Western Australia have included their fast-bowling recruit Trent Kelly in their opening Pura Cup squad of the season. Kelly is part of a 12-man line-up for the match against New South Wales at the WACA starting on Sunday.

Adam Voges will captain the side as Marcus North spends at least the first fortnight of the summer on the sidelines with a degenerative knee problem. The inclusions of Kelly and David Bandy are the only two changes from the Warriors' first FR Cup squad, with Shawn Gillies and Sean Ervine left out of the longer game.

Kelly, 23, transferred from South Australia at the end of last season after struggling to break into the Redbacks' first team. He played two Pura Cup matches for South Australia and is unlikely to add to his tally against New South Wales, with Brett Dorey, Ben Edmondson and Steve Magoffin ahead of him in the pace brigade.

Squad Chris Rogers, Justin Langer, Shaun Marsh, Adam Voges (capt), Luke Pomersbach, David Bandy, Luke Ronchi (wk), Aaron Heal, Brett Dorey, Steve Magoffin, Ben Edmondson, Trent Kelly.
