The indian team won the first two matches against the Australian team. Shocking news awaits the fans who were excited by the news that rohit sharma and Virat Kohli, who were rested for the third ODI, are going to return to the team. Many in the indian team are suffering from viral fever. So the fact that they won't play is out. There are only 12 players on the team. A player named mukesh Kumar has been included in the team as the 13th.
What is happening? : The indian team is preparing for the world cup series. Before that, the indian team is participating in the australia ODI series in which not only the players who have been included in the indian world cup team but also the substitutes are being prepared. Ashwin, Prasith Krishna, and Rudraj Gaekwad, who were not included in the world cup squad, have also participated in this series. Veterans Virat Kohli, rohit sharma, hardik pandya, and spinner kuldeep yadav were rested in the first two matches to accommodate out-of-form players like Shreyas Iyer, suryakumar yadav and shardul thakur to prove their form. Currently rested players returned to the team. In fairness, the team should have more than 18 players for the third ODI against Australia. But there are only 12 players. A player named mukesh Kumar has been called temporarily as there is not enough man in the team. He should play in the Asian Games. However, he has been included as an additional player on the team.
Why this situation? : Speaking about this, rohit sharma said that some players in the team have viral fever. Also, hardik pandya, Shami, and Shubman Gill have gone to spend time with their families ahead of the world cup series and they will not be able to go home for 50 days if they miss this opportunity. Next, Washington Sundar, who has qualified for the Asian Games, should be sent to China. But due to a lack of men, bcci has decided to play him. Bumrah, who went home before the second match due to Shami's absence, returned to the team within two days. Without this two players were injured in the second match. One of them is Shreyas Iyer. Apart from them, rohit sharma mentioned that some people have a fever. Apart from the players mentioned above, there are only 13 players in the squad. Moreover, he did not say who had the viral fever. In this situation, certainly, some of the indian team players who have a fever will not be fully on the field in the third ODI. The team does not even have the man to field substitutes in their place. This is the current situation of the indian team. A report is doing the rounds that bcci is going to invite local players who practice at the rajkot ground to the field.
