Chennai - Ravindra Jadeja has earned a recall to India's one-day squad after replacing injured spinner Axar Patel for the first three matches against Australia, the country's cricket board said Saturday.

Left-arm spinner Patel sprained his ankle while training for the first of the five ODIs in Chennai on Sunday, making way for Jadeja's inclusion in the 15-man squad.

"Axar sprained his left ankle during a practice session and has been advised rest. The medical team is monitoring his recovery," said a Board of Control for Cricket in India statement.

Left-arm bowler Jadeja, who last played an ODI against West Indies in July, had been rested along with fellow spinner Ravichandran Ashwin to test India's new generation of slow bowlers.
