Leg spinner Cameron White, rushed into the Australia squad after an injury to Brad Hogg, has been named in the team for the opening one-day match against the World XI on Wednesday.
The Victoria captain, who impressed with both bat and ball in his state's 12-run loss to the World XI on Sunday, was added to Australia's squad on Monday when Hogg was sent home for surgery on a knee injury.
Fast bowler Stuart Clark, who replaced the injured Shaun Tait, was left out of the 12-man squad with left arm fast bowler Nathan Bracken being preferred instead.
Adam Gilchrist will open the batting with a new partner after Matthew Hayden was dropped from the one-day side.
Team: Ricky Ponting (captain), Adam Gilchrist, Simon Katich, Damien Martyn, Michael Hussey, Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Andrew Symonds, Cameron White, Brett Lee, Glenn McGrath, Nathan Bracken.
