Australia take on Sri Lanka in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Brisbane on Friday as the hosts won the toss and elected to bat first.
Skipper Michael Clarke returned to the one-day squad to lead Australia after a thrashing by Sri Lanka in the second ODI and an ear-bashing over selection policy from former stars, AFP reported.
Quick bowlers Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Starc were also brought back in after being withdrawn as a precaution to protect niggling minor injuries.
Opener David Warner and keeper Matthew Wade completed the list of big guns coming back after a rest for the third and fourth one-dayers in Brisbane on Friday and Sydney on Sunday.
Sri Lanka: Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Mahela Jayawardene (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kushal Janith Perera (wk), Angelo Mathews, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Shaminda Eranga, Lasith Malinga.
Australia: David Warner, Phillip Hughes, Michael Clarke(c), David Hussey, George Bailey, Matthew Wade (wk), Moises Henriques, Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty.
