While Shankar will join the team before the start of the second One Day International (ODI) in Adelaide and will be a part of the squad for the ODI series in Australia and the tour to New Zealand, Gill has been picked only for the ODI and T20I series in New Zealand.
"With K.L. Rahul and Hardik Pandya set to return from Australia, the All-India Senior Selection Committee has decided to send all-rounder Vijay Shankar and batsman Shubman Gill as replacements," a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) statement said late on Saturday.
On Saturday, India went down by 34 runs in the first of the three ODIs against Australia.
The second and third ODIs will be played on Tuesday and Friday at Adelaide and Melbourne, respectively.
