The Indian team has reached Australia tour these days. Team India will take on Australia on 2 December in Canberra in the third match of the three-match ODI series. After winning both the first ODIs, Australia have taken an unassailable 2–0 lead in the series and their eyes will now be on a clean sweep. At the same time, the Indian team will be looking for the first win of this tour in the third ODI. Ishan Porel, who came to Australia as a net bowler with Team India, has a hamstring injury while bowling, after which he has been sent back to India.

A source from the Cricket Board of India (BCCI), on condition of anonymity, said, “Ishan Porel has an injury to his leg muscles and has been in India for the last few days. It is a leg muscle injury, but its level will be known only after going to the National Cricket Academy for evaluation. T Natarajan has already been included in the main team and in this case only the Uttar Pradesh fast bowler Karthik Tyagi is left with the Indian team as a net bowler.
Aakash told, to win, Team India will have to make two big changes
Initially, Porel, Tyagi, Natarajan and Kamlesh Nagerkoti were added to the team as net bowlers. Nagerkoti, however, withdrew before the team left for Australia, as his bowling burden needed to be managed due to fear of injury. Bengal fast bowler Porel was part of Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League, but he was not given a chance to play a single match. He was selected as one of the four net bowlers after a good performance on the A tour of New Zealand last season.
