Aussie debutant Carey replaces Paine for second ODI

Alex Carey will make his one-day international debut for Australia on Friday after wicketkeeper Tim Paine succumbed to illness ahead of the clash against England.

Adelaide Strikers star Carey, 26, was drafted into the squad on Thursday as cover for the unwell Paine, who had been struggling with a gastro bug.

And wicketkeeper-batsman Carey will wear the gloves for the second ODI at the Gabba in Brisbane, Cricket Australia confirmed prior to the toss.

Carey hit a match-winning century for the Strikers against Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League on Wednesday.

Jhye Richardson is also in line to make his ODI bow, with paceman Josh Hazlewood battling illness, while Ashes hero Pat Cummins is set to be rested.
