The three-match Indian ODI series will play from October 6 and will end on October 11. However, within just six days of their last international match, Team India will play a warm-up match against Australia ahead of the T20 WC. Hence, the India T20 WC squad will be leaving for Australia by October 10 to acclimatize to the conditions and time zones. This is why the board of directors decided to have a completely separate team for the ODI series.

However, there could be a change of plans if Rahul Dravid decides to have an ODI practice before T20 WC. According to InsideSport’s understanding, Dravid wants players to enjoy as much competitive practice as possible. We could see some players in T20 WC playing in the ODI series. The likes of KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel who didn’t have much training, could get the nod. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya will be rested in this case.

“Rahul wants the players to get better competitive training. But we think it could be harmful. However, it will be brought up for discussion during the selection meeting and we will decide the right time. If Rahul decides to stay with the team for an ODI match, the team will leave for Australia with players from South Africa.” On October 12, “ BCCI official said.

It should be noted that South Africa will have a T20 World Cup team playing in the ODIs. South Africa will also start their T20 warm-up tournament on October 17 against New Zealand.
