New Delhi: After a record setting 5-0 clean sweep in the T20I series, India will look to continue their winning momentum in the ODI series against New Zealand. India are set to play three ODIs, starting Wednesday. India, however, suffered a big blow ahead of the match as limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the ODI and Test series. Rohit had to retire hurt during 5th T20I match that India won on Sunday.Mayank Agarwal has been confirmed as Rohit’s replacement for the ODI series while Shubman Gill – who recently slammed a double ton against New Zealand day, has been called for the Test series. Agarwal was the logical choice in the white-ball format since he was the reserve opener in the side during the home ODI series against the West Indies when Shikhar Dhawan was absent due to knee injury. However, he is not expected to play in the first match with KL Rahul and Prithvi Shaw expected to open for India.ALSO READ: Rohit Sharma Ruled Out Of ODI And Test Series Against New Zealand Due To Calf InjuryIndia vs New Zealand 1st ODI: Probable Playing XIIndia Predicted XI: Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Jasprit BumrahNew Zealand Predicted XI: Martin Guptill, Tom Blundell, Kane Williamson (C), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (WK), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn, Ish Sodhi, Hamish BennettIndia vs New Zealand 1st ODI: Pitch ReportThe third T20I was also played in Bay Oval.

In-form striker Robin van Persie scored a hat-trick as Arsenal edged Chelsea in a stunning derby.Chelsea’s Frank Lampard opened the scoring with a stooping header but Van Persie levelled into an empty net.John Terry re-established Chelsea’s lead from 16 yards before Andre Santos equalised from the egde of the box.Gunners’ Theo Walcott scored after a run and Chelsea’s Juan Mata fired home a stunner before Van Persie tapped into an empty net then smashed home another.Van Persie’s last two goals came in the last five minutes, with the first of those two coming when Terry slipped from Florent Malouda’s poor back-pass, leaving the Dutchman in miles of space to sidestep Petr Cech and slot home.And then the striker was played in by Mikel Arteta in injury-time and Cech could not keep his shot out. The win lifts Arsenal up to sixth in the table.
Related NASAs Goddard Space Flight Center(NEW YORK) — A new NASA program years in the making will attempt to do what no spacecraft has ever done before — scan the universe to find thousands of planets orbiting stars outside our solar system.But the question on everyone’s mind yet to be answered: Is there life on any of those planets?The agency’s new planet hunter — named TESS, or the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite — is one of its most important missions, says astrophysicist Hakeem Oluseyi.“TESS will discover planets around the nearest brightest stars seen from Earth,” he said.Not too long along, there were nine planets in the solar system. But then scientists scratched Pluto off the list — to the dismay of many planet lovers who still wonder what happened to the ninth planet.Well, Pluto is still a planet, but now it is now considered a dwarf planet.Beyond the planets in the Kuiper belt, though, scientists hope TESS will find more planets. NASA astronomers have already discovered thousands of exoplanets.But TESS — the first-ever spaceborne, all-sky transit survey — will identify a wide range of planets, from Earth-sized to gas giants.Oluseyi said TESS has that capability because of the physics of shadows and light.“Light passing through the planets’ atmospheres, or bouncing off their atmospheres, will provide details of the planets’ chemistry and search for signatures of life,” he said.So when a planet passes in front of its host star, the light will dim, Oluseyi said, and that’s what TESS will be looking for — those dimming lights that astronomers call dips transits.What would be the dream discovery for TESS?An Earth-sized planet that has survived the life cycle of the star it orbits and is orbiting a white star. It’s an elusive discovery for astronomers.TESS is expected to find thousands of other planets during its two-year mission exploring the nearest and brightest stars in our galaxy to see if there are unknown worlds hiding in their light.TESS is scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Monday at 6:32 p.m. ET.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
