#1 Injury scare for India, Dhoni hit on forearm
The Indian cricket team was given an injury scare ahead of the first ODI against Australia, after wicketkeeper MS Dhoni got hit on the forearm during a throwdown session. Facing throwdown specialist Raghavendra, Dhoni got hit on the forearm after a delivery rose higher than expected, forcing him to abort the practice session.
If Dhoni is unable to make it to the playing XI, India has Rishabh Pant, who can double up as a wicketkeeper.

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (captain), Ambati Rayudu, Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Siddarth Kaul, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja
