The ODI series will be followed by a one-off Twenty20 International on November 17 at the Cannara Oval, Queensland. <p></p> <p></p>Pacer <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mitchell-starc/">Mitchell Starc</a>, who picked up a hamstring injury during the second Test against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/pat-cummins/">Pat Cummins</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/josh-hazlewood/">Josh Hazlewood</a> will be named in the squad. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/chris-lynn/">Chris Lynn</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/glenn-maxwell/">Glenn Maxwell</a> and D'Arcy Short are among the likely inclusions in the squad. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shaun-marsh/">Shaun Marsh</a>, who notched just 14 runs in the two Tests in the UAE, is expected to retain his place due to the dual centuries he scored in England. <p></p> <p></p>According to the report, the selectors were clean that Paine s ODI appointment was temporary and his departure would see Alex Carey donning the keeper s gloves ahead of the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/icc-world-cup">ICC World Cup</a> next year. However, there remains an uncertainty over <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mitchell-marsh/">Mitchell Marsh</a>, who could be drafted for the Sheffield Shield after a patchy display with the bat in Tests. <p></p> <p></p>"If Finchy was given the opportunity, no doubt he would be really good at the job," Carey was quoted as saying. <p></p> <p></p>"His performances are so vital for success in Australian cricket in one-dayers and T20s. In an ideal world, the two teams aren't too different and he can really put his stamp on the white-ball teams. If he does captain the one-day team, and he obviously is the captain of the T20 team, it's quite a similar message all the way across the board."
