Australia will rue the services of their two highest-ranked bowlers for next month’s blockbuster showdown against India. Swing bowler Megan Schutt and Jess Jonassen missed out due to niggle and personal obligations respectively as the selection panel named an 18-player group featuring nine potential Test debutantes for the multi-format series.

Queensland batter Georgia Redmayne and 19-year-old NSW fast bowler Stella Campbell have been handed their first international call-ups for the Commonwealth Bank Series against India starting on September 19, which includes three ODIs, one Test and three T20Is.
