Sean Abbott (New South Wales)
Joe Burns (Queensland)
Alex Carey (South Australia) (c)
Harry Conway (New South Wales)
Cameron Green (Western Australia)
Marcus Harris (Victoria)
Moises Henriques (New South Wales)
Nic Maddinson (Victoria)
Ben McDermott (Tasmania)
Mark Steketee (Queensland)
Will Sutherland (Victoria)
Mitchell Swepson (Queensland)
National Selector Trevor Hohns said four members of Australia’s Test squad would play in the day-night tour match at the SCG.
“Joe Burns, Cameron Green, Sean Abbott and Mitchell Swepson will derive great benefit from playing high quality opposition against the pink ball in the final tour match,” Hohns said.
“All have enjoyed an excellent preparation for the Vodafone Test series and the NSP believes a final hit-out against India’s bowlers under lights will round it out nicely.
“They will join the rest of the Australian Test squad in Adelaide at the conclusion of the tour match for what promises to be a thrilling Test series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.”
