Both Pandya and Rahul are currently in Australia with the Indian team. Pandya was recalled into the Test side for the third and fourth match while Rahul was already part of the squad.
Pandya, however, did not feature in the Tests but is very much likely to play in the One-Day International (ODI) series. Rahul is also part of the ODI squad, but after his string of failures in the recently concluded Test series, it remains to be seen whether he finds a place in the playing XI or not. The three-match ODI series starts in Sydney on January 12.
