Australian Selectors have left struggling batsman David Warner out of their 14-member squad set to tour India this October meanwhile surprisingly including the experienced Wicket-Keeper Batsman Brad Haddin.

Also excluded from the squad was the Pakistan-born spinner Fawad Ahmed, as selectors feel that Xavier Doherty his better suited for the Indian Conditions.

Australian squad is as follows : 

Michael Clarke (capt), George Bailey (vc), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Xavier Doherty, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Brad Haddin, Moises Henriques, Phil Hughes, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell, Clint McKay, Adam Voges, Shane Watson.
