Warner joins a group of multiformat players who will miss the five-match series ahead of the home summer starting with the first Test against Pakistan on December 14.
Warner had a fantastic World Cup where he scored 535 runs at an average of 48.63. The upcoming Pakistan series will be the final leg of his Test career, with him choosing to retire from the format at the SCG in early January.
Despite starting just four days after the ODI World Cup final, the series is part of preparations for next year’s T20 edition in the West Indies and the United States. Australia have to play six more T20 matches before this tournament along with a three-match series against West Indies and New Zealand in February.
The squad now includes seven players who featured during the World Cup as well as Tanvir Sangha who was a reserve for the entire tour.
The series starts from Thursday in Visakhapatnam.
Australia’s T20I team Matthew Wade (captain), Travis Head, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Matt Short, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Josh Inglis, Aaron Hardy, Jason Behrendorff, Sean Abbott, Nathan Ellis, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Tanvir Sangha
