A suspension to Adam Voges has given Liam Davis the chance to become Western Australia's sixth debutant of the summer in the one-day game against South Australia at the WACA on Wednesday. Voges missed a compulsory squad session last week and was banned for one match.

Davis, a hard-hitting batsman from Scarborough, is in his second year with the state squad and is one of two changes to the side that beat Queensland. Marcus North also comes in for Shawn Gillies after recovering from a broken finger.

Grant Roden, the Western Suburbs fast bowler, will replace Grant Lambert in the New South Wales squad to play Tasmania in the ING Cup match at Hobart on Wednesday. Roden is the leading wicket-taker in the Cricket Australia Cup with 25 at 13.88 this season, and he joins an attack including Matthew Nicholson, Doug Bollinger and Stuart MacGill. New South Wales enter the match on top of the table with 25 points and are looking to extend their advantage against the defending champions.

Dane Anderson, the Tasmania opening batsman, injured his right shoulder during fielding training on Monday and has been ruled out. Rhett Lockyear has been recalled from the Cricket Australia Cup team playing in Perth and is expected to make his one-day debut.

New South Wales squad Phil Jaques, Craig Simmons, Dominic Thornely, Aaron O'Brien, Brad Haddin (capt, wk), Matthew Phelps, Corey Richards, Grant Roden, Aaron Bird, Doug Bollinger, Stuart MacGill, Matthew Nicholson.
