Victoria have recalled Peter Siddle to their one-day squad to take on Tasmania at the MCG on Friday. The Bushrangers are fresh from winning their third consecutive Twenty20 title and will use the same 12-man squad in the FR Cup game with the exception of Siddle, who replaces Clint McKay.

Despite their success in the shortest form of the game, Victoria are second-last on the FR Cup table. However, they have played two fewer matches than any other side and can gain on the first-placed Tigers with a win in Melbourne.

Tasmania have made one change to the squad that last turned out for the state in an FR Cup match, before Christmas, including Jason Krejza at the expense of Luke Butterworth. The Tigers appeared to carry their strong 50-over form into the KFC Twenty20 but a couple of stumbles late in the tournament denied them a spot in the final.

Victoria squad Michael Klinger, Aiden Blizzard, Brad Hodge, David Hussey, Cameron White (capt), Rob Quiney, Andrew McDonald, Adam Crosthwaite (wk), John Hastings, Shane Harwood, Peter Siddle, Bryce McGain, Dirk Nannes.
