The Squad for the upcoming series against Australia includes India’s ace spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. Ashwin is returning to the ODI cricket after almost 20 months before the World Cup. In addition, apart from Ashwin, Washington Sundar is also part of the Indian side. However, Sundar is part of the team as a backup of Axar Patel. Axar Patel quadriceps strain during the India vs. Bangladesh match caused him to miss the Asia Cup finale.
Moreover, apart from Kuldeep Yadav, skipper Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, and Virat Kohli will also rest from participating in the first two games in the upcoming series vs. Australia.
