Hughes, Wade to join Aus A

UPDATED 18 June, 2013 7:35PM AEST | by Cricket Australia 8

Phil Hughes and Matthew Wade will join the Australia A squad in Bristol today ahead of their final tour match against Gloucestershire beginning on Friday.

The Australia A squad claimed a 93-run victory over Ireland yesterday, on top of their 360-run win in Scotland last week.

Michael Clarke, James Faulkner, Mitchell Starc, David Warner, Shane Watson and Chris Rogers will remain in London to continue their preparations before the Ashes squad officially assembles on Monday 24 June.

Glenn Maxwell (Surrey) and Adam Voges (Middlesex) will join English county cricket sides for their domestic Twenty20 county cricket championship, which starts on 26 June.

The remaining six players from the Champions Trophy squad, including Nathan Coulter-Nile, will return home to Australia over the coming days.
