Tait set for one-day debut

Australia has called up fast bowler Shaun Tait into its one-day side for the next two matches of the Commonwealth Bank series.

Tait has been added to the squad that will take on England in Sydney and New Zealand in Melbourne, said the Australian chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch.

“We are taking the opportunity to add Shaun Tait with a view to looking at him ahead of World Cup squad selection,” he said.

“These next two games form the final opportunity to look at him ahead of World Cup squad selection.

“Ben Hilfenhaus performed well earlier in the series and at that point Shaun was injured.

“Shaun has made an impressive return from injury and we want to take a further look at him in the international environment.”

The 23 year old South Australian played two Test matches for Australia in the 2005.
