Cricket Australia have decided to fly in all-rounder Andrew McDonald and fast bowler Burt Cockley to join the team in India. Australia have lost Moises Henriques as well due to an injury and the Portugal-born cricketer is on his way back home just like Peter Siddle. Henriques has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Ironically Henriques was originally not a part of the squad but was asked to fly in as cover for James Hopes after the first ODI.
There are three more ODIs to play for the Aussies in the India Series and the pair of McDonald and rookie fast bowler Cockley are expected to be available for the last two ODIs only. In that case, Australia could give ODI Debut to Victoria all-rounder Clint McKay in today’s fifth ODI at Hyderabad.
