David Warner will play his first one-day game for NSW in almost six years when a star-studded Blues side takes on Tasmania in Sydney, but Matthew Wade is set to miss due to injury.
Warner is one of six members of Australia's Ashes squad named by the Blues for the Marsh Cup game at North Sydney Oval, alongside Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and Steve Smith.
The match will be the first for Cummins and Hazlewood since the fifth Ashes Test last month after they were rested for the start of the domestic season.
Incumbent Test batter Wade will not feature however after suffering a groin strain in the recent Marsh Sheffield Shield game against NSW, while Cricket Tasmania has indicated Test skipper Tim Paine wasn't available for selection as he focuses on red-ball cricket.
Jordan Silk will captain the Tigers in Wade's stead.
Wade's injury is understood to be minor and he's expected to be fit for Tasmania's next Shield match beginning October 31.
Warner hasn't donned the NSW one-day strip since the final of the 2013 competition, which was then known as the Ryobi Cup.
Having been dropped for disciplinary reasons on the 2013 Ashes tour, the left-hander dominated that tournament with three centuries, including a score of 197 against Victoria at the same venue where tomorrow’s match will be played.
Nine members of the 12-man Blues squad to face the Tigers have played international cricket, with the all-Australian bowling attack of Starc, Cummins, Hazlewood and Lyon set to give Tasmania's batsmen a torrid time.
Following the match, Warner, Smith, Starc and Cummins will all join Australia's T20 squad for their series against Sri Lanka, which starts on Sunday.
Warner has made a mixed start to the domestic season after his Ashes struggles, posting a century in the opening round of the Marsh Sheffield Shield but also falling for a handful of low scores.
Smith posted a hundred in the Shield game against Tasmania, which finished yesterday, while Starc bagged figures of 10-60 in a player-of-the-match performance at Drummoyne Oval.
NSW and Tasmania have just two wins from eight matches between them so far in the Marsh Cup.
The NSW v Tasmania Marsh Cup clash will be broadcast live on Fox Cricket while a live stream via Kayo can be found on cricket.com.au and the CA Live app. Entry to North Sydney Oval is free.
NSW squad: Peter Nevill (c & wk), Sean Abbott, Patrick Cummins, Jack Edwards, Matthew Gilkes, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Daniel Hughes, Nathan Lyon, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, David Warner.
Tasmania squad: Jordan Silk (c), George Bailey, Nathan Ellis, James Faulkner, Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Simon Milenko, Tom Rogers, Clive Rose, Gurinder Sandhu, Beau Webster, Mac Wright
