In a statement confirming the same, Cricket Australia said, ”Player and coaching exchanges between the MRF Pace Foundation and Cricket Australia have been in place for almost 20 years, with the two Indian players marking the resumption of the relationship that was paused due to COVID.”

While Chetan Sakariya had made his ODI and T20I debuts last year for India against Sri Lanka, Choudhary had a breakthrough season in this year’s IPL under the captaincy of MS Dhoni at CSK, picking up 16 wickets in 13 matches. In the absence of Deepak Chahar, the youngster was given the responsibility to bowl with a new ball and, in 13 matches, he picked up 16 wickets to finish the season as the second-highest wicket-taker for the four-time IPL winners.

In the competition in Australia, Sakariya will be plying his trade for the Sunshine Coast, while the 26-year-old Choudhary will feature for Wynnum-Manly.
