Australia have opted to rest veteran batsman Mike Hussey for their upcoming CB Series encounter with India in Adelaide, with all-rounder Mitchell Marsh brought into the squad as his replacement.

Hussey helped Australia record a second successive victory in the one-day tri-angular series on Friday as the home side narrowly overcame Sri Lanka by five runs in Perth.

The victory sees Australia go into Sunday's match against India in Adelaide unbeaten, however Hussey and seamer Ben Hilfenhaus will not feature in their third game.

"Mike Hussey is to be rested and will not travel with the squad to Adelaide while Ben Hilfenhaus has returned to Hobart and will not join the squad for tomorrow's (Sunday's) match," Cricket Australia said.

Australia have yet to name their squad for the remaining games in the series, which continues until March 8.
