Bears T20 overseas signing Glenn Maxwell has been named in Australia's ODI squad to face India in March.

Maxwell, who broke his leg in a freak accident in November, returned to action last week.

The all-rounder made 61 for his club side Fitzroy-Doncaster in his first game back in Victorian premier cricket before playing in this week’s Sheffield Shield game against South Australia at the Junction Oval.

Maxwell joins Mitchell Marsh and Jhye Richardson, who also are set to make long-awaited returns to international cricket, as well as former Bear Ashton Agar in the 16-player squad.

“With the World Cup just over seven months away, these matches in India are an important step in our preparation,” Australia chair of selectors George Bailey said. “Glenn, Mitchell and Jhye are all important players in what we think the squad might look like come October.”

The Baggy Greens will travel to Wankhede for the opening ODI (17 March), before heading to Visakhapatnam (19 March) and Chennai (22 March).
