Pattinson back in team

Sydney, Feb 28: Cricket Australia"s National Selection Panel has announced a 13-man squad for the remaining ODI against Sri Lanka and the final which will be played at Gabba on 4 March.

Cricket Australia has made a few changes to the current ODI squad, as pacer James Pattinson is fit and after performing well in first class cricket, replaces Ryan Harris.

National Selector, John Inverarity, said: “James Pattinson is fit again and after impressive recent form in a Futures League match in Adelaide, comes into the squad at expense of Ryan Harris, who has been dropped. Ryan remains strongly in contention for selection for the Test matches on the VB Tour of the West Indies.

Micahel Clarke will likely be leading the side after missing out two one dayers against Sri Lanka and India respectively, who is making good progress in terms of regaining fitness.

"Michael Clarke is making a good recovery and is likely to resume on Friday. The selectors will consider adding an extra player to this squad for the Commonwealth Bank Series Finals matches, if conditions warrant it," John Inverarity said


Australia: Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Dan Christian, Xavier Doherty, Peter Forrest, Ben Hilfenhaus, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Brett Lee, Clint McKay, James Pattinson, Matthew Wade, David Warner
