India has been dealt a big blow ahead of the series against Australia as all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been ruled out of the series with stiffness to the lower back.

1st and 2nd ODI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Ambati Rayudu, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav, Siddarth Kaul, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja.

Pandya had earlier suffered a lower-back injury during the Asia Cup match against Pakistan and had to be stretchered off the field. "Mr. Pandya will begin his strength work from next week", said the BCCI in a statement.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya will not feature in the upcoming home series against Australia, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Thursday. The 25-year-old will undergo strength and conditioning training at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru from next week.

"Those 20-30 runs made all the difference today", head coach Ravi Shastri spoke about the all-rounder after the 5th ODI match against New Zealand. Mohali and Delhi are the venues for the last two ODIs which will be played on March 10 and 13 respectively.

While Hardik was recalled during the limited-over series against the Kiwis, Rahul recently made his return to the Indian squad for the Australia series.

The two-match T20I series against Australia begins on Sunday, in Visakhapatnam, while the 50-over contests begin March 3 in Hyderabad.
