Callum Ferguson has been added to Australia's One-Day International squad after Shaun Marsh suffered a hamstring injury during the ongoing series against England.

Marsh has injured his right hamstring and is to return to Perth although he could yet feature in the final match of the seven-game series.

Ferguson, who has played 26 One-Day Internationals, was called up for both the remaining matches, in Sydney on 2nd February and then in Perth on 6th February.

“Callum Ferguson has been added to the Australian squad for the final two matches of the Commonwealth Bank Series," National Selection Panel (NSP) chairman Andrew Hilditch said.

"Callum has an excellent record in one-day internationals for Australia and is in good form this season. We are sure Callum will seize the opportunity that comes following the unfortunate hamstring injury suffered by Shaun Marsh."

Marsh had himself been brought into the squad following an injury to Michael Hussey, who was nevertheless still named in Australia's 15-man squad for the 2011 World Cup.

Australia lead the ODI series against England by four games to one and make them 4/5 favourites to win in Sydney, with England available at evens.
