Australian squad for Test series in India
Yes, it is
I don't think so
Question in detailAustralian squad for Test series in India: While India had no double thought to retain the same squad, Aussies looked a bit heartsick to drop some of their players for the arduous India tour, which consists of four Tests. The changes Australia made in their squad are meant to rectify the team's desperate Test run over the time.
Australia announced their 16-men squad about a month before the India tour. Leg-spinner Swepson, who got a maiden international call-up, remained the main attraction. 23-year old Swepson will be available as one of five handy spin options alongside Ashton Agar and Glenn Maxwell. The other two spinners, who have been named for this India tour, are Nathan Lyon and Steve O'Keefe. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh comes as another pick to bat in at No. 6 in place of Hilton Cartwhite. Left-handed batsmen Usman Khawaja will also be a part of Australian team on India tour 2017.
Shaun Marsh, who made a comeback to the national squad after recovering a finger injury, will be seen in the top order along with David Warner and skipper Steven Smith. Matthew Wade has been included as the only wicketkeeper option in Australian squad for Test series in India. He is a replacement of Peter Nevill. All-rounder O'Keefe replaced Jackson Bird. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will be seen leading Australian pace attack.
Australian team on India tour 2017 will as: Steven Smith(c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Matt Renshaw, Steve O'Keefe, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Jackson Bird, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Agar and Mitchell Starc.
