England all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes are set to miss the remaining three ODI's in the 5-Match ODI Series Against Australia

England all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes are set to miss the remaining three one-dayers in the five-match series against Australia.

Ben Stokes tore his left hamstring before the second Test against Pakistan and will be with the squad for the fourth and fifth ODIs but is unlikely to play.

The hope is he will face India in a Twenty20 series starting on 3 July.

Chris Woakes has a right quad tear and will be out until at least the ODIs against India, which start on 12 July.

The Warwickshire player was injured during the second Test against Pakistan earlier this month, and the problem is related to a chronic right knee issue, for which he has had an injection.

Durham's Stokes can bat fully and run at 90% capacity. He will start bowling again this week.
England are 2-0 up in the five-match series against Australia before they play the tourists in a T20 match.

They will then host India for three T20s, three ODIs and a five-match Test series.

2018 Petrol Price Revision - Petrol and diesel prices unchanged for the third straight day Monday June 18,2018

Petrol and diesel prices were kept unchanged on Monday, June 18.,2018

That marked the third straight day of steady prices for petrol and the first in case of diesel.
Petrol and diesel prices have eased somewhat from record highs touched in some cities last month.

 However, the relief so far this month is to the tune of Rs. 2 per litre for petrol prices in Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai, compared with the increase of nearly double the magnitude in the previous month.

In case of diesel, the prices so far this month are down about Rs. 1.5 per litre in the four metros, compared with the hike of at least Rs. 3 per litre in each of the key cities last month.

An upsurge in global crude oil prices and weakness in the rupee against the US dollar had pushed domestic petrol and diesel prices higher last month.

5  things to know about petrol price and diesel price today:

1. With effect from 6 am on Monday, June 18, petrol prices were at Rs. 76.35 per litre in Delhi, Rs. 79.02 per litre in Kolkata, Rs. 84.18 per litre in Mumbai and Rs. 79.24 per litre in Chennai, according to IOC
Diesel prices were at Rs. 67.78 a litre, Rs. 70.33 a litre, Rs. 72.13 a litre and Rs. 71.54 a litre in Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai.

2. From May 14 to May 29, petrol prices were increased in the range of Rs. 3.74-4 a litre across the four metros and diesel prices raised by Rs. 3.23-3.62 a litre. That led to the fuel prices touching all-time highs in some cities including Delhi and Mumbai.
