Bumrah bowled more overs (157.1) than any other fast bowler in the four-Test series in Australia, featuring only behind Nathan Lyon's 242.1 overs as the two finished as the joint-highest wicket-takers in the series.

Bumrah will also not play the 3-match T20I series against New Zealand, the BCCI announced in a press release on Tuesday.

India squad for the ODIs against Australia and New Zealand: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami. "Mohammed Siraj will replace Bumrah in the squad for the Australia and New Zealand tour", BCCI said in a statement. But he has been in stellar form with the red ball while representing India A since July. The 24-year-old also travelled with India A to New Zealand where he took seven wickets in three 50-over encounters. More recently, he toured New Zealand as part of the India A squad for three first-class matches in which he took seven wickets in three innings.

Bumrah picked nine wickets while conceding just 86 runs at the MCG, registering a dominant performance against the hosts, despite enjoying comparatively limited experience in the longer format of the game.

India are slated to play their first ODI against Australia on January 12 in Sydney, followed by the second ODI on January 15 in Adelaide and the third ODI being on January 18 in Melbourne. The five-match ODI series against the Black Caps will get underway from January 23, and the tour will then end with three T20Is (February 6, 8 and 10).
