Internet Desk: The All-India Senior Selection Committee on Tuesday named Ravindra Jadeja as the replacement for Axar Patel in the team for the first three ODIs in the five-match series against Australia starting tomorrow i.e. September 17, 2017 in MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk in Chennai.

Axar sprained his left ankle during a practice session and has been advised rest. The BCCI medical team is monitoring his recovery.

Earlier, Jadeja was rested for the ODI series against Sri Lanka and was given an extended break considering India’s hectic schedule in the next two months. Opener Shikhar Dhawan too opted out for the first three matches due to his wife’s illness and is expected to make a return in the final two ODIs.

Steve Smith’s side will have a tough task ahead as Virat Kohli’s men are in rampaging form, making a clean sweep in both the test series and ODI series respectively.

The team for first three ODIs against Australia is as follows:

Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.
