Bumrah rested; Siraj named replacement for Australia ODIs, NZ tour


India have decided to rest Jasprit Bumrah for the forthcoming ODI series in Australia and the New Zealand tour that comprises five ODIs and three T20Is in January-February. Mohammed Siraj was named Bumrah’s replacement for those series while Siddarth Kaul was added to the squad for the T20I series in New Zealand next month.

Bumrah was rested “keeping in mind the work load of the bowler” to give him adequate rest before the home ODIs and T20Is against Australia in February-March. Bumrah bowled more overs (157.1) than any other fast bowler in the four-Test series in Australia, featuring only behind Nathan Lyon’s tally of 242.1 as the two finished as the joint highest-wicket takers in the series.

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