Ferguson replaces Marsh in Australia's ODI squad

Ferguson replaces Marsh in Australia's ODI squad

Callum Ferguson has been drafted in to replace injured batsman Shaun Marsh in the Australian squad for the remainder of its three-match limited-overs international series against Sri Lanka.
Marsh injured his back in Wednesday's stunning one-wicket loss to Sri Lanka in the series opener at Melbourne. Ferguson has been given the chance to revive his international career.
He showed form with a rapid century for South Australia against Western Australia in a Sheffield Shield match earlier this week.
Chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch said while he felt for Marsh, Ferguson now had the chance to rejoin the Australian team and "press his claims" to future selection.
