Opener David Warner was also in the squad, despite leaving their Test tour of India this week with concussion and a hairline fracture in his elbow.

Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh will make their transnational returns from lengthy injury layoffs after being named on Thursday in Australia’s one- day team for the series in India.

All- rounder Maxwell broke his leg and passed surgery in November after slipping and falling during a friend’s 50th birthday party.

Marsh went under the cutter soon after for a long- standing left ankle problem, with loose bone fractions removed and cartilage repaired.

They both return for ODIs in Mumbai, Visakhapatnam and Chennai between March 17 and 22, giving Australia an early look at conditions ahead of the World Cup in India latterly this time.

Nature David Warner was also in the team, despite leaving their Test stint of India this week with concussion and a hairline fracture in his elbow.

But pace forefront Josh Hazlewood was left out after he too returned home early with an Achilles ’ injury.

Fellow fast bowler Jhye Richardson was called up having recovered from a hamstring strain.

“With the World Cup just over seven months down, these matches in India are an important step in our medication, ” said president of pickers George Bailey.

“Glenn, Mitchell and Jhye are each important players in what we suppose the team might look like come October. It would be great for Josh to be part of this series but we’ve taken a conservative view ahead of a veritably important downtime in England of which he’ll be an integral part, ” he added.

Australia incentive Ashton Agar has flown home after he was released from the Test team traveling India to play domestic justice, public chooser Tony Dodemaide said on Wednesday.

Agar will play for Western Australia in the ending stages of the domestic season.

The 29- time-old left- arm incentive is the rearmost Australian to return home midway into the stint, with the callers having lost the first two Tests of the four- match series.

“(Agar) has worked incredibly hard, he’s done his absolute stylish to support the platoon. We admit all work he’s done, he’s worked his backside off, ” Dodemaide said.

“In the first Test( in Nagpur) it was a veritably close call( between Murphy, Agar and Swepson) as to what spin structure we went with. The question mark of whether the two off- baits could go together, ” said the chooser on stint.

“We had Matthew Kuhnemann coming in for the alternate Test – again a veritably close call with that. We just decided that Matthew’s style would be suited to the conditions there. ” Agar has returned home without playing any match as out- incentive Todd Murphy was named ahead of him for the first Test in Nagpur. In the alternate Test, indeed though Australia decided for three baits, Agar was again left out, with fellow left- arm incentive Matthew Kuhnemann making his debut.

The third Test of the Border- Gavaskar jewel begins in Indore on March 1. The final match will be played in Ahmedabad from March 9.

Opening batter David Warner and fast bowler Josh Hazlewood have formerly returned home after being ruled out with injuries.

Agar is set to play in WA’s coming Sheffield Shield game on March 2 and the 50- over Marsh Cup final on March 8.

Leg- incentive Mitchell Swepson, who went back home previous to the alternate Test in Delhi for the birth of his child, and commander Pat Cummins, who returned home for family reasons, are listed to join the touring team ahead of the Indore game.

Agar has played just five Tests since making his debut in 2013 and he has come a top transnational limited- overs bowler in recent times.

“That’s for others to judge but it seems to be going that way, ” the chooser said when asked about adding difficulty for players to switch between formats.

“Ronnie( trainer Andrew McDonald) has talked about the difficulty of remaining an each- format player in any discipline, spinning inversely so. There are veritably many who can acclimate really snappily and who are suited to all three formats.

“To be fair to Ash he does n’t play a lot of first- class justice either and that’s the nature of the ultramodern game.

“He’s continuing to work on that, he’s worked really hard on that with the trainers, particularly( assistant trainer and former left- arm incentive) Dan Vettori. But right now( returning home) is a logical and formative way forward for Ash and the platoon. ” Agar is likely to return to India in March for the ODI leg of the stint.
