The Tasmanian Tigers have made two changes to their 13-man squad for the upcoming Sheffield Shield clash against Victoria at the MCG.

James Faulkner and Riley Meredith have been brought into the squad, replacing Andrew Fekete who is nursing a foot injury and Jackson Bird who will travel to Brisbane to train with other fast bowlers in contention for Australia’s first Test squad.

Faulkner returns to the side after completing a block of training to manage a knee injury, while Meredith, who will make his first-class debut if selected, was in great form in Tasmania’s Futures League clash against Queensland this week taking eight wickets for the match.

Tim Paine, who is currently playing for the CA XI against England in Adelaide in a tour match which finishes on Saturday, has been named in the squad and is available for selection.

The Tigers’ match against the Victorian Bushrangers commences at the MCG on Monday, November 13.
