SYDNEY: Top-order batsman Shaun Marsh was recalled to Australia’s Twenty20 side, joining others who impressed in the domestic Big Bash League to take on Sri Lanka later this month.
Chief selector John Inverarity said Marsh was among six players in the squad who did not feature in last year’s ICC World Twenty20 event in Sri Lanka. “Each of these six, Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, Adam Voges, Ben Cutting, James Faulkner and Ben Laughlin has shown outstanding form in the T20 format over the past two months,” said Inverarity.
“Their performances have been compelling and we anticipate they will take this momentum into the two fixtures.” Australia play two T20 internationals against Sri Lanka, one in Sydney on January 26 and in Melbourne on January 28. Australia T20 squad includes George Bailey (captain), Cutting, Xavier Doherty, Faulkner, Finch, Laughlin, Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Voges, Matthew Wade and David Warner.
