The uncapped Cameron Green has been included in Australia's squad for this year's ODI and T20I series against India.
Green has been in prolific form for Western Australia in first-class cricket – and was part of the Perth Scorchers' Big Bash League campaign earlier this year.
“Cameron's domestic form has been outstanding and he has carried it through for Western Australia this summer,” said selection chairman Trevor Hohns.
“As a potential player of the future this is an opportunity for him to be part of the squad and build on his experience. We've had our eye on him for some time now. Like our one-day squad we can assume our Test squad will be a bit bigger than normal so he'll certainly come into contention.
“But that doesn't mean there's pressure on anyone else because our Test side has performed very well and is pretty stable. I don't envisage too much pressure being exerted on any of the incumbents immediately.”
All-rounder Moises Henriques, who has not played international cricket since 2017, has been recalled. Fellow all-rounder Mitchell Marsh is still sidelined by an ankle injury sustained while playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2020 Indian Premier League.
“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,” added Hohns.
“Mitchell 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.
“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.”
