Cricket News: David Warner, Pat Cummins doubtful for ODI series against India

According to rumours, David Warner and Pat Cummins may not travel to India for the ODI series as well.The Australian duo had already been ruled out from the present Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Cricket Australia may decide not to risk playing Warner keeping in mind the ODI World Cup scheduled later this year.The Australian opener shattered his elbow and is still healing from his injury.

Pat Cummins hasn't decided yet, but it's quite likely that he will miss the ODI series.This is because he will be spending time with his mother, who is receiving hospice care.

If Cummins is unable to return before the series starts, Steve Smith will serve as the captain of the Australian team.Warner is extremely likely to lose his spot in the team, therefore it is thought that the ODI series could have revitalised his red-ball career.

Australia might not select him for the upcoming WTC final and the Ashes due to his dismal performance in England.Thus, players like Travis Head can have extended runs at the top of the order.While currently India and Australia are playing their 4th and final Test in Ahmedabad

And the Men in Blues need to win to ensure their place in the WTC final.

After the T20 World Cup, flamboyant all-arounder Glenn Maxwell shattered his leg due to an accident. Since then, he has missed numerous international tours, the Big Bash League, and Australian local championships.

Even though Maxwell is now listed on the roster, there is still a lot of uncertainty around him. He hasn't fully recovered, according to a Zero Cricket report, and the board might be hesitant to send him given the ODI World Cup later in the year.

Mitchell Marsh, the team's outstanding all-arounder, is anticipated to go to India but might not participate in every game.

He recently injured his ankle and has since recovered, but the team management would not want to take a chance by having him play in every game like David Warner and Glenn Maxwell did.

Nathan Ellis will take Jhye Richardson's place in the white-ball series after the star pacer re-aggravated his hamstring injury.
