Team India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya who bounced back with a scintillating knock in the New Zealand series has been ruled out of the Australia series due to a lower back injury. Ravindra Jadeja has been named as the replacement for Hardik Pandya.
India plays two T20Is against Australia – on February 24 in Visakhapatnam and February 27 in Bengaluru – before the five-match ODI series which begins on March 2 in Hyderabad. The second ODI will be played in Nagpur on March 5, while Ranchi will host the third game on March 8. Mohali and Delhi are the venues for the last two ODIs which will be played on March 10 and 13 respectively.
