Post the IPL season, Team India is all set to begin its tour of Australia in the month of November for the Tests, ODIs, and T20 format matches.

India’s tour of Australia for the T20s and ODIs is all set to begin from the month of November. The tour will begin after the conclusion of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) matches. This Australia tour will consist of four Test matches, three one-day Internationals (ODIs), and three T20 International (T20I) matches in the Australian grounds.

The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) announced a 32-member squad for this two-month-long tour. With fans rejoicing at the selection of skipper Virat Kohli as the team leads in all the forms, Rohit Sharma’s exclusion in the tour given his hamstring injury is upsetting the Hit-man fanatics! The medical team of BCCI is said to monitor the progress of Sharma.

KL Rahul on the other hand will make a comeback to the Tests and the ODI as both skipper and caption’s main man – Vice Caption. Hardik Pandya, too will be returning to the T20I squad. Varun Chakravarthy will be the fresh face in the tour who is currently playing with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at IPL. Chakravarthy’s five-wicket haul in the league marked his name in the history of IPL, along with his spectacular performance as a spinner.

As a backup, four additional fast bowlers will be traveling with the squad – Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Kartik Tyagi, Ishan Porel, and T. Natarajan.

Here’s the list of all the players from Team India who’ll be joining the Australia tour:
