"Victoria and Melbourne Stars seam bowler John Hastings has been called up to Australia's squad for match two of the Victoria Bitter ODI Series against India, at The Gabba in Brisbane on Friday," Cricket Australia said in a press release.
Marsh will return to the side for the third encounter of the series, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday.
Explaining the decision, National Selector Rod Marsh said, "Mitch is a tremendous asset to Australian cricket and we are conscious of managing his workload and his travel, especially with so much cricket to come during the rest of this summer and beyond”.
"By taking this decision we have opted to give him an extra day at home in Perth after match one, before he flies to Melbourne on Thursday to prepare for Sunday's third match of the series,” added Marsh.
