Muirhead and Lynn in Australia's T20 squad

  shares 49

Muirhead surprised, Doolan and Bird pleased

Legspinner James Muirhead and batsman Chris Lynn will be in line for international debuts after being named in Australia's Twenty20 squad to take on England. Aaron Finch has been named vice-captain to George Bailey for the three-match T20 series that follows the ODIs, with Cameron White and Mitchell Starc both back in the reckoning along with Josh Hazlewood, Ben Cutting and Moises Henriques.

The most surprising selection was that of Muirhead, 20, who has played only four Twenty20 matches in his career, including only two for the Melbourne Stars this summer for a return of one wicket. However, Muirhead did bowl well in the Prime Minister's XI match against England in Canberra, where he took 3 for 52, and he also played against England in two other tour games earlier in the summer.

"We'll select the 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup in the middle of February and we're looking at spin-bowling options," John Inverarity, the national selector, said. "There are a number of spin-bowling options. Xavier Doherty of course has strong claims, Brad Hogg still has strong claims and we're interested in a legspinner also.

"So we're having a look at James Muirhead this time. He's a young man and he's impressed this season when he's played against England. He's a young man who really puts a lot on the ball and his legbreak turns. He's in the squad for the experience and if he plays I'm sure that he'll be striving to make the most of the opportunity."

The inclusion of Lynn was less of a surprise as he has been one of state cricket's most promising young batsmen for several seasons, and this summer has 197 BBL runs at 32.83. A clean striker of the ball for the Brisbane Heat and Queensland, Lynn also impressed the selectors with his 104 and 61 not out when he was drafted into the Western Australia Chairman's XI that took on England before the first Ashes Test.

"[He] had a difficult season last season and wasn't included in Queensland's first Sheffield Shield match," Inverarity said of Lynn. "He came here to play against England for the Western Australia XI and made a century, and hasn't looked back. He's a fine striker of the ball."

James Faulkner is the only member of Australia's Test squad to tour South Africa who will also be part of the T20s against England, with other senior T20 players such as David Warner and Shane Watson to focus on their Test preparations. Starc will be back for his first internationals since the Ashes tour of England, having missed the home Ashes with a back injury.

"Mitchell Starc has a fine record in international T20 cricket and is an important player in our ICC World Twenty20 campaign," Inverarity said. "It is anticipated that he will be ready to perform by the end of this month."

Twenty20 squad George Bailey (capt), Aaron Finch (vice-capt), Daniel Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ben Cutting, James Faulkner, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, James Muirhead, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade (wk), Cameron White.

    Great to see White back only problem I have is only 6 batsman for a T20 squad it's way to heavy on bowling and a lot to ask from the batsman imo

    I am liking these selections muchly.If only Invers had gone with youth for the test squad selection also - then we would be well and truly on the main road.

    Selection of Marsh is taking us on a short detour before we realize we went the wrong way

    Mike Hussey must have said no.. Chris Lynn is a great selection and is a real impact batsmen- he will never play test cricket but what a dynamic hitter and great fielder. 20 year old leg spinner.... Please, if he is quality and potential, why the hell would you test him in T20? Nurture him and take him on OS tours, not send him to the slaughter in this form of the game. Cutting has huge potential but needs to get smarter with his bowling when he gets some stick, again a dynamic hitter. Haddin deserves a rest and don't want to see his technique ruined by too much T20, but agree that Paine is miles ahead of Wade currently. A pretty good squad, but Hoggy over the young dude just makes total sense

    Before seeing Muirhead I would have suggested Zampa, but Muirhead has really impressed me in the games I have seen him play. Most of these guys have performed really well in the BBL although Wade was very lucky to get in. I would say he has been the worst keeper on show out of the 8, way behind Paine, Whiteman, Carters & Hanscomb. Really am impressed with Whiteman, he is worth following.

    How did Michael Klinger not make this team? One of the best performed openers of the tournament. Highest average of the top 5 run scorers for the tournament. Even batted though an entire 20 overs in a match winning performance for the Strikers..

    These selectors are smoking CRACK. Henriques out for Klinger, Muirhead out for Hogg. Cheers.

    My 15 person squad for the World T20 in Bangladesh would be

    1) Warner 2) Watson 3) White 4) Smith (c) 5) Maxwell 6) Paine (w/k) 7) Faulkner 8) Starc 9) Coulter-Nile 10) Hogg 11) Doherty

    Reserves: * Finch *Dunk *Gannon *Bird

    That playing XI gives you a left and a right arm fast bowler, a left and a right arm medium fast bowler, a left and a right arm finger spinner and a left and a right arm wrist spinner. As well as the 3 best ground fieldsmen in Australia along with 2 of the best catchers. Smith gets the captaincy to groom him for the future while he's got the experienced heads of Watson, Warner, White, Hogg and Paine.

    3 of the top 10 run scorers and 3 of the top 10 wicket takers. There are a good mix of spinners and seamers.

  • POSTED BY on | January 20, 2014, 11:25 GMT

    saosin are you kidding mate. 2 games for Australia and you put a redline through him, lucky you weren't a selector when Shane Warne played his first 2 tests otherwise most of us would never have heard of him.

    I like the look of Muirhead but lets not get too ahead of ourselves, he has good control, flight and turn and he could b anything but don't want to put too much pressure on the guy. Brad Hogg is my spinner no one reads his wrong un. I hope im not wrong but I wouldn't be surprised to still see maybe hodge, m hussey and hogg in the world cup squad, I think the selectors just want to see a few younger players. They know what there getting with hodge, hussey and Hogg so why not give a few others a go at the next level and see how they handle it.

  • POSTED BY Jagger on | January 20, 2014, 10:35 GMT

    That is a 14 man squad. There is a spot missing. It had better be Brad Hodge.

  • POSTED BY geoffrey22 on | January 20, 2014, 10:18 GMT

    WHY is Matthew Wade there he averages 20 in T20 and in Tasmania there are 2 keepers in the team who are both performing better then Wade,in Tim Paine and Ben Dunk, but don't embarrass the selectors buy picking players that haven't been picked recently you must stick with Wade even though he has had his shot and it wasn't good enough typical of the poor current Australian selectors

  • POSTED BY siddhartha87 on | January 20, 2014, 9:57 GMT

    Good to see Lynn and White in the squad.Both are in red hot form.Hopefully Aussie unleash Pat Cummins in WT20 T20 sqaud for wt20 should be- 1.Warner 2.Finch 3.Watson 4.Maxwell 5.Bailey 6.White 7.Haddin 8. Faulkner 9. Johnson 10.Starc 11. Cummins

    reserves- Lynn,Coulter-Nile,Marsh ,Henriques

    Yes there is no specialist spinner in this squad.But the squad has enough batsmen who can chase or score any sort of total.

    Posted by fernandotorres - @Matt.au You are mistaken mate. He has never said that! Few weeks back in the Big Bash League he was miked up and fielding for the Melbourne Stars. Darren Lehmann was one of the guest commentators. And they had a discussion on air and Hodge told that he was available for selection for the T20 side!

    I'm happy to put my hand up and say I was wrong. Thanks for the heads up.

    Despite Hodges' age, he is probably the best short form batter in Australia. If he is available to be picked they should have picked him on form - same as Hughes should have been - on form.

  • POSTED BY UnderTheSameSky on | January 20, 2014, 9:44 GMT

    It's testament to the fact that we don't treat twenty 20's all that seriously in Australia (and for the right reasons) that we use the format for no other reason than a launching pad for future international ODI & test hopefuls - it reflects in our world ranking and it's actually disappointing that other countries (SL & WI) treat international twenty 20 success like a crown being proud of

    Australia missed a trick here by not selecting Hodge. Hodge has captained Barisal Burners, one of the sides in Bangladesh Premier League; the only foreign captain in the league. He is top scorer in the history of the league with 756 runs and his experience of playing all over Bangladesh would have helped the team a lot! Although Lynn etc have had a decent Big Bash, a big question remains whether they can cut it in Bangladesh! Hodge would have been a much safer bet in Bangladesh. They should have played him in this series V England and then the World T20 in Bangladesh!!

    Posted by PrasPunter - Success with T20 is not something we should sweat about. Tests are the ultimate.

    Agree whole heartedly.

    By sparing the usual suspects it means a way of exposing more youngsters to the Australian international environment. They meet coaches and are made aware of what is expected of them.

    More importantly, coaches meet them. They can get a feel of how a player may handle int cricket - whether he has the get up and go and the mental prowess to succeed at the highest level.

    Posted by Tony Sadgrove - where is hodge - this is ridiculous

    I think I read somewhere that he didn't want to be considered for selection at international level.

    I know he played in the PM's 11 but so too did Brett Lee.

    They were helping a very young side out as a once off.

  • POSTED BY Saosin on | January 20, 2014, 6:11 GMT

    @jonesy2 - I must respectfully disagree with your theory on Ben Laughlin.

    The last time he played (2 games against Sri Lanka about this time last year, selected on the back of a strong BBL effort) he lost us both games.

    In the first of the two games he went for 46 off 23 balls (12 an over) in a match where the overall run-rate was 7.11.

    In the 2nd game he went for 40 off 4 overs (10 an over) in a game where the overall run-rate was 8. We lost that game by 3 runs (D/L method), so him going for 2 an over more than the average for 4 overs was telling and impactful.

    As much as I respect him as a domestic t20 player (a very good one at that - remove his horrid international stats and he's taken 53 wickets in 40 games at 20.87 runs per wicket which is fantastic) I think he has a permanent red line through his name, and rightfully so in my opinion.

    Muirhead is a wonderful selection - that kid is a genuine wicket-taker. It may not work out, but the selectors are making logical decisions.

    Dunno - I think the squad is short on specialist batsmen. I suppose the plethora of allrounders make up for that & whatever side selected will be able to bat deep. I know that people would be tired of the "Where is SO'K?" bleating - but have a look at his Int20/20 stats & he is better than Doherty on bowling alone, on top of that can bat & field way better than Doherty. So why don't they look at a good performer who has done the job previously instead of a hail mary in Muirhead? == == == Also, I know Bailey is a good bloke & all, but I think when we are talking 20/20 - Cameron White is a far better choice as batsmen & captain. Bailey is really a 50 over specialist. == == == Funny how S Smith can't seem to get a look in for a Short Form team! I have no problems with this as I think staying away from short forms will do him good.

    Good to see Australia resting players like Smith, Warner Watson etc from this minor Int Cricket for the most important of all, test cricket.

    Muirhead has been bowling beautifully in the BBL and he's a great pick. Good luck to him. Being a leggie in T20 has got to be one of the hardest jobs in cricket. Leggies are normally wicket takers but not that economical so it's a brave and aggressive selection.

    Lynn finally gets a chance. Looking forward to seeing how he goes.

    Calm down fellas, the only contentious decision is leaving out Doherty out of this side. Otherwise, Steve Smith, David Warner, Nathan Lyon, Jackson Bird and Shane Watson ALL haven't been picked because they will be flying to South Africa at a similar time to prepare for the test series.

    Faulkner has stayed so he probably won't be starting in SA.

    If 20 20 was taken seriously by selectors and the best players were picked Australia would be awesome. I believe were ranked 6 in 20 20? I'm surprised Ben Dunk wasn't included in the squad, even though he isn't keeping for Hobart Hurricanes, I'd include him as the Australian 20 20 keeper for his hitting ability. Matthew Wade is ok but scores slower. I have no idea why Bird doesn't get a game, he hasn't played any tests or ODIs so doesn't need a rest, bowls amazing line and length, and had a great BBL

    Who would beat this team? Finch, Warner, Watson, Bailey, White, Maxwell, Faulkner, Dunk, Coulter Nile, Hogg/Doherty, Bird

    Dunk coming in at 8, Coulter Nile can still hit a big ball at 9! Selectors use 20 20 as an opportunity to rest, or test out new players. Sometimes it seems it's also an opportunity just to give everyone a game. The tests showed playing with the strongest side 5 tests in a row was successful and didn't lead to any serious injury.
