For India, Jasprit Bumrah is kept out of the team and Mohammad Siraj, Siddharth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed is back for the ODIs. MS Dhoni too will replace Rishabh Pant as India’s wicket-keeper.

Earlier in the month, India won the four-match Test series against Australia to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, hence India became the first Asian team to win a Test series in Australia. In 71-years of India’s Test cricket history, this was the first time India won a Test series in Australia.
