AUS Vs NZ: Australia has announced their team for the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. The selectors have not made any changes in the team and have chosen the same team which is currently playing against South Africa. Jhye Richardson, who is suffering from a shoulder injury, however, has not found a place in the 14-man squad selected for New Zealand.
Richardson was included in the T20 squad. He will remain with the ODI team in South Africa. Richardson has not stepped into international cricket for the past 11 months. He suffered a shoulder injury in the series played against Pakistan in March last year.
Trevor Hons, the team’s chief selector, said, “Jhye is doing well, as we saw in the Big Bash. He was back in the T20 series played against South Africa and was working hard to get a place in the team.”
He said, “We are lucky that we have a pool of talented fast bowlers. Jhye has achieved this place after hard work. Keeping him in South Africa will give us an option.” The three-match ODI series between Australia and South Africa starts on 29 February. After this, Australia has to play an ODI series against New Zealand from 13 March.
Australian team: Aaron Finch (skipper), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey(vice-captain), Pat Cummins(vice-captain), Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Marsh, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, D’Arcy Short, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa
