The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the squad for India’s tour of Australia. The selection committee headed by Sunil Joshi picked the squads for all the three formats for India’s upcoming Test, ODI and T20I series against Australia. There were a few surprises as India’s limited overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma wasn’t included in any of the squads while fast bowler Ishant Sharma, a regular in the Test set-up, was also not named.
“The All-India Senior Selection Committee met via video-conference on Monday to select the Indian Cricket Team for the upcoming Tour of Australia. Team India will take part in three T20Is, three ODIs and four Test matches against Australia,’ a statement released by BCCI said.
