NSW Blues name squad for Marsh ODC opener
The NSW Blues have selected a 13-player squad for their opening Marsh One-Day Cup match of the season, a clash with Victoria at the MCG on Friday.
The Blues, who won the One-Day Cup last summer, went down to the Victorians in their latest Marsh Sheffield Shield fixture that concluded at the MCG yesterday.
The squad, to be led by skipper Kurtis Patterson, contains seven players from outside the 11 that played the most recent Shield game, including Australian One-Day representative Moises Henriques, Harry Conway, Ollie Davies, Ben Dwarshuis, Tanveer Sangha, Chris Tremain and the un-contracted Hayden Kerr.
Nathan Lyon and fellow Ashes hopeful Sean Abbott were not considered for selection as they prepare for the summer ahead.
Following the One-Day Cup match, the Blues and the Victorians return to Sydney for four-day and one-day fixtures at the SCG later in the month.
