The 2nd ODI will be played on November 29 and the final ODI on December 2 in Sydney. The ODIs will be followed by three T20Is starting from December 4.

The much-anticipated India's tour of Australia will get underway as both sides lock horns in the first of the three-match ODI series.

"In connection with the death of Diego Armando Maradona, the president of the country has declared three days of mourning starting today," Sputnik quoted the statement from the President's office.

The Virat Kohli-led side will be without the services of Rohit Sharma as the right-handed batsman is currently at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) to gain his full fitness. Rahul is also the vice-captain of India's white-ball team in the absence of Rohit.

The full list of nominations was announced on Tuesday on the official website of ICC and the winners will be decided on the basis of the number of votes a player receives.

Rohit is currently at NCA in Bengaluru undergoing rehabilitation for the hamstring injury sustained in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL).

India and Australia will first lock horns against each other in three ODIs and three T20Is first and then both sides will shift their attention to the longest format of the game.
