Ergo, Ravindra Jadeja has been dropped, who was in fact, called forth owing to the former's injury.

Shikhar Dhawan will take no part in the ODI series against Australia after he was not named in India's squad for the last two ODIs.

Ajinkya Rahane will be the opener for the final two ODIs as the hosts are looking to conquer Australia in the final two ODIs as well making a clean sweep.

Dhawan has not featured after being given leave to support his wife, who is recovering after falling ill and subsequently undergoing surgery.
