Mumbai, Oct 21 (ANI): Australian cricket team led by Ricky Ponting arrived in Mumbai to play a seven-match one-day international (ODI) series against hosts India on Tuesday.

The first match will be played in Baroda on October 25 and the second in Nagpur on October 28.

Indian squad was also seen sweating it out at the nets in Mumbai.

Opener Virender Sehwag has been recalled to the India squad following shoulder surgery for the first two games of the series, though Rahul Dravid was dropped.

Sehwag missed the Twenty20 World Cup, and the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa while recovering from the surgery.

Batsman Yuvraj Singh, who missed the Champions Trophy with a broken finger, was named in the 15-player squad in the hope he would be fit to start the seven-match series.

Uncapped 22-year-old pace bowler Sudeep Tyagi was also included after some good domestic performances for Uttar Pradesh. (ANI)
