Paceman Bird called into Oz squad for SCG ODI

Sydney: Fast bowler Jackson Bird has been called into the Australian one-day squad for the fourth match against Sri Lanka at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Bird made an eye-catching start to his Test career this summer and is now in line to make his ODI debut in the fourth match of the five-game series against Sri Lanka, the Age reports.

The visitors have humiliated Australia in the past two matches to lead the series 2-1. Sydney-born Bird took seven wickets and was man-of-the-match in the third Test at the SCG against Sri Lanka earlier this month.
