Mitchell Starc to miss Australia's one-day tour of India ahead of Ashes

Fast bowler Mitchell Starc will miss Australia's limited-overs tour of India as he continues his recovery from a foot injury.
The Aussies will arrive in India on September 17 for five ODIs and three T20 internationals but Starc will be given extra rest ahead of the Ashes series this winter.
Australia physiotherapist David Beakley said: "We have recently reviewed the progress of Mitchell's right foot injury and the healing process has been slower than we would have liked.
"Consequently, in order to ensure his best possible preparation for the Ashes, he will be unavailable for the tour of India and will continue his rehab in Australia, with an aim to have him play for New South Wales in the domestic one-day cup."
Fast bowling all-rounder James Faulkner, who was overlooked for the Champions Trophy and missed out on a national contract, has been handed a recall to the ODI squad, along with Nathan Coulter-Nile.
Josh Hazlewood was named in Australia's initial 50-over squad but pulled out with a side strain and has been replaced in the party by Kane Richardson.
Uncapped Western Australia paceman Jason Behrendorff has been selected in Australia's T20 squad following his return from an injury setback, along with veteran all-rounder Dan Christian and Tasmania wicketkeeper Tim Paine.
Australia squads to play India:
ODI: Steve Smith (captain), Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa
Twenty20: Steve Smith (captain), Jason Behrendorff, Dan Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine, Kane Richardson, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
