Marsh Brothers Axed From Test Squad To Play Sri Lanka

Article heading image for Will Pucovski Named In Australia's Test Squad For Sri Lanka Series

After making plentiful changes to their ODI squad for the imminent ODI series against India, the Australian selectors put on display a mini-replica of the same while selecting the 13-member squad for the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. Tremaine, who also plays for Victoria, is yet to play in Tests and took part in four ODI matches since his debut in 2016, which was also the a year ago when he played for the Baggy Greens.

Red-ball specialists now running drinks in the Big Bash League, including former Test bowlers Jackson Bird and Joe Mennie plus highly-rated NSW batsman Kurtis Patterson, may also be drafted into the CA XI.

Also axed from the 13-man squad after the humbling 2-1 series defeat to India were underperforming opener Aaron Finch and middle-order batsman Peter Handscomb. Aaron Finch, Peter Handscomb and Marsh brothers have found themselves out of the side. "We see him as a long-term prospect as a Test player and have confidence in his ability to bounce back following a string of low scores early in the Shield season", Horns further added.

"Joe Burns has had strong performances in first-class cricket this season, and we believe he can contribute strongly if given the chance in the series".

National selector Trevor Hohns said: "Will Pucovski is an exciting young player who is making his mark in the Sheffield Shield".

The right-hander started Victoria's campaign with a bang, becoming the ninth player in Shield history to score a double-century before a 21st birthday. However, he has only played eight first-class matches because of mental health issues. He also performed extremely well in England during the County season.

Renshaw belted three hundreds while scoring 513 runs in 11 county innings for Somerset, helping him to the top of the world's first-class run scoring charts by June previous year. Burns had scores of 96 and an unbeaten 80 in the Sheffield Shield and is averaging 47.20 with 472 runs including four fifties. The tour match begins next Thursday, and like the first Test at the Gabba is a day-night fixture to be played with the pink ball.

Meanwhile, Renshaw played last of his 11 Tests in March-April 2018 when he had to fly to South Africa for the final Test after ball-tampering scandal broke out in Cape Town.
