PERTH---Fast bowlers Joel Paris
and Scott Boland will make their
debuts for Australia in today s
opening one-day international
against India as the two sides pre-
pare to renew a growing rivalry.
Paris has been chosen to make
his first international appearance
on his home WACA Ground after
being fast-tracked into the Australia
squad following the retirement of
Mitchell Johnson and and injury to
Boland, from Victoria, has also
been handed a debut as Australia
replenishes its fast bowling stocks
but allrounder Shaun Marsh has
been omitted from the Australian
lineup for the first match of the
Captain Steve Smith said Paris
was selected because Australia wants
a left-armer in Perth "who can use
the breeze and move the ball."
Boland was a member of the
Australia test squad during the
recent series against the West Indies
but didn t get a chance to play.
Smith said his form for the Mel-
bourne Stars in the Big Bash League
had been compelling.
"His death bowling has been very
impressive," Smith said. "He hits a
yorker as well as anyone at the
moment. He s got a bit of pace to
him so hopefully he can hurry up
the Indian batters a bit."
Marsh hasn t been able to clinch
his place in the Australia match XI,
though his Big Bash form has also
been outstanding. He has scored
218 runs in five matches for the
Perth Scorchers at an average of
72.67 and a strike-rate of 128.24.
Australia has opted instead to let
veteran George Bailey fill the batting
vacancy left by the retirement of
"It s very difficult but Shaun s
been exceptional," Smith said. "He
hasn t whinged once, he s taken it
on the chin and he s been great
around the group."
India may also name an uncapped
paceman. India s team hasn t yet
been announced but Barinder Stan
is expected to be replace the injured
Today s match is the first meeting
between Australia and India since
the World Cup semifinal in Sydney
KABUL---Afghanistan s national crick-
et team returned home yesterday after
securing a second Twenty20 win over
Zimbabwe in three months, propelling
the squad into the top 10 in both the
one-day and T20 formats.
Hundreds of fans gathered at the air-
port in Kabul to welcome the team back
from Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
They lined the capital s main roads,
cheering, whistling and waving
Afghanistan s black, red and green flag.
"Our cricket heroes continue to sur-
prise us with the amazing performance.
We proudly thank you for all the efforts
and hard work," Afghan President Ashraf
Cricket is rapidly gaining a solid fan
base in Afghanistan, which has been at
war for almost 40 years. Most members
of the team learned to play while growing
up in refugee camps in bordering Pak-
istan. The Afghans clinched the two-
game series Sunday after Mohammad
Shahzad hit the fourth-highest score in
the format s history with 118, taking his
team to an 81-run victory.
Shahzad was also a key part of the
earlier five-match ODI series in Sharjah,
which Afghanistan won 3-2. The humil-
iation for Zimbabwe was complete, after
losing an ODI series to Afghanistan on
home turf in October. That thrilled fans
across the country when Gulbadin Naib
hit a six with only three balls remaining
to propel Afghanistan to their target of
254 and a victory that was greeted with
celebratory gunfire across Afghanistan.
