Melbourne: Big-hitting all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has been called into Australia`s Twenty20 side for the remainder of their three-match series against South Africa and will join the team before the second contest in Melbourne on Friday.

The 26-year-old Maxwell only returned from Australia`s 2-0 test series loss against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday.

Australia were hammered by seven wickets in Wednesday`s series opener in Adelaide and captain Aaron Finch said after the loss that Maxwell`s addition to the side should give them more balance and make them more competitive.

The final match of the series is in Sydney on Sunday.
