Its Kulkarni is first time call to the Indian team while Mohit had made his ODI debut on the recent tour of Zimbabwe. Their performances in the recent Ranji Trophy in Lahli game were noticeable: Kulkarni shared a match-winning partnership with Sachin Tendulkar, whose wicket had been claimed by Haryana team player Mohit in the first innings. In pace-friendly and cold conditions, the 2 delivered with both bat and ball in this game.
Both Ishant Sharma and Vinay kumar received great criticism for their bowling in what was a high-scoring with Australia series. While bowlers from both sides fared worst due to great batting conditions and the four-fielder rule, Ishant Sharma and Vinay kumar were singled out for criticism due to their inability to control their line and length and bowl yorkers.
Ishant Sharma conceded 30 runs in an over in the Mohali ODI, letting a sure victory slip out of India hands. Later in the series, Vinay kumar became the first Indian bowler to concede over a hundred runs in an ODI in Bangalore.
