Leg spinner Cameron White, rushed into the Australia squad after an injury to Brad Hogg, has been named in the team for the opening one-day match against the World XI on Wednesday.

The Victoria captain, who impressed with both bat and ball in his state's 12-run loss to the World XI on Sunday, was added to Australia's squad on Monday when Hogg was sent home for surgery on a knee injury.
