As per the rotation policy of Team India to give more chances to Youngsters, it is Tendulkar’s turn to sit out in the crucial match against Australia. Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir have already rested in first two one-dayers against Australia and Sri Lanka respectively.

However, resting Tendulkar might cost heavily to Team India as he is the leading run getter against Australia in ODIs. He also made vital contribution in the last game against Sri Lanka, which India won by four wickets. Tendulkar made 48 runs in the game.

Tendulkar and Vorat Kohli are the only batsmen for India, who have some runs under their belt during this Australia series.

Despite of Team India’s rotation policy, management will not take risk of dropping a inform batsmen for off colour Sehwag and Gambhir. It is expected that Gambhir may miss Sunday’s game again.

After much needed victory against Sri Lanka, Dhoni & Co. will try to keep the momentum going. India must learn the fighting sprit from Sri Lanka’s game against Australia.  

Australia is still unbeaten in this triangular series after defeating India in first ODI and clinching cliffhanger against Sri Lanka by 5 runs.

It will be a major relief for India that inform batsman Mike Hussey has been rested for Adelaide ODI. Mitchelle Marsh has replaced Hussey in the side.
