Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav return for first 3 ODIs

Reuters

The five ODIs will be played between 17th September and 1st October following which both the teams will lock horns in a three match T20I series. Yadav and Shami, who were rested after the Sri Lanka Test series, have been recalled after a break.

The first three ODIs of the five-match series will be starting from September 17.

In the pace line-up, Shardul Thakur has been dropped and in his place Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami have been brought in. The legendary wicketkeeper batsman, though, seems to have earned back the right to go out on his own terms, and perhaps last even till the 2019 World Cup, after delivering a few match-winning knocks under pressure during the series. All eyes were on R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who were rested for the India-Sri Lanka ODIs, and the selectors have done the same for the Australia series as well.

India completed an overwhelmingly successful tour of Sri Lanka, winning every worldwide match - 3-0 in the Tests, 5-0 in the ODIs and 1-0 in the lone T20I.

Rookie spinners Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal have been retained for their performance during the Sri Lanka tour, where India swept to an emphatic 9-0 victory in all three formats.

He said, 'I always knew that no one could live forever, but I thought there might be one exception.' So you've got to have joy. Made a lot of mistakes. "I think that we can say honorably", Tapper responded. "And I hope we can add honorably".

One would have expected that the selectors will give the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik a chance to prove themselves after India's woes at number 4 continued in Sri Lanka where KL Rahul failed to impress.

Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice captain), MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, KL Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chala, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav.

Dubai: India's left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja has lost his top spot after sliding a place to be at the second position in the ICC Test bowlers rankings, released here Sunday. Anderson has climbed to the top of the chart, owing to his superb effort in the third and final Test against the West Indies at Lord's.

While this tour represents the first time since the Test series that the two nations have come face to face, Smith and several of Australia's big-name players played with and against Kohli and his India teammates during the Indian Premier League earlier this year.
