Sydney: Pace spearhead Mitchell Starc was on Thursday ruled out of Australia's Twenty20 and one-day tour of India with a "substantial" muscle tear, joining fellow quick bowler Josh Hazlewood on the sidelines.
Australia play two T20s and five ODIs against the Indians from later this month as part of an important build-up to their World Cup title defence in England this year.
But they will be doing so with a depleted attack.
Starc, Man-of-the-Match after collecting 10 wickets in the second Test against Sri Lanka in Canberra this week, will miss the series.
Hazlewood remains sidelined as he recuperates from back damage grabbed in Australia's Test arrangement misfortune to India.
Eleven of the 14 players that went up against Virat Kohli's men in an ongoing one-day arrangement misfortune in Australia have been held.
Be that as it may, veteran seamer Peter Siddle, quick bowler Billy Stanlake and all-rounder Marsh were dropped, which has opened the entryway for pacemen Kane Richardson and Nathan Coulter-Nile, and hard-hitting batsman Ashton Turner.
With Hazlewood out, Pat Cummins was named co-bad habit commander close by Alex Carey. Aaron Finch remains captain.
Opener D'Arcy Short was incorporated as spread for Shaun Marsh as he recuperates from hamstring damage. Short is required to play in the two T20s with Marsh joining the squad following the introduction of his second youngster.
The squad for the Pakistan arrangement, that promptly pursues India, will be named later with the likelihood that Steve Smith and David Warner might be considered for the last part once their bans for ball-altering lapse on 29 March.
