The tour will include 3 T20s, 5 ODIs and 2 Tests.

The players who missed out on the limited-overs series against Pakistan will also be playing in this series as well.

All of Australia’s experienced players such as Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazelwood, Glenn Maxwell, David Warner, Steve Smith and Matthew Wade are seeing a return.

Ben Mcdermott did not find a place in the squad although he did hit an ODI century against Pakistan last month.

Adam Zampa will not be featuring in the entire series due to the arrival of his first child.

This tour will also be Andrew McDonald’s first as Australia’s full-time head coach.
