Hilton Cartwright called up for Boxing Day Test

Hilton Cartwright, the Zimbabwe-born 24-year-old who plays for Western Australia, was added as an all-round option to the 12-member group that prevailed by 39 runs in the First Test at Gabba.

Cartwright was also included in the Chappell-Hadlee ODI squad to face New Zealand but he did not play a single game.

Trevor Hohns, the interim chairman of selectors said,



We wanted to give ourselves the option of including an allrounder in Melbourne to ease that workload somewhat. To do that, we wanted a batting allrounder, someone to bowl seam-up and capable of batting in the top six as well, and after considering several names we came to the conclusion that Hilton fits that bill.



Australia squad:

Matt Renshaw, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith (capt), Peter Handscomb, Nic Maddinson, Hilton Cartwright, Matthew Wade (wk), Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Jackson Bird, Chadd Sayers.
