A riveting edition of the Indian Premier League came to a close yesterday, and the focus has already shifted to the next high-profile series cricket has to offer - India's tour of Australia.

The tour starts with a 3-match ODI series that starts on November 27, followed by 3 T20Is and 4 Tests.

India's squads for the series did hold a few surprises. Mohammed Siraj was called up to the Test squad, while T Natarajan replaced the injured Varun Chakravarthy in the T20I team. Sanju Samson was named as the backup wicket-keeper in the limited-overs teams, with Rishabh Pant on the plane only for the longest format of the game.

White-ball vice-captain Rohit Sharma has been named only in the red-ball squad, while captain Virat Kohli will miss the final three Tests on paternity leave. In Rohit's absence, KL Rahul has been named as Kohli's deputy.

India won their first-ever Test series in Australia a couple of years ago, and they would be keen on retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
