Graham Manou will have no chance to rest after flying home from India when he joins his South Australia team-mates for Saturday's FR Cup match against Queensland in Alice Springs. Manou played his first four ODIs as a replacement for Tim Paine, taking five catches, but will quickly slip back into his domestic leadership duties for the game against the competition leaders.

Cullen Bailey and Kane Richardson also come in for South Australia, who are taking the match out of their region to promote the game, and Richardson could play a major fixture in his home state of the Northern Territory for the first time. The Redbacks, who took first-innings points in the Sheffield Shield fixture between the sides, named a 13-man squad for the trip, with Tim Ludeman, the stand-in gloveman, and James Smith missing out.

Mark Cosgrove remains on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury while Chris Duval is still suffering a stomach problem. Queensland will wait until Friday to finalise their team following an injury to Chris Swan, who has been struggling with a groin complaint, during the Shield game.

South Australia squad Daniel Harris, Michael Klinger, Tom Cooper, Graham Manou (capt, wk), Cameron Borgas, Aaron O'Brien, Dan Christian, Cullen Bailey, Matthew Weeks, Kane Richardson, Jake Haberfield, Peter George, Shaun Tait.
