Siraj was last seen in action during the recently-concluded 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The 26-year-old was part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) squad, drawing praise for his performance in a league match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The pacer picked three wickets while conceding 8 runs, during his spell of four overs in that game.  

The Indian team’s tour of Australia comprises of three ODI matches, the same number of T20I ties and four Tests. The first two ODIs will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with the opening 50-over game scheduled to take place on November 27.

Opener Rohit Sharma will not be a part of the limited-overs leg of the series, due to concerns over his overall match fitness. Rohit sustained a hamstring injury during the IPL 2020 while representing champions Mumbai Indians (MI).

Skipper Virat Kohli will return home at the end of the first Test, after being granted paternity leave by the BCCI.
