He is learning the 50-over game: Dravid shrugs off concerns about Suryakumar's poor form
"Obviously, it's unfortunate for Shreyas to get injured -- he's one of those guys we think will bat for us at No.4 and he has been given a lot of time in that position. Not really concerned so much about Suryakumar. You have got two first-ballers against two pretty good balls," Dravid said in the pre-match presser of the series decider.
3rd ODI: We've narrowed it down to 17-18 players for 2023 ODI World Cup: Dravid
In the first three months of 2023, India have played nine ODI matches besides six T20Is and four Tests. But the focus was always on the ODIs. The ongoing series against Australia will be India's last engagement at home over the next few months. The side will not get many other opportunities to play home ODIs except three more matches at home against Australia in September before the World Cup.
Suryakumar Yadav in ODIs is a non-negotiable, can be tried at number six: Dinesh Karthik

IND v AUS: Ishan, Shubman to be opening pair; wicket to give equal opportunities to both teams, says Hardik Pandya
With Rohit Sharma unavailable for the ODI series opener due to personal reasons, a vacancy at the top will be filled by Kishan, with the left-handed batter set to join forces with the right-handed Gill. While Gill hit a double hundred and a century in India's last ODI assignment against New Zealand earlier in the year, Kishan had an underwhelming run ever since he hit a rollicking 210 against Bangladesh last year.
