KL Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane to be recalled to Team India

Bhuvneshwar Kumar Australia vs India 2018-19

Rohit Sharma and the rest of the Indian cricket team is back home in India after completing an nearly three month long tour of Australia and New Zealand that started in November. While he is expected to make a return sometime in the series against the Aussies, limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma could be sent to a break in the upcoming series.

According to a report from news agency PTI, the team management will also have a discussion on workload management of players. "But this IPL will be about monitoring the players, keeping the World Cup in mind", Shastri told Cricbuzz in an interview. Though the Aussies might play Pakistan in a short ODI series after touring India, it will be Men in Blue's last global assignment before the 2019 World Cup begins.

It will be interesting to see if Kohli, who was rested for the last two ODIs and the three T20Is in New Zealand, plays all five ODIs since the selectors may be tempted to try out a few back-up options. It would be interesting to see if Rohit Sharma gets a break as he too has been playing non-stop limited overs cricket recently.

Chelsea outline conditions under which Maurizio Sarri can still keep his job
Chelsea are set to stick with manager Maurizio Sarri despite alarmingly inconsistent results and the thrashing by Manchester City .

After losing their maiden Test and ODI series to India at home, Australia are set for a reciprocating tour of India starting February 24. Apart from them, the India openers, KL Rahul or even Ajinkya Rahane could return to the ODI setup. Hence, the frontline options in Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Mohammed Shami might not play in all the games.

These latest developments come in the wake of statements made by a chief selector who had said that Rahane and Pant are very much part of the World Cup ambitions and hence, this series could be the opportunity for both players to stake a claim. Moreover, he reckoned giving more game time to Rishabh Pant or Dinesh Karthik could solve the objective. We have certain plans in place and we'll be looking to follow them.
