India's Mahendra Singh Dhoni talks to teammates during a training session at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney

"It's always tricky, when to take it and when not".

"I thought we were fine with the ball, score of 300-plus was par on that wicket".

"Surprisingly, the ball was reversing quite a bit when these guys were bowling so to adjust to that is not really easy for the new batter", Rohit Sharma said after his 133, which gave India a chance in the chase of 289. But it is important to use the DRS well and we've spoken a lot about it.

"It totally depends on what the captain and coach think about it". Personally, I would be happy if Dhoni bats at four'.

Sharma had mixed feelings about his ton.

Dhoni's 95-ball 53 included just four boundaries and many Indian fans felt he batted too slowly, allowing Australia to take control of the game.

India on Sunday named all-rounder Vijay Shankar and batsman Shubman Gill as replacements for KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya.

The duo have been suspended for an undisclosed length of time, with the pair set to miss the one-day global series in Australia starting on Saturday and the following limited-overs tour of New Zealand.

"My only goal is that I don't want to let the opportunity go if I get selected in the XI", he told ESPNCricinfo.

"With K.L. Rahul and Hardik Pandya set to return from Australia, the All-India Senior Selection Committee has made a decision to send all-rounder Vijay Shankar and batsman Shubman Gill as replacements", a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) statement said late on Saturday.

Rahul and Pandya were sent back home ahead of the first ODI against Australia in Sydney after they made "inappropriate comments" on Koffee with Karan, which is a TV talk show. The Tamil Nadu-based cricketer was the highest run-getter for India A in the tour of New Zealand, scoring 188 runs in the three ODI matches.

India ODI squad to tour New Zealand: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shubman Gill, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami.
