Jhye Richardson also makes a return to the Australian team having recovered from a hamstring strain which ruled him out of the BBL finals.
Chair of Selectors George Bailey said: “With the World Cup just over seven months away, these matches in India are an important step in our preparation. Glenn, Mitchell and Jhye are all important players in what we think the squad might look like come October.”
Josh Hazlewood has not been named in the squad to fully overcome an achilles injury as he prepares for a potential World Test Championship final and the Ashes in England.
“It would be great for Josh to be part of this series but we have taken a conservative view ahead of a very important winter in England of which he will be an integral part,” Bailey said.
Australia plays India in Mumbai (March 17), Vizag (March 19) and Chennai (March 22).
