India on Sunday recalled pacemen Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav to the squad for the first three one-day internationals against Australia in the upcoming limited-over home series.

Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja continued to be rested as the selectors announced a 16-member squad for the series starting September 17.


India and Australia will play five ODIs in all and three Twenty20 matches during the tour lasting nearly a month.

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.

“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,” said MSK Prasad, chairman of the senior selection committee.
