Australia call up Handscomb as cover for injured Finch

Indian pacer Mohammed Shami

Australia on Friday added right-hander Peter Handscomb to the squad for the five-match ODI series against India as cover for injured Aaron Finch.

Finch aggravated his right calf during Australia's warm-up on Thursday and pulled out of the rest of the training session to ice the damaged muscle.

Chennai: Flamboyant India batsman Rohit Sharma feels cricketers have a short shelf life and they shouldn't complain about burnouts.Stating that he doesn't believe in taking a break citing tight schedule as excuse, Rohit said: "Cricketers have limited careers, we can not play till the (age of) 60, 70".

The five matches starts with one on Sunday in Chennai but the tourists have suffered a blow after batsman Finch aggravated a calf injury, leaving him likely to miss a number of the opening games. The team management might also ponder opting for Travis Head to open the innings along with David Warner. "He will remain with the squad whilst we assess the injury and establish his return to play timelines".

Power has been restored to approximately 93 percent of nursing homes classified as priority critical infrastructure facilities. Special disaster medical assistance teams are deployed to provide healthcare services to areas of the state that are in need.

Throughout, Kohli had several spats with Australian players - including Smith and Glenn Maxwell - during what was a tempestuous series, declaring afterward that friendships had been affected.

"Hopefully the chance to go up the order again", Head said when asked about his targets for the series. It was nice to get some time in the middle the other day [in the warm-up game]. I haven't played a great deal but have been around the conditions and have adapted to the style I guess.

"I will be happy if I can come up with the same performances as last time".

"[The year] has gone by pretty quickly". I feel very welcome in this side. I don't see myself doing that, I want to play as much as possible.
