Kohli is currently out of cricket as he and other senior players of the team have been rested for the first two ODIs of the three-match series against Australia. He will be back in the team for the final match.
Shreyas Iyer and Shubman Gill slammed centuries to help India defeat Australia by 99 runs (DLS method) in a rain-hit second ODI on Sunday to win the series 2-0.
Iyer (105) Gill (104) put on a dominant 200 for the second wicket to lay the foundation for India’s 399-5 after being asked to bat in Indore.
Stand-in skipper KL Rahul’s 52 and T20 sensation Suryakumar Yadav’s unbeaten 72 contributed to the mammoth total and the bowlers then combined to give India an unbeatable lead in the three-match series.
These matches constitute preparation for the World Cup in India which will begin on October 5.
Regular captain Rohit Sharma will also make a return along with star batter Kohli for the final ODI in Rajkot on Wednesday and the team will have to make some tough choices to pick the starting XI.
“It (selection) is the headache of the coach and Rohit… whoever gets picked has a job to do,” stand-in captain Rahul said.
“It can be tough to sit out after scoring a lot of points, but everyone has been through that.”
Chasing a revised DLS target of 317 in 33 overs after rain halted play in the chase, Australia were bowled out for 217 in 28.2 overs.
Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja took three wickets each.
