The All-India Senior Selection Committee has picked the India Cricket Team for the first three ODIs of the upcoming five-match ODI series against Australia. The Committee also named the India ‘A’ squad for the two four-day games against New Zealand ‘A’.

The team for first three ODIs against Australia is as follows: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.

MSK Prasad, Chairman, All-India Senior Selection Committee, outlining the way forward said, “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. The team’s performance during the Sri Lanka tour was outstanding and players like Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, who performed very well are being given an extended run and this will in turn supplement our approach, to build a strong reserve strength, as we prepare for forthcoming tours.”

Meanwhile, the India 'A' team to take on New Zealand 'A' in the upcoming four day games was also announced, and will be led by Indian Test hopeful Karun Nair.
