Johnson rested for remaining ODI’S against South Africa

Australia has announced squad for remaining 3 ODI’s against South Africa and rested their medium pacer Mitchell Johnson. They picked Pat Cummings in place of Johnson who came well after injury and performed well in T20 series. Nathan Lyon has been replaced by Doherty but they didn’t included another batsman in place of Clarke and added addition bowler Mitchell Starc to their pace attack. Mitchell Johnson was rested to ensure that he was fit for upcoming series against India and cricket world cup 2015. "We have chosen not to replace Michael Clarke in the squad with another batsman. After considering the situation we believe we have enough batting depth for the next three matches of this series without calling in another player," Rod Marsh said."We have decided to add two extra pace options to the squad with Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. That also gives us the opportunity to ensure Mitchell Johnson is fresh and well prepared ahead of the first Test against India," He added.
