Mumbai: Oct 6, 2013

The Australian cricket team sweated it out at the Cricket Club of India in their first training session ahead of the seven-match ODI series against India that will be preceded by the lone Twenty20 game at Rajkot on October 10.

The ODI rubber commences on October 13 in Pune and concludes in Bangalore on November 2.

The team, which arrived last night, had a light training session and played football in their one-hour outing at CCI.

The visiting team would have another two-day practice session at the CCI before leaving for Rajkot for the opening T20 game and they are expected to have proper net sessions on Monday morning.

Five Australian squad members — Shane Watson, James Faulkner, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell — are representing their IPL teams in the Champions League Twenty20 finals.

The team from Down Under is without regular skipper Michael Clarke and T20 captain George Bailey will lead the side in the former’s absence.

Clarke was ruled out of the tour due to a nagging back injury.

Australian T20 squad: George Bailey (c), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Xavier Doherty, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Brad Haddin (wk), Moises Henriques, Mitchell Johnson, Nic Maddinson, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, Adam Voges, Shane Watson.

Australian ODI squad: George Bailey (c), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Xavier Doherty, James Faulkner, Callum Ferguson, Aaron Finch, Brad Haddin (wk), Moises Henriques, Phil Hughes, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, Adam Voges, Shane Watson.

ODI series schedule:

October 13 — Pune
October 16 — Jaipur
October 19 — Mohali
October 23 — Ranchi
October 26 — Cuttack
October 30 — Nagpur
November 2 — Bangalore.
