Suryakumar Yadav is set to lead Team India as the BCCI on Monday announced a 15-member squad for the five-match T20I series against Australia. The series begins on November 23 in Vizag with the following games to be played in Thiruvananthapuram (Nov 26) and Guwahati (Nov 28). The last two games of the series, which were initially scheduled to be held in Nagpur (on Dec 1) and Hyderabad (on Dec 3) have been moved to Raipur and Bengaluru, respectively. CricketNext has reported earlier about the venue changes.

Shreyas Iyer, who was part of the ODI World Cup squad, will join the team as vice-captain for the last two T20Is in Raipur and Bengaluru.

Meanwhile, Ruturaj Gaikwad will act as Surya’s deputy in the first three matches of the tournament.

The selectors have picked several young talents including Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, Tilak Varma, Washington Sundar and others who were also part of the Asian Games squad too.

India’s squad for Australia T20Is: Suryakumar Yadav (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad (vice-captain), Ishan Kishan, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Shivam Dubey, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar

Hardik Pandya unavailable

Star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who has been leading the side in the shortest format lately, will require more time to recover from his left ankle ligament tear. The team will be leaving for South Africa after hosting the Aussies and a more practical scenario for Hardik would be to get fit by the time the T20 series against the Proteas begins from December 10 in Durban.
