Victoria have been bolstered by the return of Cameron White and Mick Lewis from Australian one-day duty for Sunday's ING Cup match against Tasmania at Launceston. White will be back as captain and he said a win was crucial at the half-way mark of the competition.

"Getting the points in Launceston will have us sitting in second position on the table and with plenty of momentum going in to the second half of the season," he said. Tim Welsford was cut from the squad that comfortably beat Queensland last weekend.

Victoria squad Jon Moss, Michael Klinger, Lloyd Mash, David Hussey, Liam Buchanan, Graeme Rummans, Grant Lindsay, Cameron White (capt), Adam Crosthwaite (wk), Shane Harwood, Peter Siddle, Gerard Denton, Mick Lewis.

Tasmania Michael Di Venuto (capt), Tim Paine, Travis Birt, George Bailey, Michael Dighton, Adam Polkinghorne, Dane Anderson, Adam Griffith, Xavier Doherty, Shannon Tubb, Ben Hilfenhaus, Darren McNees.
