Trevor Bayliss, the New South Wales coach, wants Brett Lee to return from India if he is not picked for the final Test on Wednesday.
Lee has not played in a Test since January and Bayliss said it would be better for him to fly home and play for the Blues. "I would have thought there are two or three other young guys over there who could do a decent job running around," Bayliss told the Daily Telegraph.
New South Wales start their Pura Cup match against Western Australia at the SCG tomorrow and will play New Zealand in a first-class game on November 11.
Western Australia will not call for another bowler despite Michael Clark having scans today to determine whether a screw has loosened in his back. Clark, who missed last seasosn with stress fractures of the spine and had a pin inserted into the L4 vertebrae, complained of soreness after fielding in the ING Cup match against New South Wales yesterday.
Adam Voges, who scored the fastest century in the competition yesterday with his 62-ball hundred, is likely to be dropped as Scott Meuleman returns from a dislocated shoulder.
