Australian skipper Michael Clarke will captain the NSW SpeedBlitz Blues against the Western Warriors in their opening fixture of the season in the Ryobi Cup at the WACA on Sunday (16 September).

Clarke, will captain a talented side that can boast 7 players who have represented Australia at Test, ODI or T20 level, alongside some exciting youngsters who will get a chance to show their ability this season.

The squad has had a make-over with the loss of Simon Katich, Phil Jaques, Brett Lee, Usman Khawaja, Phillip Hughes, Nathan Hauritz and Timm Van Der Gugten. Despite this there is a depth of talent that will allow players such as Nic Maddinson, Scott Henry, Sean Abbott, Josh Lalor and Chris Tremain to show their wares. 

Brad Haddin will keep wicket with Peter Nevill included as a specialist batsman.

Two players will be omitted on the morning of the match.
