Finch, Faulkner and White in Australian T20 Squad

Cricket Australia’s National Selection Panel (NSP) has today announced the following squad for the KFC T20 INTL Series against South Africa which will open the 2014-15 international summer of cricket at the Adelaide Oval on 5 November.

The 13-player Australian T20 squad is:

Aaron Finch (c) – Vic/Renegades

Sean Abbott – NSW/Sixers

Doug Bollinger – NSW/Sixers

Cameron Boyce – QLD/Hurricanes

Patrick Cummins – NSW/Thunder

Ben Cutting – QLD/Heat

Ben Dunk (wk) – TAS/Hurricanes

James Faulkner – TAS/Stars

Nic Maddinson – NSW/Sixers

Nathan Reardon – QLD/Heat

Kane Richardson – SA/Strikers

Shane Watson – NSW/Heat

Cameron White – VIC/Stars

Commenting on the squad, National Selector Rod Marsh said: “While the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 seems a long time away, the nature of short T20 series at international level means every match between now and then is a great opportunity for players to show what they’re capable of against high quality opposition.

“This series of three matches provides new captain Aaron Finch the opportunity to really work with the T20 squad after commencing his tenure as captain with a win against Pakistan in the one-off T20 a couple of weeks ago.

“The squad itself includes a good blend of youth and experience, providing Aaron with multiple options with both bat and ball. We’ve seen some good form in Matador One-Day Cup recently from players such as Cameron White, Nathan Reardon, Ben Dunk and Ben Cutting and they’ve been rewarded for those good performances.

“Shane Watson also returns from injury and we certainly know the destruction he is capable of causing in this format of the game.

“We may also look to add a player to this squad following the naming of the second Test team in the UAE,” Marsh said.

 The Australian T20 squad, coached by Trevor Bayliss while Darren Lehmann is away, will assemble in Adelaide on 1 November.
