Vijay Shankar is likely to make a cut in the absence of Hardik Pandya, who is out with an injury. Jasprit Bumrah will be back in the lineup after missing the series' in Australia and New Zealand.

Carey to return to the XI

Kane Richardson has been ruled of the ODI series and Andrew Tye has been named his replacement. Shaun Marsh who was earlier rested for this tour but he has been recalled back into the squad while D Arcy Short has been sent back home after an impressive performance in the T20Is.

Australian skipper Aaron Finch also confirmed the inclusion of Alex Carey as the wicket-keeper in the side. Unlike India with their wrist-spin duo, Australia is still pondering upon their spin options between Nathan Lyon and Adam Zampa.
