The Cricket Australia National Selection Panel has today announced a 12-man Australia A squad for its five-match limited over series against the England Lions.
The Australia A squad is:
Aaron Finch (c) VIC
Tim Paine (vc) TAS
Cameron Boyce QLD
Joe Burns QLD
Nathan Coulter-Nile WA
Ben Cutting QLD
Callum Ferguson SA
John Hastings VIC
Josh Hazlewood NSW
Shaun Marsh WA
Kane Richardson SA
Adam Voges WA
“In selecting this 12 man squad for the 5-match series against the England Lions, the National Selection Panel had the development of players for the 2015 World Cup very much in mind,” National Selector John Inverarity said.
“Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, Joe Burns, Callum Ferguson and Adam Voges are all talented batsmen. With the Test Squad being in India, these 12 players will have a chance to push for higher honours by doing well against a strong England Lions outfit.
“Aaron Finch impressed as captain of the Melbourne Renegades and he will captain the side. Tim Paine will be his deputy.”
The team will be coached by CA Centre of Excellence Head Coach Troy Cooley.
