Allrounder Aaron Hardie has been added to the T20I squad. Kane Richardson will replace Spencer Johnson in the T20I series since he has a hamstring injury.

Australia will be playing six more T20I series before the start of next year's T20 edition in the West Indies and the USA. The 35-year-old Aussie wicketkeeper-batter Matthew Wade will lead the World Cup winners in their upcoming T20I series against India.
The first match will take place at Visakhapatnam on November 23, just four days after the conclusion of India's ICC Cricket World Cup campaign at home with a loss to Australia by six wickets in the final at Ahmedabad.
