Paris, Boland included for ODIs


Uncapped duo Joel Paris and Scott Boland have been named by Australia for their one-day internationals against India in January.

Boland and Paris are part of the 13-man squad, named for the first three of five ODIs - with the series opener in Perth on January 12.

National selector Rod Marsh said the pair deserved their place after impressive performances at domestic level.

"Scott has continued to impress the selection panel, having bowled very well for Victoria this year. He certainly deserves this chance at the top level," he said.

"Joel is an exciting young left-arm bowler who swings the ball well and has bowled beautifully in the Big Bash League for the Perth Scorchers.

"He has had very good figures in short-form cricket and we really want him to make the most of this opportunity."

Kane Richardson returns to the ODI side, having last featured for Australia against South Africa in Canberra in 2014.

The in-form Chris Lynn has missed out, while all-rounder Shane Watson has also been overlooked.
