Australia have recalled pace bowler Andrew Tye to the squad for next month's three-match Twenty20 worldwide series against India, Cricket Australia said on Tuesday.

The team management had earlier made a decision to rest Cummins for the T20 series ahead of the upcoming Ashes.

Arsenal and Mesut Ozil have not discussed terms of a new contract since February earlier this year, according to reports. There were claims that the Germany worldwide was closing in on a new deal, but they appear to be wide of the mark.

The Aussies have lost the first three ODIs of the series and will be looking to overturn fortunes having not won an ODI in the last eight outings.

Given the 24-year-old's tryst with injuries and considering Australia have been reeling with the loss of several cricketers, the team management thought it fit to rest the cricketer from the T20I leg of the limited-overs tour of India.

Earlier this year, playing for the Gujarat Lions in the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Tye had picked up a hat-trick against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS). He will join the attack alongside Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kane Richardson and uncapped left-armer Jason Behrendorff. The 12 wickets made him the highest wicket taker for the IPL franchise.
