Sandhurst premiership player Todd Murphy will play for Australia at next month's Under-19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa.
Murphy was selected in the Australian squad after leading Victoria Country to the final of the National Under-19 Championships in Perth.
The off-spinning all-rounder was named in a strong 15-player squad alongside Victorian Sheffield Shield player Jake Fraser-McGurk.
"Our squad includes players of all disciplines with experience in domestic cricket environments, with some having already made promising starts to their careers at senior level,'' Cricket Australia national talent and pathway manager Graham Manou said.
"The under-19 World Cup provides these players with an exceptional development opportunity and we look forward to seeing them represent their country with distinction.
"We're looking forward to departing for South Africa in January and demonstrating the strength of our underage talent pool against international opposition."
Australia's squad will be coached by Chris Rogers, with Ryan Harris his assistant coach.
The squad will assemble at the National Cricket Centre for a training camp from 5 to 9 January, before departing for South Africa soon after.
Australia's World Cup campaign will begin in the Northern Cape city of Kimberley, where they will play three Group B matches against the West Indies (18 January), Nigeria (20 January) and England (23 January).
The top two teams from each of the four groups will progress to the top eight 'Super League' to determine the World Cup champions, while the third and fourth placed teams in each group will participate in the Plate League.
