BCCI is set to announce the squad for the upcoming ODIs and T20Is against Australia. India will play two T20Is against the Aussies before engaging in a five-match ODI series.
India’s ODI assignment starts next month with the first match being played on March 2 in Hyderabad. Recently, the chief selector MSK Prasad had said that the core of the team has been finalized.
Rishabh Pant may be given a chance to impress as he fights for a place with Dinesh Karthik.
Further, India need a back-up all-rounder for Hardik Pandya. This is where Vijay Shankar and Ravindra Jadeja come in.
All eyes will be on India’s performance in the ODIs, given it is the last international series for Men in Blue before the ICC World Cup 2019.
