New Delhi: The ICC Cricket World Cup in England is just five months away but it seems Australia, the five-time and defending champions have decided that this is the time for a total overhaul in their ODI side. The squad picked in the three-match series against India has included some surprise picks and omissions. The squad sees the return of Peter Siddle, who last played an ODI against Sri Lanka in Sydney in 2010, along with Nathan Lyon and Usman Khawaja. Lyon, who is primarily Australia’s gun bowler in Tests, has played just 15 ODIs and last played in the format during the series in England in which Australia were whitewashed 5-0.The likes of D’Arcy Short, Ben McDermott, Ashton Agar and Chris Lynn have all been dropped while the fast bowling trio of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood has all been rested. In a statement released by Cricket Australia, chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns said key players had not capitalised on their chances. “Travis Head, D’Arcy Short and Chris Lynn have had opportunities to cement their spots, but unfortunately, they have not been as productive as we would have liked in recent times when playing ODI cricket for Australia. With a focus on improving our ability to post competitive totals we’ve recalled Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb and Mitch Marsh to the squad. Usman is a batsman we know can put vital runs on the board at the top of the order, and Peter is not only a fine player of spin bowling, he’s also a batsman we know can hold an innings together while keeping the scoreboard ticking over,” Hohns said.Read More | Virat Kohli booed in Sydney Test, Ricky Ponting calls it an ‘absolute disgrace’Siddle played in the Domestic One-Day competition and managed to take nine wickets in seven games for Victoria. Khawaja has not played ODIs for Australia since the series against Pakistan. The dropping of Lynn has evoked mixed response. The Queensland right-hander failed in the series against South Africa, managing scores of 15,44 and 0. However, in the Big Bash League, he blasted 84 for the Brisbane Heat against the Sydney Sixers at the Carrara Oval. Short has underperformed in four ODIs while in the Twenty20 series against South Africa, he did not gain much success.Read More | Pujara slams third ton in series, gives India decisive advantageThe heavy workload of Cummins, Hazlewood and Starc in the Test series against India sees them getting rested for the ODIs but Australia have suffered a jolt with Nathan Coulter-Nile, their other pace option, being rested after complaining of back soreness in the Big Bash League for Perth Scorchers.Australia play three ODIs against India, starting on January 12, with the remaining matches being played on January 15 and January 18. Following the end of the ODI series, Australia play Sri Lanka and then could embark on ODI tours to India and the UAE against Pakistan. The series against Pakistan could see the return of David Warner and Steve Smith following the end of their one-year ban imposed on them following the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town.Australia squad for India ODI seriesAaron Finch (c), Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey (wk), Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Peter Siddle, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
Global Gaming adds sportsbook extension to Ninja property August 25, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit ‘Deal maker’ Rafi Ashkenazi ends Flutter tenure August 27, 2020 Soft2Bet continues new market drive with Irokobet launch August 26, 2020 Related Articles Share Share Eight gambling operators, including Flutter Entertainment and GVC Holdings, have fallen foul of Spelinspektionen after it was revealed that the operators had been offering betting markets on events where the majority of the players were under the age of 18.Bet365, GVC, The Stars Group, Flutter Entertainment, Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), Bethard Group, Casinostugan Limited and Polar limited had all received both a warning, and subsequent penalty fees, which have amounted to SEK41.2m (£3.5m).Hillside ENC – which holds the Swedish licence for bet365 – was among the operators that faced the highest penalty after being hit with a penalty fee of SEK10m. TSG Interactive, which holds the license for pokerstars.se, pokerstarscasino.se, fulltilt.se and betstars.se, was faced with the same penalty. Betfair International, which holds a license for its betfair.se site, was hit with a penalty fee of SEK5.5m (£467,000), while Bethard Group – which operates a number of betting brands including bethard.se, inandoutbet.com, scandibet.com and fastbet.com – was handed a SEK2.5m penalty.Katarina Abrahamson, Coordinator against match fixing at The Swedish Gambling Authority, told SBC that the fines have been issued by the regulator in a bid to ‘protect’ underage players from the influence of gambling. The infractions, which Abrahamson has described as a ‘serious breach’ of Swedish law, have led the gaming operators to implement various measures in ensuring that future betting takes place in accordance with the country’s gaming laws, for example by not offering games on U19 and U21 series.Abrahamson explained that Swedish law strictly prohibits the wagering of bets on matches featuring players or athletes who are not yet of a legal gambling age – which is currently 18.
