India's limited-overs 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 IPL 2020 as well.

BCCI on Monday said their medical team will monitor Rohit Sharma's progress, along with Ishant Sharma. Ishant who plays for Delhi Capitals was ruled out of IPL 2020 after he "experienced an acute episode of left rib cage pain while bowling at a team training session on October 7, 2020 in Dubai."

In Rohit's absence, KL Rahul will be skipper Virat Kohli's deputy in the white ball teams.

India and Australia will play three ODIs, three T20Is, and four Tests against each other. The Test series will be a part of the World Test Championship. The series is set to get underway from November 27.
