NSW all-rounder Henriques set make Oz ODI debut

Posted By: Staff

New Delhi, Oct.31 (ANI): NSW Champions League star Moises Henriques is set to make his one-day international debut today after Brett Lee and James Hopes were ruled out of the match against India in Delhi with minor injuries.

The 22-year-old all-rounder, who has played one international Twenty20 match, will join replacement wicketkeeper Graham Manou in the side, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

Meanwhile, team sources have revealed that Australian batsmen will be told to aim for the ''V'' between mid-wicket and cover when attempting strokes.

''For a batting group, it's about playing as straight as you can and not playing too many cross-bat shots, and for a bowling group it's all about trying to hit the stumps more often than not,'' Ponting was quoted, as saying yesterday. (ANI)
