Australia names 2 uncapped fast bowlers for 1st ODI vs. Indi

BY foxsports • January 10, 2016

PERTH, Australia (AP) Fast bowlers Joel Paris and Scott Boland will make their debuts for Australia in Tuesday's opening match of the one-day series against India.

Paris has been chosen to make his first international appearance on his home WACA Ground after being fast-tracked into the Australia squad following the retirement of Mitchell Johnson and and injury to Mitchell Starc.

Boland, from Victoria, has also been handed a debut as Australia replenishes its fast bowling stocks but allrounder Shaun Marsh has been omitted from the Australian lineup for the first match of the five-match series.

Captain Steve Smith said Paris was selected because Australia wants a left-armer in Perth ''who can use the breeze and move the ball.''
