Sutherland, the versatile allrounder, has earned his place in the squad, showcasing his cricketing skills . This alteration comes on the heels of Glenn Maxwell and Jhye Richardson’s replacements, as South Australia’s Jake Fraser-McGurk and Queensland’s Xavier Bartlett make their maiden international call-ups.

The initial plan was for right-arm paceman Nathan Ellis to bolster the Australian pace attack in the absence of frontline bowlers Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, and Mitchell Starc, who are being rested after the demanding five-Test summer. However, Ellis has been compelled to withdraw due to injury, prompting the inclusion of Victoria’s captain, Will Sutherland.

Sutherland, who had a breakout 2022-23 Marsh Sheffield Shield season, where he took 41 wickets and notched a maiden first-class hundred, has experienced a comparatively quieter season with the red ball this summer. Despite a less stellar performance for the Renegades in the Big Bash, his standout contributions in the Marsh One-Day Cup have caught the selectors’ attention.

Leading the wicket-taking charts with 11 scalps at an average of 18.18 from five matches and maintaining an impressive economy rate of 4.93 runs per over, Sutherland’s recent form in one-day cricket has been commendable.
