Tasmania have placed Travis Birt on standby for the injured Michael Bevan for the ING Cup match against New South Wales in Newcastle on Sunday.

The addition of Birt was the only change to the squad that beat Western Australia by 62-runs last Friday. However, Bevan, who has an achilles injury, is expected to be fit to line-up against his former team-mates.

New South Wales, who lost to Queensland by two wickets in their first match, have called up the offspinner Jason Krejza in the place Don Nash, the fast bowler.

Tasmania Daniel Marsh (c), Michael DiVenuto, George Bailey, Michael Bevan, Travis Birt, Luke Butterworth, David Dawson, Michael Dighton, Xavier Doherty, Brett Geeves, Adam Griffith, Scott Kremerskothen, Damien Wright.
