Heat leg spinner Mitchell Swepson has been added to the Australian squad for the third match of the Domain Test Series against New Zealand in Sydney.

Swepson will join the squad for preparation during the Domain Boxing Day Test at the MCG and move onto Sydney with the squad.

National Selector Trevor Hohns said the 26-year-old Queenslander was ready for selection given his form this summer with 12 wickets from six Marsh Sheffield Shield games at 26.58.

“Having Mitch in Sydney gives us the option to play two specialist spinners if the conditions demand,” Hohns said. “We will make those assessments when we get to Sydney.”

Swepson was a member of Australia’s Test squad for tours of India and Bangladesh in 2017. He took two wickets on his international debut in a T20I match against England at Edgbaston in 2018.

Hohns added paceman Peter Siddle would be released back to the Adelaide Strikers in the BBL after Australia chose James Pattinson to replace the injured Josh Hazlewood in Melbourne.

“Having Sids (Siddle) as the 13th man and his experience at the MCG has been invaluable. His insights have greatly assisted the fast bowlers for this Test and it was great having him around the group.

“James has been with the squad through the summer, has performed well Marsh Sheffield Shield matches and is thoroughly deserving of his recall to the team.”
