Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
The Australia selectors have dropped Glenn Maxwell from the ODI squad to tour India in January despite him being available to play following a mental health break. Uncapped batsman Marnus Labuschagne has been included in Australia's 14-man squad for the tour of India. Maxwell will make his return on BBL this week and has declared he is available to play for Australia, however national selector Trevor Hohns said they will monitor his form in the BBL rather than take him to India. Australia have also included the pace duo of Sean Abbott and Kane Richardson, to go with the experienced trio of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood. Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar will share the spin responsibilities even as Nathan Lyon had usurped the position of the lead spinner in the 50-over setup during the world cup. Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, and Marcus Stoinis have not been selected despite being in the World Cup squad and touring India with the ODI team early this year.
Australian selectors have recalled Peter Siddle to the Test squad after having dropped him for the home series following the Ashes. He has come into the 13-man Test squad as a replacement for the injured Josh Hazlewood for the Boxing day Test against New Zealand. "Peter has been brought in as a 13th player for Melbourne," Hohns said. "He is a proven Test match performer with an exceptional knowledge of the MCG which will be a valuable part of our preparation."
