Australian duo Adam Voges and Nathan Coulter-Nile will bolster the Warriors line-up for the upcoming Bupa Sheffield Shield
game against the West End Redbacks which begins at Adelaide Oval next Thursday.
Voges, who has been in excellent form with the Australia A
side, will return to captain the side in the must-win match as WA strive to
make the Shield final.
Coulter-Nile, who is WA's leading wicket-taker this season,
returns after missing last week's win over the Tasmanian Tigers due to a groin
injury which forced him out of the Australia A squad.
Jason Behrendorff has also been named in the 12-man party
after missing the Tasmania game with a minor hip complaint. Burt Cockley has
retained his place after a promising WA debut where he hit the winning runs.
Luke Towers, Tim Armstrong and Ryan Duffield, who won the Man
of the Match award against the Tigers after taking seven wickets, are the
unlucky players to drop out of the 12-man squad.

Meanwhile, the WACA State Match Committee have named a
12-player squad for the Toyota Futures League match against South Australia which
commences at the WACA Ground on Monday.
Among the squad are veterans Marcus North and Nathan Rimmington, as
well as Michael Beer, who continues his recovery after a shoulder injury, and
Ashton Turner, who made an exciting WA debut in last week's RYOBI One-Day Cup
loss to Tasmania.
