Melbourne: Spinner Jon Holland has been replaced by Brad Young in the Adelaide Strikers squad for the ongoing Australia`s domestic Twenty20 cricket tournament, the Big Bash League (BBL).

The BBL technical committee approved the change Tuesday, said a press release.

Holland, recovering from shoulder injury, will be unavailable for the duration of the league.

Left-arm spinner Young played six One-Day Internationals (ODI) for Australia in 1998 and 1999 and has played 54 first-class matches for South Australia between 1996 and 2003. He also took a hat-trick at the 1998 Commonwealth Games against New Zealand.

Young will be available for selection in the Strikers` next match, a clash with Brisbane Heat at the Adelaide Oval Thursday night.
