehearsal’ before the World Cup, something like this could be India’s Playing XI
News of players Injury:
India got a big shock a day before the first ODI. Star wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been injured and doubts remain on his playing. In the right hand of Dhoni, injury took place during practice. Since then, Dhoni has not even been able to bat on the net. It is believed that Dhoni did not come for batting for the defensive and may be fully fit before the Hyderabad ODI, although there is no definitive news on this.
At the same time, Australia’s Shaun Marsh will not play the first one due to the hemstrings. Darcy Short has replaced Marsh as the cover for the ODI team.
