But what has become the talk of the town is the fact that KL Rahul has been axed. There is a total of six matches, three ODI's and three T20I's. Rahul was included in the limited-overs series against Australia but didn't feature in the playing XI even in a single match. We will see how it goes [as far as his batting position is concerned]. Shikhar Dhawan, who had sought leave for the Australia ODIs to be with his ill wife, also returned to the 15-man squad. We are open to different combinations and options.
