Six New South Wales Blues will tour South Africa during late February and early March as part of the Australian T20 and One-Day International squads.

International Cricket Council No. 1 Test bowler Pat Cummins joins Steve Smith, David Warner and fellow quick Mitchell Starc in both squads to play the hosts in three T20 and three One-Day International squads.

Fast bowling allrounder Sean Abbott joins his Blues team-mates in the T20 squad, after the paceman missed an opportunity to tour India with the Australian One-Day squad in January due to a side strain.

Josh Hazlewood has been selected for the One-Day International component of the South African tour.

Smith, Abbott and Hazlewood are all expected to feature for the Sixers in the BBL|09 Final this Saturday at the SCG.

Blues allrounder and Sixers captain Moises Henriques has been chosen to lead Australia A against the England Lions in a four-day, day-night first class match at the MCG from February 22.

Henriques and Blues batsman Kurtis Patterson, who has recently returned to cricket after several months on the sidelines with a quad injury, are the two Blues selected for Australia A.

Smith recently made his ninth One-Day International hundred in the third and deciding match against hosts India, but was unable to prevent a home victory.

He made 131 from 132 balls to follow an impressive 98 in the previous match. He scored 229 runs for the series at an average of 114.5.

David Warner also made his 18th One-Day International century during that series passing 5,000 One-Day International runs in the process.

He scored 128 not out from 112 balls, during game one, in an unbeaten 258-run opening partnership with Australian captain Aaron Finch (110 not out) to guide the visitors to an emphatic win.

It was the third highest partnership for Australia ever in One-Day International cricket.
