Australia have included Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh for the three-match ODI series that follows the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Test series. These hard-hitting all-rounders will hope to change the Aussie fortunes in India. Maxwell is hugely popular, with a huge fan base in the country. Marsh has struck good form and is often promoted up the order. With the two in the Australian ODI Squad Vs India, there will be a boost in the middle order batting.
Maxwell and Marsh missed the entirety of the Big Bash League with injuries. The former broke his leg in a freak accident at a house party right after the T20 World Cup. Marsh, on the other hand, underwent keyhole surgery to his left ankle to remove loose bone fragments and repair cartilage.
Cricket Australia’s national selectors have also welcomed back fast bowler Jhye Richardson, who missed the BBL finals with a hamstring injury, while Josh Hazlewood misses out with an Achilles injury picked up while running on the soggy SCG outfield during the New Year’s Test against South Africa.

“With the World Cup just over seven months away, these matches in India are an important step in our preparation. Glenn, Mitchell and Jhye are all important players in what we think the squad might look like come October,” chair of selectors George Bailey said.
“It would be great for Josh to be part of this series but we have taken a conservative view ahead of a very important winter in England of which he will be an integral part,” Bailey added.
The three-match series is in Mumbai (March 17), Visakhapatnam (March 19) and Chennai (March 22).
