Wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade will replace injured Chris Lynn in the Australia A one-day squad for the tour to Zimbabwe in June and July, Cricket Australia said.

Lynn will require finger surgery later this week and cannot make the trip, Cricket Australia physiotherapist Kevin Sims said on Monday.

“Chris will require a period of rehabilitation of two-three months which will make him unavailable for the Australia A tour to Zimbabwe,” Sims said.

Selectors said Tasmanian swing bowler Ben Hilfenhaus will only travel for the longer format games of the Zimbabwean tour.

Squad:

Tim Paine (c), Callum Ferguson, Luke Butterworth, Trent Copeland, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Nathan Lyon, Matthew Wade, Nic Maddinson, Mitch Marsh, Mitch Starc, Stephen O Keefe, David Warner.
