Beau Casson, the Retravision Warriors most successful bowler of the summer, will return to action for the WA Second XI in their Cricket Australia Cup match against South Australia.
Casson has missed the Warriors last two Pura Cup matches with strained ligaments and split webbing in his left hand.
Casson injured the hand while fielding in WA's win over NSW in their ING Cup match at the WACA Ground on January 21.
Casson strained ligaments behind the large knuckle on his left ring finger, the finger that imparts the prodigious spin on the ball for which he is renown.
The 21-year-old has taken 17 wickets in four matches for the Warriors this season and was man-of-the-match against the Queensland Bulls in his last first-class game when took eight wickets at the WACA Ground.
Scott Meuleman captains the talented team that includes nine players with first-class experience. Only left-arm paceman Justin Coetzee (Scarborough), batsman Steve Glew (Subiaco-Floreat) and right-arm quick Andrew James (University) are yet to earn a Baggy Yellow cap.
The four-day encounter begins on February 9 at Adelaide Oval.

Turning your back on a system that the whole cricketing world wants a discussion on, refusing to discuss it because it is not 100%, is not good enough
