Khawaja will join the squad in Brisbane and at this stage, will remain for matches two and three of the five-game series at the Gabba on January 15 and at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on January 17, Cricket Australia said.
     
National selector Rod Marsh said Warner would be welcomed back into the squad when circumstances allow.
     
"We wish both David and Candice (Warner's wife) well and look forward to welcoming David back into the squad when circumstances allow," Marsh said.
     
Commenting on Khawaja's call-up, Marsh said, "Usman has been in fantastic form this season and was unlucky to miss out on a place in our squad for the Victoria Bitter ODI Series in the first place. This call-up is a reward for that form and it is great to have someone of his quality to step into the squad in David's absence”.
