Australia have brought Ben Cutting back into their one-day squad as fast bowling cover for Friday’s match against Sri Lanka.
Cutting, 25, made his ODI debut in Sunday’s heavy defeat in Adelaide but was dropped as pacemen Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Starc returned from minor injuries.
“Ben is here in Brisbane as a precaution due to Johnson and Starc coming back from injury,” said national selector John Inverarity.
“If both pace bowlers prove their fitness to play as expected, Ben will re-join the Brisbane Heat on Friday afternoon for the Big Bash League Final.”
Sri Lanka and Australia are all square 1-1 in the five-match series.
