Kurtis Patterson added to Aussie Test squad for SL series

Kurtis Patterson added to Aussie Test squad for SL series

"The Board of Cricket Australia has endorsed the National Selection Panel's recommendation for Travis Head and Patrick Cummins to be appointed co-vice captains for the two Test matches against Sri Lanka", Cricket.com.au quoted Hohns, as saying.

The 25-year-old got a late maiden call-up following his back-to-back unbeaten centuries (157* and 102*) in the three-day warm-up fixture at Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

The first Test against Sri Lanka kicks off at the Gabba on Thursday afternoon.

Debutant Kurtis Patterson - who made two hundreds for a Cricket Australia XI against Sri Lanka last week - looked assured at the crease in reaching 30 until he became Lakmal's fifth victim.

Head moved to 50 courtesy of a mistake in the field and the confident Labuschagne raised his bat for the first time at Test level, both players prospering during their century partnership.

Suranga Lakmal and 21-year-old Lahiru Kumara will lead the charge for the quicks, with Dilruwan Perera now their most risky spinner.

Cricket Australia (CA) said that the duo have been elevated to leadership roles to assist skipper Tim Paine in place of his regular deputies, with Josh Hazlewood ruled out through a back injury and Mitchell Marsh not selected.

This will be the second day-night Test staged in Brisbane after the 2016 clash against Pakistan which produced a thrilling conclusion as Australia secured a 39-run victory on the final day when Pakistan threatened to chase down a world record 490.

Sri Lanka are reeling from a resounding defeat in New Zealand earlier this summer, but have received a boost with Kusal Mendis expected to play in Brisbane despite suffering a thumb injury in last week's tour match.

"He's someone who has been spoken about for a couple of years as quite clearly the best young player that we've got in Australia". "A wounded Australia is a bit of a mystery in any sport really".

"We felt like punching bags through a lot of criticism in the media".

"Pat Cummins I think is a terrific young bloke and it's always good to get some input from the bowlers". We keep rolling our sleeves up.

"I think India speaks loud", Sri Lanka bowling coach Rumesh Ratnayake told reporters Tuesday. He came up with invaluable contributions while batting in the lower order.

"I believe we can take that from the Indians, and we can go forward".

Hohns further stressed that the selectors have been asking the players all across the country to score centuries if they want to push their cases for selection, adding that as Kurtis managed to do the same, he deserves to be added in the squad.
