Shaun Marsh, Ashton Turner, Marcus Stoinis, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and D'Arcy Short have been named in the squad.

The Australian Men’s team will play two T20I matches and five ODI matches against India.

Ashton Turner said he is honoured to be selected to represent the country in the ODI squad for the first time.

“As a kid growing up watching one day cricket here live at the WACA and on TV and now to think that I’m a part of the One Day squad travelling to India, well it’s like a dream come true," he said.

"I honestly had tingles going down my spine when I got the call yesterday, so I’m really excited about this opportunity.

"I know all the hard work starts now but I can't wait to get over."

National selector Trevor Hohns said Turner is a quality inclusion in the team.

“I’d like to congratulate Ashton Turner on his selection in the squad. Ashton has been on our radar for some time, given his performances in the shorter formats," Hohns said.

"Ashton is a smart cricketer who reads the game well and provides us with another strong batting option. He’s been in good form over the summer, and he has an opportunity to put his case forward ahead of the World Cup."
