: Australia brought batsman Aaron Finch back into the ODIsquad unveiled on Friday for the first matches against the West Indies next month.

David Hussey made way for Finch, paying the price for what the selectors said were “concerns” with the batting performance in the series against Sri Lanka.

Australia levelled the series 2-2 in Hobart on Wednesday but struggled against swing and looked to have been saved by the rain in Sydney last Sunday.

“A top four of (David) Warner, Finch, (Phillip) Hughes and (Michael) Clarke has good balance and the team looks forward to getting better starts than has been the case recently,” said national selector John Inverarity.
