Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday rested star spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin and recalled pacers Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami to the 16-man squad for the first-three One-Day Internationals (ODI) of the five-match series against Australia.

Commenting on the squad selection, M.S.K. Prasad, chairman, All-India Senior Selection Committee, said: "The team for the first three ODIs has been selected in line with the rotation policy of the board and accordingly R. Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been rested." 

"The team's performance during the Sri Lanka tour was outstanding and players like Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, who performed very well, are being given an extended run and this will in turn supplement our approach, to build a strong reserve strength, as we prepare for forthcoming tours." 

Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami, on rotation basis, missed the limited overs series in the recent Sri Lanka tour.

India will host Australia in Chennai, Kolkata and Indore for the first three ODIs in the series scheduled from September 17 to 24. 

Indian squad: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma (vice-capt), Shikhar Dhawan, K.L. Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.
