The hosts will, however, continue to be without off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and left-arm tweaker Ravindra Jadeja for the first three of five matches against Steve Smith's side. Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will be India's spinners as the Virat Kohli-led side continues to build toward the 50-over World Cup in 2019 in England and Wales.

"The team for the three ODIs against Australia has been selected in line with the rotation policy of the Board and accordingly R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested," India's chief selector MSK Prasad said in a statement. "The team's performance during the Sri Lanka tour was outstanding and players like Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, who performed very well, are being given an extended run and this will in turn supplement our approach, to build a strong reserve strength, as we prepare for forthcoming tours."
