Team India opener Shikhar Dhawan will miss the first three ODIs against Australia to attend his unwell wife, the BCCI said today.

The All India senior selection committee has decided not to name any replacement for the in-form opener.

"Team India opener Shikhar Dhawan has requested to be released from the team for the first three ODIs of the Paytm Australia tour of India, 2017 to attend to his wife, who is unwell. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has decided not to name any replacement for Dhawan in Indian Cricket Team," an official statement from the BCCI statement said today.

Earlier, the southpaw had missed last few games against Sri Lanka as he had travelled back to India to meet his ailing mother.

The men in blue will kick-off their long home season against Australia, where the first ODI of the five-match series is scheduled for September 17 in Chennai.UNI KU PY
