Commenting on the squad, National Selector John Inverarity said: “The ODI squad is the same as the squad for the Commonwealth Bank Series finals beginning next week with the addition of three players in Brad Haddin, Nathan Lyon and George Bailey.

“This completes a well-balanced squad and it is anticipated that most players will receive good opportunities to show their worth.

“Shane Watson and Mike Hussey come back into the T20 squad to provide a great deal of experience and power to the batting line-up. If we were to select our best T20 team to play next week the top seven in order would be Watson, Warner, Mike Hussey, David Hussey, Bailey, Wade and Christian. Hence, there was simply no room on this occasion for Shaun Marsh, Travis Birt and Aaron Finch. Though Peter Forrest is in the T20 squad, it is not anticipated he will be in the team and is there as back-up.

“As was stated in January, Brad Hogg was not considered for this tour. However, he remains in strong contention to be a member of our ICC World Twenty20 squad which is likely to include three spin bowlers.

“Additionally, Mitchell Starc has not been selected as a member of this squad. However, Mitchell will travel with this group as a further development opportunity and spend valuable time around the Australian squad in the West Indies,” Inverarity said.
