Oz call up Handscomb as cover for Finch

After a gruelling and successful season a year ago, many key players from team India faced time on the sidelines.

Australia have added batsman Peter Handscomb to their squad for the upcoming ODI series against India as a cover for opener Aaron Finch. "Whenever I get the opportunity I want to be there on the field". The best way to put him under pressure is through disciplined bowling. As soon as I have stepped back in, I have got runs. "The follow-up ball remains the key", Gillespie was quoted as saying. If there is movement off the wicket or in the air, then the edge comes into play. "It's about getting him out of his comfort zone".

The visitors spilled four straight-forward catches in their match against Board President's XI on Tuesday, with Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell as well as Travis Head and Adam Zampa the guilty parties.

While Bhajji has backed India to win the ODI series, he says it will not be a walk in the park for the Men in Blue like in Sri Lanka. But the opener will remain with the squad with hopes of playing in the later part of the series. "Let us just respect the fact that we are human beings without putting anyone down", Harbhajan said exclusively to India Today. "I am not too concerned about the differences with Kohli".

"Hopefully, we can keep him quiet as much as possible in this series".

The first ODI takes place on Sunday in what will be a packed MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

India squad (first three ODIs): Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.
