Five Notable Absentees for India in the Limited Overs Series Against Australia
After an interesting tour of Sri Lanka, team India is gearing up for the limited overs series against Australia and given their strong run in the recent past; it won’t be a surprise if they win the series convincingly.
Though India is well aware of the fact that the scenario won’t be the same like it was against Sri Lanka, still they will go into the series as clear favourites despite the omission of some star players.
Suresh Raina continued to face the axe while Yuvraj Singh was overlooked for the second consecutive time. Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin was also rested for the first 3 ODIs.
Meanwhile, Amit Mishra, who performed brilliantly in his last series last year and was the Man of the Series, is still not considered for selection.
Here are 5 Players who missed out the cut for the first 3 ODI’s against Australia.
The southpaw after making a sensational comeback earlier in the year has faced a slump in the form in the last few months which has led to his ouster from the team. Though the selectors conceded that Yuvraj is in the scheme of things and was rested for the series; given India’s tremendous fitness agility it is certain that Yuvraj can’t be in the future scheme of things.
Barring a half-century in the Champions Trophy, Yuvraj failed miserably and then went on to perform pretty poorly in West Indies which led to his omission from the Sri Lanka tour. He would like to feel that he still has some cricket left in him and if that is the case, then you can’t rule out another comeback provided he is a fighter.
