India announced the squad for the first three one-day internationals for the Australia series and as expected there were not much changes from the squad that beat Sri Lanka in the ODI series recently.
The series will be played at home starting from September 17. Virat Kohli will lead the side & star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was once again left out the team while spin twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja were rested once again.
The only change in the squad was the omission of fast bowler Shardul Thakur. Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami, who were rested after the Sri Lanka Test series, have been recalled. Both Axar and Chahal were rewarded for their good performances against Sri Lanka.
“The team for the three ODIs against Australia has been selected in line with the rotation policy of the Board and accordingly R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested,” India’s chief selector MSK Prasad said during the release.
