Peter Siddle, who last played for Australia's ODI side back in November 2010, has been recalled to the squad for the upcoming series. But rain played spoilsport as Team India players had to practice indoors at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

The ODI series will begin on March 2 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket Australia (CA) on Thursday announced the schedule for Australia's tour of India in February.

Both T20Is will be night matches starting at 7 pm IST, and all five ODIs day-night games starting at 1.30 pm. The second ODI will be contested in Nagpur on March 5, Tuesday, while Ranchi will host the third ODI on March 8, Friday.

After a successful stint in the Border-Gavaskar series, Virat Kohli & Co will look to continue their dominance in the fifty-over format as well.

Ranveer says he feels bad when someone's film doesn't work at the box office as everyone is a part of the same industry. When " Asli Hip Hop " came out with Spitfire, people were asking who is this kid? Both of them are special to me.

The ODI series is slated to begin on January 12.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Kedhar Jadhav and Ambati Rayudu will be seen in action during the limited-over series against Australia. The quartet primarily took throwdowns as no specialist bowlers from the squad were present for this optional session.

The series will commence shortly after team India wrapping up the New Zealand tour, which is slated to be followed by ongoing series in Australia.

While Dhawan and Rayudu prepared with both the right and left arm throwdown specialists, Dhoni worked in the indoor nets with assistant coach Sanjay Bangar.
