Australia Thread (Eng vs Aus in sep.2020?)

Australia include uncapped trio in 26-man preliminary squad

July 16 2020


Stoinis is back in the mix for a spot in Australia's limited-overs squads.

With an eye on a potential limited-overs series in England in September, Cricket Australia on Thursday (July 16) named a 26-member preliminary squad consisting of the uncapped trio of Daniel Sams, Riley Meredith and Josh Philippe.

Notably, Glenn Maxwell, who hasn't played for Australia since last October, has made the cut. Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh and Nathan Coulter-Nile - all part of the 2019 World Cup campaign - have been overlooked. Allrounder Marcus Stoinis, who was dropped from Australia's limited-overs squads recently and wasn't handed a national contract, is back in contention again.


Out of favour in white-ball cricket lately, Travis Head and Usman Khawaja have also got the nod. Following injuries to Jhye Richardson and Jason Behrendorff, pacer Andrew Tye has been named in the 26-member squad despite not fetching a state contract recently.

Australia's preliminary squad: Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Michael Neser, Josh Philippe, Daniel Sams, D'Arcy Short, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.

Acknowledging that there remain several hurdles to overcome, CA termed the move as 'a positive step, albeit not a definitive one'.

"We continue to work with the ECB and government agencies and a decision on the tour will be made in due course" said Ben Oliver, Cricket Australia Executive General Manager of National Teams. "In the meantime, the identification of a preliminary list will enable us to work with players and states more directly on the preparation for the tour in the hope it can proceed.


"The health and well-being of players and staff, along with our commitment to public health within our communities, remain our utmost priority."

National Selector Trevor Hohns noted that the rationale behind such an extensive list is not only to ensure the Australian team has cover in case of contingencies, but also a view towards the two upcoming World Cups.

"This preliminary list covers the contingencies of playing One-Day Internationals and T20 Internationals in bio-secure hubs with the likely prospect of not being able to bring in replacements should the tour proceed.

"The preliminary list includes several exciting young players who have recently excelled at state level and in the BBL... [and] are among those we would like to develop further as we believe they have a bright future in Australian cricket. The preliminary list also has a view towards the upcoming T20 WC and in the longer term the 2023 ICC World Cup."

The final squad will be announced if and when the tour is confirmed.

Cameron Green earns maiden Australia call-up for India ODIs, T20Is

Batting allrounder Cameron Green has earned his maiden international call-up for Australia in the 18-man squad announced Thursday for the upcoming limited-overs games against India. Moises Henriques has been recalled to the national side whereas injured allrounder Mitchell Marsh has been left out on advice from the medical staff.

Nathan Lyon, Josh Philippe, Riley Meredith and Andrew Tye also didn't find a place in the squad.

Australia's white-ball squad: Aaron Finch (c), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins (vc), Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Daniel Sams, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa

"The entire squad performed exceptionally well in the UK in beating the current one-day World Champions at home and retaining the World No.1 ranking in T20 International cricket. We look forward to a blockbuster summer against one of our greatest rivals," said national selector Trevor Hohns.

Green, 21, has played only nine one-day games for Western Australia and 13 T20s for Perth Scorchers, but has made waves in the domestic circuit with his impressive first-class outings. He has already hit a 197 in the ongoing Sheffield Shield season to add to his 158* earlier in the year. With the ball, Green averages 21 in red-ball cricket and even picked a five-wicket haul on debut as a 17-year-old.

"Cameron's domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer," national selector Trevor Hohns said. "As a potential player of the future this is an opportunity for him to be part of the squad and build on his experience."

New South Wales all-rounder Moises Henriques, who last played for Australia in 2017, also returns to the fold in the absence of Mitchell Marsh. He captained the Sydney Sixers to Big Bash League title last summer and had a season strike rate of around 150.

"Moises is a tremendous cricketer with loads of experience and is a great person to have around the group. His form was extremely impressive in leading the Sixers to the BBL title last summer and he has played well at the start of this season," Hohns said.

Mitchell Marsh, who suffered an ankle injury in the Indian Premier League, will now have a chance to impress for Australia A in the warm-up games against India in the lead up to the Test series.

"Mitch will commence some low intensity fitness and skills in the coming weeks and selectors are hopeful of his return to play in the Australia A fixtures in early December and then for him to be fully fit to perform his role in the side as an all-rounder," Hohns said. "What we do have is like for like replacements in Moises and Cameron as batting all-rounders in line with our selection approach for one-day cricket."

Australia play the first of the three ODIs against India on November 27. The three-match T20I series starts December 4.
