Short added to ODI squad

D'Arcy Short has been called into Australia's squad for the upcoming ODI tour of India.

Short replaces quick bowler Sean Abbott who has been ruled out due to a side strain suffered while bowling in the BBL.

Abbott is set to be on the sidelines for up to six weeks.

Chairman of Selectors Trevor Hohns said it was unfortunate for Abbott but it provided an opportunity for Short.

"D'Arcy offers the squad another spinning allrounder option along with Ashton Agar, which along with the four world class fast bowlers and Adam Zampa balances the squad out nicely. His proven record and ability to bat anywhere in the order will also be a great asset to the squad."

Australia ODI squad: Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (vc), Pat Cummins (vc), Peter Handscomb, Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Kane Richardson, D’Arcy Short, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Ashton Turner, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
