Lee Carseldine, the Queensland allrounder, is set to make his return from injury for the Queensland Academy of Sport side to take on India at the Allan Border Field this weekend.
Carseldine has missed the past two weeks with a back injury, but will play as a batsman only against the Indians, who play their final match before the first Test next week. Carseldine has had an impressive run against international touring teams, scoring a double century against New Zealand two years ago, and 92 against Bangladesh earlier this year.
He will be joined in the Academy team by his Queensland team-mates, Daniel Payne, Chris Simpson, Steve Farrell, Shane Jurgensen, Scott Brant and Joe Dawes. Aaron Nye, the Wests batsman who led the second XI to victory over Western Australia last week at Albion, will captain the side. The three-day game, which starts on Saturday, will not be a first-class match. Admission is free for the game, with play starting at 10.00am.
Queensland Academy of Sport XI 1 Daniel Payne, 2 Chris Simpson, 3 Lee Carseldine, 4 Aaron Nye (capt), 5 Craig Philipson, 6 Steven Farrell, 7 Chris Hartley, 8 Ryan Leloux, 9 Shane Jurgensen, 10 Scott Brant, 11 Joe Dawes, Steven Magoffin (12th man).
