A total of 3 players part of all as we look at the official T20 squad and players list for Team India for the last three series ahead of India vs Australia 2023.
The ODI World Cup 2023 is going on in full flow, and as expected, Team India became the first team to qualify for the semi-finals. It has been a dominant performance by Team India with an unbeaten 7-match streak so far. Almost everyone from the team has performed to make this look like a complete team effort.
With ODIs gaining popularity in the last 1 year due to ODI World Cup 2023, the focus will once again shift to T20s post the World Cup. India will be facing their first assignment post the World Cup with a 5-match T20 series against the mighty Kangaroos. The 5-match T20 series begins on November 23 with the last T20 being played on December 03.
The Australian team recently announced the official T20 series squad. However, the Indian team are yet to announce the squad in lieu of the World Cup. We are expecting the announcement by BCCI very soon. But before that, let’s look at the official squad for Team India for the last three T20 series.

The very next T20 series post the IPL 2023 saw quite a good number of changes in the squad. With IPL 2023 performance as the benchmark, India dropped Prithvi Shaw, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rahul Tripathi, Jitesh Sharma, Deepak Hooda, and Shivam Mavi. But the ones who got the opportunity include Tilak Varma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Axar Patel, and Ravi Bishnoi.

The most recent T20 series was played between India and Ireland. The series saw India resting a lot of first-choice T20 players due to Asia Cup commitment. Hence, the team had a lot of new faces in the form of Rinku Singh, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Prasidh Krishna, and Jasprit Bumrah, who was the Captain.
With India taking on Australia after the ODI World Cup 2023, we should once again see quite a good number of changes in the squad. Expect India to once again rest Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya. But the ones that are likely to return are Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, and Axar Patel.
