Keeping the hectic schedule in mind, the national selectors are expected to rest senior players like Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan from the upcoming ODI series against Australia. KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane are likely to be recalled.

Virat Kohli, who was rested from the last two ODIs and T20 internationals against New Zealand, will lead India against the visitors.

In Rohit’s absence, Ajinkya Rahane is the front-runner to stage another ODI comeback, as per reports in The Hindu.

Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal could be rested considering their workload in international arena. Jasprit Bumrah, who was rested from the ODI series against Australia and the entire New Zealand tour, is expected to lead the attack in absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami, who could be rested.
