NEW DELHI: India’s limited-over vice-captain and senior opener Rohit Sharma was on Monday left out of all three squads for the tour of Australia due to a recurring hamstring injury which is set to rule him out of the remaining part of the Indian Premier League as well. In Rohit’s absence, KL Rahul will be Virat Kohli‘s deputy in the white ball teams. Rohit picked up the injury during the ongoing IPL in the UAE.
Pacer Mohammed Siraj is the fifth speedster in the Test squad as reported by the while Kolkata Knight Riders’ mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy has made it to the T2O International squad.

Fast bowler Ishant Sharma, who is nursing a muscle tear, and Rohit will be monitored by the BCCI medical team.
