SYDNEY - Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin and fast bowler Peter Siddle have been recalled to the Australian squad for Sunday’s Twenty20 match against Sri Lanka.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, both have been named in the 12-man Australian squad.

Haddin had been out of the national squad with an elbow complaint, and Tasmanian wicketkeeper Tim Paine was deputizing for him.

Siddle was out of the squad with a back stress injury and had undergone a long period of rehabilitation before his recall.

The squad contains four Victorian fast bowlers - Siddle, Clint McKay, Dirk Nannes and John Hastings.

New South Wales all rounder Stephen O’Keefe joins Steve Smith as the two spin options, while Shane Watson returns to the team having been rested from the limited overs portion of the tour of India.

Mike Hussey and Mitchell Johnson have been kept out of the side in order to play for Western Australia in a Sheffield Shield match against South Australia from Friday as part of their preparations for the Ashes.
