Melbourne: Australia on Monday named a 13-man squad for the lone Twenty20 International against Pakistan here on Friday, drafting specialist players for the shortest format, including two new faces, in view of the T20 World Cup in the West Indies in May.
The National Selection Panel (NSP) picked a radically different outfit from the one-day squad. Twenty20 specialists Dirk Nannes, Shaun Tait and David Warner figured in the squad which has new faces in Travis Birt and Steve Smith.
Michael Clarke will captain the team with Cameron White as vice-captain.
