Predicted Indian squad for Australia Tests

Predicted Indian squad for Australia Tests

Virat Kohli, who was rested for the Asia Cup, will resume his limited overs captaincy in the ODI series.

Karthik had played all six matches in the Asia Cup and scored 146 runs at an average of 48.66 but a strike rate of 71.21, only higher than MS Dhoni's (62.09) among Indian batsmen who batted at least twice in the tournament. Pant replaces the seasoned Dinesh Karthik in the 15-man squad.

Here are the updates of the India vs West Indies second test match in Hyderabad.

West Indies 94/6 at end of 2nd day's play of Rajkot Test
Deciding to bowl Kuldeep Yadav in the second test despite Ashwin running riot is a positive sign in Kohli in the captain. Perhaps, he was trying to check if he curbs certain strokes, how his game will shape up.


Shardul Thakur's much-awaited Test debut turned into a nightmare as the India speedster was forced to leave the field due to a groin strain after bowling only 10 deliveries on the first day of the second Test against West Indies on Friday.

Another surprise was the exclusion of both Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar who featured for India in the Asia Cup.

Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed, and Shardul Thakur have also been included in the Indian squad. "And we can take a call at appropriate time about who is the best among the two".

Banksy pulls off one of the greatest art pranks of all
Koukjian, who has met Banksy , said he is sure he caught a glimpse of the artist in the saleroom amid the confusion of the moment. It shows footage from the auction floor and the bewildered faces of the onlookers as the shredding device activates.


Windies have started their long tour of India that includes two Tests, five ODIs and three T20Is, in a losing cause after an innings defeat against the hosts only in three days. In Pant, India have a chance to not only trial a new wicketkeeper in ODIs but also an explosive batsman in the middle order.

The Indian selectors could have a bit of a headache selecting a fixed number of players in the Indian squad touring Australia for the four-match Test series, as they have faced a lot of criticism in the past for their team selection.

Jamal Khashoggi case: US intel heard Saudis discussing plot against journalist
According to the New York Times , officials in Istanbul believe he was killed on orders from the royal court of Saudi Arabia. I received an answer that further fueled my fears: Jamal had already left, they told me, possibly without my noticing.
