Damien Martyn has got back his place in the Australian Squad after missing out more than four weeks due to a finger injury. The 34-year-old with more than impressive stats in both Tests and ODIs was dropped from the Australian Test Squad after the Ashes Setback. The right hander played in yesterday’s Twenty 20 International against South Africa to bludgeon them all over the GABBA scoring a 56-ball 96 which contained 9 fours and 5 sixes. He opened the batting to help Australia make 209 in the 20 Overs and was later awarded as the Man of the Match after the homeside won the match convincingly by 95 runs. Along with Martyn, James Hopes, the Queensland All-rounder also returns to the One Day Squad after recovering from his shoulder injury. 28-year-old Western Australian fast bowler Brett Dorey got included in the squad as well.
Aus Squad : Ricky Ponting (Captain), Adam Gilchrist (Wicket Keeper), Michael Clarke, Damien Martyn, Mike Hussey, James Hopes, Simon Katich, Brad Hogg, Andrew Symonds, Brett Lee, Stuart Clarke, Nathan Bracken, Brett Dorey
