Bumrah gets ODI, T20 break after Australia heroics

Virat Kohli's team will now take on the hosts in three one-day internationals starting Saturday in Sydney and then travel to New Zealand for a limited-overs series later this month

The Men in Blue, who will play three matches against Australia and five against New Zealand, could reach 125 points and within one point of England if they are able to win all eight matches.

Mohammed Siraj has been included in the One-Day International (ODI) squad while Siddarth Kaul will join the side for the three T20Is in New Zealand.

India ODI squad for Australia and New Zealand: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami.

Bumrah won't be a part of the forthcoming ODI series against Australia and T20I series against New Zealand as the star pacer has been rested by the team management. The 25-year-old with an unorthodox sling-arm action was joint highest wicket-taker along with Australia's Nathan Lyon with 21 from the four-match series, which the tourists won 2-1.

It is popularly called the "dark side" because it can't be seen from Earth and is relatively unknown, not because it lacks sunlight.

Led by Bumrah, the Indians easily outbowled Australia in the Test series, prompting home captain Tim Paine to call it "potentially the best pace attack in the world". The list for most overs bowled across the three formats in worldwide cricket in 2018 was also led by Lyon (636.3) and Bumrah (511.3), but the India fast bowler led the wicket charts for the year with a tally of 78.

Meanwhile, Siraj has been in top form with the ball in domestic cricket.

Siraj, who has played three T20Is, picked up seven wickets for Hyderabad in their last Ranji Trophy clash against Punjab. He also picked up seven wickets against New Zealand A, including a 4-wicket haul in the last match.

India will face Australia in a three-match ODI series which begins on January 12. Following that, India will fly further south to take on New Zealand in five ODIs and three T20Is.
