#FakeitIndia: Ravi Shastri claims, loosing to Australia was part of experiments

No excuse no panic- Virat Kohli sees big

No excuse no panic- Virat Kohli sees big

As a rejuventated Usman Khawaja hit 383 runs at 76.60, helping turn the tide in Australia's 3-2 series victory over India; Peter Handscomb scored his maiden ODI ton and Ashton Turner threw his name up in lights with an effortless batting performance in Mohali.

Finch though, has been in a highly-publicised slump dating back to the Test series against India on home soil a year ago. He is now at the third place in the list of players scoring most centuries at home in global cricket alongside Hashim Amla. "We're playing well right now".

"They beat us in Australia, so to come back from those first couple of losses and win three in a row to win the series is a great feeling".

"When they sensed they had a foot in the door, they made sure they did not let us close the door in the series", said Kohli.

"It is going to be tough to pick the World Cup squad".

"But the fight that we showed, we've had our backs against the wall for quite a while now so I'm really proud of the group". Moving forward it doesn't matter.

"Aaron Finch remains under pressure but he's doing such a handsome job as captain uniting a team of so many fractured parts, that it would be folly to get rid of him at this stage", Craddock told Fox Sports News.

"We certainly thought it was a gettable target, they got away from us in the end, 15-20 more than what we could have kept them to. Hopefully, if we do that, everything else will take care of itself", he added.

Israel strikes in Gaza after rockets target Tel Aviv
Reports from inside the territory said sites around Khan Younis in the south of the Strip were among the first to be hit. The Israeli military says it has begun attacking sites in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket attack on Tel Aviv .

In the build-up to the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, India sought better results, especially in home conditions, but the series defeat may have shaken them up before a lengthy gap from global cricket during which members of the team will turn out for their franchises in the Indian Premier League beginning March 23.

His India counterpart Virat Kohli felt Australia played "exactly" how his team had played Down Under.

"Last three games, the idea was to give fringe guys some (game) time and see how they react". "Everyone was working really hard, having a lot of fun outside of it and during training and everything that goes with it".

"I think Jhye Richardson and Pat Cummins are shaping an incredible organization, they can likewise contribute with the bat". They are a very young side, very inexperienced side but they showed more heart and more confidence in pressure situations. It's nice to get runs but it always hurts when you don't win", he said."From a personal point of view it's huge.

He has passed 50 just once in his last 12 one-day innings.

"Although he's recently gone through a real tough time, if he can get through the other side of that before the World Cup, it could be - as hard as it sounds on him - it nearly could be flawless timing. They deserve all the credit in coming to India and winning", Katich told reporters here on Thursday.

Fox Cricket commentator Mark Waugh has been left dumbfounded after Australian selectors overlooked banned duo Steve Smith and David Warner for the final two ODI matches in the UAE.
