India vs Australia (IND vs AUS) ODI, T20 and Test Series 2020 Schedule, Squad, Venues: India tour of Australia 2020 comprises three T20 Internationals, as many ODIs and four Tests. It is set to get underway from November 27. In the squad announcement made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, India’s limited-over vice-captain and senior opener Rohit Sharma has been left out of all three squads for the tour of Australia due to a recurring hamstring injury.

In Rohit’s absence, the in-form KL Rahul will be Virat Kohli’s deputy in the white ball teams and is also back in the Test squad after a considerable period of time. Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant failed to make the cut for the limited overs even though he retained his place in the Test squad.

In Rohit’s absence, the in-form KL Rahul will be Virat Kohli’s deputy in the white ball teams and is also back in the Test squad after a considerable period of time. Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant failed to make the cut for the limited overs even though he retained his place in the Test squad.

While a section in BCCI believes that Rohit may not be able to make it in time for Australia series, the batsman is leaving no stone unturned as he hit the nets minutes after the team was announced.

India ODI Squad: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, KL Rahul (vice-captain & wicket-keeper), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Mayank Agarwal, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd. Shami, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur

India vs Australia T20I Series 2020 Schedule

# Match Date & Day Time (IST) Venue
1 1st T20I Dec 4/Fri 12:30 PM Manuka Oval
2 2nd T20I Dec 6/Sun 1:30 PM SCG
3 3rd T20I Dec 8/Tue 1:30 PM SCG

Rahul becomes India’s first-choice keeper in both T20 Internationals and ODIs as selectors finally ran out of patience with Pant. Sanju Samson will be the second wicket-keeper in T20 International squad which also features Kolkata Knight Riders’ mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy.

Varun’s five-wicket haul against Delhi Capitals is one of the highlights of this IPL and he has bowled brilliantly at the death mixing his clever variations. With Kuldeep Yadav not being preferred by his own franchise for the better part, it is Varun, who has stolen the limelight. Chennai Super Kings fast bowler Deepak Chahar has also made a comeback to the T20I side.

India T20 Squad: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul (vice-captain and wicket-keeper), Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Sanju Samson (wicket-keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd. Shami, Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Varun Chakravarthy
