Faulkner replaces injured Henriques

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - James Faulkner has replaced fellow allrounder Moises Henriques in the Australia squad for the first two ODIs against West Indies.

Henriques was ruled out for those games after undergoing surgery on his right index finger on Saturday.

Faulkner, 22, who plays for Tasmania, has played one T20 international for Australia, against India last year. He'll join the Australia squad on January 30, after playing for Prime Minister's XI in Canberra the day before.

The first two ODIs of the five-match series will be played in Perth, starting February 1.
