Australia on Saturday said Mike Hussey would be rested for their third game in the tri-nation one-day international series, with allrounder Mitchell Marsh brought into the squad.

Australia go into Sunday's match against India in Adelaide unbeaten, after victory over Sri Lanka in Perth on Friday and an earlier win over India.

"Mike Hussey is to be rested and will not travel with the squad to Adelaide while Ben Hilfenhaus has returned to Hobart and will not join the squad for tomorrow's match," Cricket Australia said.

West Australia's Marsh will join the squad in Adelaide, it added.

Australia have yet to name their squad for the remaining games in the series, which continues until March 8.

Australia: Michael Clarke (c), Dan Christian, Xavier Doherty, Peter Forrest, Ryan Harris, David Hussey, Mitchell Marsh, Clint McKay, Ricky Ponting, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, David Warner.
