Sydney - Ahead of next month’s tour of India, Australia have decided to rest key batsmen David Warner and Usman Khawaja as the duo will not take part in the Chappell-Hadlee series against New Zealand.

Warner will be rested completely, while Khawaja will travel to Dubai for the pre-tour training camp, interim chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns confirmed.

He also revealed that Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch have been recalled.

"David has had a very big summer and will benefit from a break in cricket, both mentally and physically," Hohns said in a statement.

"He will travel to Dubai in the second group of departures to coincide with those players arriving from the one-day series in New Zealand.

"This gives Aaron an opportunity to return to the side. His form in the Big Bash League has been very good and he has earned his recall.

"With Usman heading to Dubai in the first group of players this provides Shaun with a chance to get back into international cricket following his injury earlier in the summer."
