Vice-captain Rohit Sharma Thursday said India's World Cup squad is more or less settled but nobody should take his place for granted as poor form could lead to omissions. In doing so, he missed the Sydney Test but returned in time for celebrations with the team which clinched a maiden series win on Australian soil.

Rohit Sharma also heaped praise on Mahendra Singh Dhoni saying that over the years, he has proved how vital his presence is in the dressing room and on the field.

With the 2019 ODI World Cup on the horizon, focus has firmly shifted to white-ball cricket with the arrival of limited-overs' specialists here on Tuesday.

"They've done really well for us, whether it's in India or outside India and one of the reasons I would say is MS".

Providers ranging from primary doctors to pediatricians and obstetricians will be from the NYC Health + Hospitals system. The idea took inspiration from San Francisco's version of universal health care, Healthy San Francisco, enacted in 2007.

Azharuddin said that Dhoni will emerge as India's No.1 player at the World Cup which will be held in England. "Also with the bat. down the order, getting through that finishing line is very, very important", Rohit said. "Probably one or two changes, keeping in mind the form and injury concerns over the next few months".

"It's just an opportunity to see Alex play in a position he's done quite bit in Big Bash and one-day cricket", Finch told reporters on Friday, where he added that Peter Siddle would make his return to ODI cricket for the first time in eight years.

"So for him being around with the team always is helpful and he's like a guiding light around the group. I think they have done that in the last series we have played, in the Asia Cup, and also against the West Indies in India", he added. His presence around the group is a massive factor.

India will not be fielding Hardik Pandya and K L Rahul in Saturday's ODI series-opener against Australia after Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Diana Edulji recommended a suspension pending inquiry for their controversial comments on women during a TV show. And one of the reasons for that is MS and how he has guided these two guys in the middle about how to keep things tight and field placements.
