The Tasmanian Tigers have named their 13-man squad for the opening fixture of the 2017-18 JLT Sheffield Shield.

George Bailey leads the side as captain, with a host of experienced players also included in the squad.

Matthew Wade will make his Tasmanian First-Class debut, while Tom Rogers is also in line to debut if selected in the final XI.

Jackson Bird has overcome a hamstring injury which saw him miss the second half of the Tigers’ JLT One-Day Cup campaign, while Beau Webster returns to the Tasmanian set up after a stint with the CA XI during the JLT Cup.

The Tigers take on Western Australia at the WACA Ground in Perth in a day-night match, with the first ball due to be bowled on October 26 at 5pm AEDT.
