Congratulations to Ashton Agar who has been selected in Australia’s One Day International side, set to take on England and Ireland in a post-Ashes limited overs series starting August 27.
The selection comes off the back of Ashton’s stunning five wicket haul for Australia A against India A in the Tri-Series at Chennai earlier this month.
It also marks a return to the Australian squad since bursting into the spotlight at 19 years of age when he scored 98 runs on debut during the 2013 Ashes.
What terrific news today with Ash Agar's inclusion in the @CricketAus ODI squad v Eng.Tick for self-belief, persistence, hard work & JL!
