Adelaide: Australia have decided to rest veteran batsman Mike Hussey and bring in all-rounder Mitchell Marsh for the tri-series one-dayer against India on Sunday.

The 36-year-old Hussey will be back for Australia`s next match against Sri Lanka in Sydney on February 17.

"Mr Cricket having a well earned rest. He will be back for Syd," tweeted Australian skipper Michael Clarke.

Apart from Hussey, pacemen Ben Hilfenhaus will also sit out of tomorrow`s match while uncapped batsman Peter Forrest has again been named in the squad.

Squad: Michael Clarke (capt), Dan Christian, Xavier Doherty, Peter Forrest, Ryan Harris, David Hussey, Mitchell Marsh, Clint McKay, Ricky Ponting, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, David Warner.
