In my experience, for shifting teams within the company, on has to prove themselves that he/she is best suited to the new team and adds better value to the company working in that team, rather than the current team.
When, the data science team at my company is being set up. There was a guy who was a Linux admin.; who have contributed really well, giving his ideas about setting up the architecture and practises; so we felt his need is much needed in the current team (as the data science team is being set up for identifying churn, insights in MRR, etc), owing to his knowledge and experience, rather than the team which he is working on.
So, get identified by giving ideas and contributing towards the setup, or have a talk with your senior or the one in charge about your interests, and how the shift is going to help the company and you personally, or if you cannot reach him; pass on the information via the HR.
