AUS vs SL: McDermott named in T20I squad, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh rested;

AUS vs SL: After a barnstorming domestic T20 campaign, Ben McDermott enters Australia’s T20I squad, as they prepare for a home World Cup defence.

Hosting Sri Lanka for five T20Is from February 11 in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, McDermott could well play a key role in the five matches, with fellow opener David Warner sitting out the series to prepare for Australia’s upcoming tour of Pakistan.

McDermott leads the Big Bash League run list with 577 runs. At a strike rate of 153.86, including five scores of over fifty.

McDermott’s two centuries in the tournament also came in back-to-back innings. The first player to achieve the feat in the tournament’s eleven-season history.

ICC Men’s T20 World Cup hero Mitchell Marsh will also sit out the home series. While Andrew McDonald will act as interim head coach. With Justin Langer taking planned leave ahead of the Pakistan tour.
