Sunday's ODI will be India's first under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma who will fill in for Virat Kohli who is rested for the limited overs series. Hardik Pandya is expected to be back for India and will play an important role as the team doesn't boast of many bowling options among their top order batsmen, however veteran MS Dhoni was seen trying his seam up at practice.
