Marsh returns as Australia ring changes
Australia have made multiple changes to their Twenty20 squad for the two-match series against Sri Lanka.
Shaun Marsh, Aaron Finch, Adam Voges, James Faulkner, Ben Laughlin and the uncapped Ben Cutting have all been rewarded for their form in the Big Bash League with places in a 12-man party, although there is no room for Luke Pomersbach - an impressive performer at the top of the order for BBL winners Brisbane Heat.
Shane Watson has also been overlooked as he continues his comeback from calf trouble, while David Hussey, Cameron White, Brad Hogg and Dan Christian have fallen out of favour.
Marsh’s return to the international fold represents a notable turnaround for a batsman who suffered a spectacular loss of form in 2012, compounded by disciplinary trouble at the Champions League T20.
The leading scorer in the BBL, he is now set to represent his country again.
“A few months ago I wasn't even picked for WA and I was doubting myself,” Marsh admitted.
“It's just great to play well for the Scorchers, get my name back up there, get the confidence back and I'm really looking forward to playing again and hopefully doing well.”
The opening Twenty20 match will be played in Sydney on Saturday, with Melbourne hosting the second game two days later.
Australia have also named a 13-man squad for the final ODI against Sri Lanka, which takes place in Hobart on Wednesday.
Cutting, called up as cover prior to the third game in Brisbane after making his debut earlier in the series, is the only addition to that group.
Australia squad for T20 series against Sri Lanka: George Bailey (captain), Ben Cutting, Xavier Doherty, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Ben Laughlin, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Adam Voges, Matthew Wade (wicketkeeper), David Warner.
