Kane Richardson's side injury has meant a place for Andrew Tye in Australia's ODI squad for the series against India.

Paceman Richardson has returned home from the tour after being unable to shake off the problem he picked up ahead of the T20 series.

I'd like to think I'm still part of the World Cup picture.

The 28-year-old misses out after being the leading wicket-taker in the Big Bash League and leading the Melbourne Renegades to the title.

Team physio David Beakley said: "Kane reported some left side pain at training prior to the opening T20I in Vizag; unfortunately he has not recovered well enough in order to play a further part in the tour.

"Kane will return home to continue his rehabilitation and we will monitor his progress over the coming weeks."

Tye joins fellow quicks Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff in the touring party for the five-match series that starts on Saturday.

The West Australian and Shaun Marsh, who missed the Twenty20 leg of the tour to be home for the birth of his second child, have linked up with the squad in Hyderabad.

Tye played the most recent of his seven ODIs last year in England when he finished with figures of 0-100 at Trent Bridge.

The 32-year-old, who has since played 14 T20 internationals, said: "They communicated to me when I got dropped as to why I was dropped; they just said I was a bit unreliable in the power play.

"I definitely don't feel like I'm out of contention. I'd like to think I'm still part of the World Cup picture."

Australia are 7/4 to win their first ODI against India, who are 4/9.
