After the Champions League 2013, the focus now shifts to the only Twenty20 and seven-match ODI series between India and Australia. The Indians will be glad to have a fit Yuvraj Singh back in the team.

The match, which is expected to set the tone for a gruelling season ahead, promises to be an exciting face-off at the SCA Stadium, with Australia keen to test their young players before the return Ashes showdown with England.

However, the focus will be primarily on Yuvraj, who would be eager to prove a point after being recalled to the squad following a string of good scores for India A against the Windies A and a solid display for India Blue in the Challenger Series.

The 31-year-old had also scored a quick-fire 52 off 35 balls against the West Indies A in a T20 game in Bangalore.

Apart from his explosive batting, Yuvraj’s left-arm spin will also be handy in the shortest form of the game.

Teams:

India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Vinay Kumar, Ishant Sharma.

Australia: Aaron Finch, Shane Watson, George Bailey (c), Glenn Maxwell, Brad Haddin (wk), Moises Henriques, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Nic Maddinson, James Faulkner, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty
