BCCI announces India squad for the 3 T20Is against Australia

The Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) on Sunday announced India’s squad for the 3-match T20I series against Australia.

India opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan, who missed the 5-match one-day series against the Aussies has been included in the squad. Another notable inclusion in the squad is that of Dinesh Karthik, with the core group of players pretty much remains the same.


Ashish Nehra has also made it to the T20I squad, with Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami missing out on a spot for the upcoming series. Ajinkya Rahane, who had a brilliant series against the visitors in the one-dayers also failed to make it to the 15-member squad announced by the BCCI.

There were some rather surprising exclusions as well. Rishabh Pant, who is touted to be MS Dhoni‘s successor in the future, was not named in the squad despite impressing for India A in recent times. Meanwhile, Suresh Raina‘s limited-overs career too took a hit with his name not in the hat either. Raina last represented India in T20Is in the series against England earlier this year.

India Squad:


Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni(wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Axar Patel
