Western Australia have announced two changes to the 13-player squad ahead of their Marsh Sheffield Shield clash against Victoria starting Saturday at the MCG. 

Paceman Simon Mackin has been recalled to the side for the first time this season, while Ashton Turner and D’Arcy short have been left out. 
Head Coach Adam Voges said;
“Simon hasn’t played Sheffield Shield cricket since Round 1 last year after battling with injuries and form, but he has worked really hard and it’s great to have him back in the squad. 
“Ashton was a hard decision, ultimately his recent performances haven’t been his best and it means he misses this trip.” 
“We’ve picked an extra bowler in this squad so D’Arcy has missed out as well, it’s a strong group which leads to some tough selection decisions.”

Injury Update: 

WA all-rounder Cameron Green has been ruled out of bowling following recent scans on his lower back. 
Sports Science Sports Medicine Manager Nick Jones said;
“Follow up scans this week on Cameron’s lower back have revealed the early stages of a lumbar stress fracture. 
“This will require an extended period of rest from bowling to ensure the fracture heals adequately. 
“No timeframe has been set for Cameron to return to bowling, however we are not expecting him to be bowling during the BBL. He will continue to be available for selection as a batter.”
