Australia Names ODI Team for India Series: Mitch Marsh and Glenn Maxwell Return

Australia One day
Mitch Marsh and Glenn Maxwell Return

Mitch Marsh and Glenn Maxwell, two all-around players, have been selected to make their international debuts in an ODI series in India next month. This will offer Australia a head start on preparing for their World Cup campaign later in the year.

Along with David Warner, Ashton Agar, and Pat Cummins, who all returned to Australia this week from the Test tour, paceman Jhye Richardson will also play for the United States once again.

Pat Cummins (captain), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Cameron Green, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, and Adam Zampa are the members of the Australia ODI squad. Cummins returned to Australia this week despite being out due to what a Cricket Australia spokesperson described as a severe family illness, he plans to play again before the third Test the following week.

Marsh (ankle) and Maxwell (broken leg) have both missed considerable time after having surgery during the domestic summer, but they are expected to participate in the three-match tour that will take place after the current Test campaign, with matches in Mumbai, Vizag, and Chennai.

Both Maxwell, who has been playing again this week for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield, and Marsh, who is anticipated to play again this weekend for Western Australia in the Marsh One-Day Cup, will be crucial components of the 50-over World Cup, which will take place in India in October and November of this year. One of two bilateral one-day series that Australia is scheduled to play in India previous to the World Cup will take place in September.

Josh would be a wonderful addition to this series, but selection director George Bailey said, "We have taken a conservative view ahead of a very important winter in England, of which he will be an essential part.

After adding the one-day job to his Test responsibilities last summer as a result of Aaron Finch's retirement, Cummins will take the helm of the team in just his second series in command.
