With quicks Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson already in Australia's ODI squad, selectors have called in Short, a top-order batter who also bowls wrist spin, to replace fast man Abbott.
If Short plays in India, it will mark his first game back in Australian colours since February, and comes at a key time given the Twenty20 World Cup is at the end of the 2020.
Unless there’s an injury, Short will likely bat in the middle order given David Warner and Aaron Finch are locked into the opening roles.
Short has played four ODIs for Australia, hitting 83 runs at an average of 26.66.
National Selector Trevor Hohns said;
"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."
