Cartwright surprise pick in Australia's ODI squad

Australia, on Wednesday, named Zimbabwe-born Hilton Cartwright for the first time in a one-day squad for the three-match series against New Zealand next month.

The all-rounder was the only uncapped member of a 14-man squad for the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy series. Cartwright's inclusion follows the selection of English-born opener Matt Renshaw for third Test against South Africa in Adelaide.

Australia's squad also includes injury-plagued fast bowler Pat Cummins, who has not played for country since September last year, and recalled Glenn Maxwell. Interim chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns said the panel had been keeping an eye on 24-year-old Cartwright's progress at state level. "Hilton bowls useful aggressive medium-pace and is a very good striker of the ball," Hohns said. Cartwright has played 14 Sheffield Shield and 27 domestic one-day games for WA.
