Duo in line for Australia debuts

February 08, 2013 12:08:26 UK

Nathan Coulter-Nile and Ben Rohrer are set for their first taste of international cricket, after being named in Australia's Twenty20 squad.

The uncapped duo have been given the nod to face the West Indies in a one-off clash at the 'Gabba on Wednesday. Coulter-Nile, the 25-year-old paceman, is rewarded for his sparkling form in Western Australia's latest Sheffield Shield game.

Ben Rohrer had an outstanding season with the Melbourne Renegades in the middle order and Nathan Coulter-Nile has shown very good form in all three formats throughout the summer.

His timely starring role saw him take match figures of 9-125 against Queensland. He grabbed ten wickets at an average of 27.6 for Perth Scorchers during the Big Bash League season, with Shane Warne describing him as one of the country's best players in all three forms of the game.

Rohrer was another who impressed in the BBL, making 295 runs at an average of 49.16 for the Melbourne Renegades.

Brad Haddin and Clint McKay return to the T20 squad, while Josh Hazlewood has also been included.

Australia chairman of selectors John Inverarity said that, with the Australian Test squad heading to India ahead of the T20 game, it gave a chance to less experienced players.

He added: "Ben Rohrer had an outstanding season with the Melbourne Renegades in the middle order and Nathan Coulter-Nile has shown very good form in all three formats throughout the summer.

"Brad Haddin and Clint McKay are experienced campaigners and Josh Hazlewood is one of our very promising young pace bowlers who has recently regained full fitness."

Meanwhile, Aaron Finch has been rewarded for his excellent BBL season by being handed the Australia A captaincy. He will lead the squad for the five-match series against the England Lions which starts on 16th February in Hobart.

Finch was named player of the season in the Big Bash, and made 38 off 41 balls in Wednesday's one-day international win over the West Indies in Canberra.

Tim Paine has been named Finch's deputy, while the squad also includes the likes of Shaun Marsh, Joe Burns, Callum Ferguson and Adam Voges.

Australia are 9.00 to win the Ashes series, with England priced at 1.05. England are 1.001 to retain the Ashes.
