Australia Drop Harris And Recall Pattinson
Australia’s National Selection Panel have made just one change to the ODI squad that will contest the remainder of the Commonwealth Bank tri-series against Sri Lanka and India. They have recalled James Pattinson, who has recovered from his injury, at the expense of Ryan Harris.
National Selector, John Inverarity, said, “James Pattinson is fit again and after impressive recent form in a Futures League match in Adelaide, comes into the squad at expense of Ryan Harris, who has been dropped. Ryan remains strongly in contention for selection for the Test matches on the VB Tour of the West Indies. Michael Clarke is making a good recovery and is likely to resume on Friday. The selectors will consider adding an extra player to this squad for the Commonwealth Bank Series Finals matches, if conditions warrant it.”
Australia’s next match is on 2nd March against Sri Lanka at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
