Andrew Fekete and Hamish Kingston have been included in Tasmania’s Sheffield Shield squad for this week’s clash with Western Australia at Bellerive Oval.

Fast bowlers Jackson Bird (hamstring) and Gabe Bell (fractured toe) were hurt during the Tigers’ loss to Queensland over the weekend.

Bird, who has also been forced out of Australia’s Test tour of South Africa due to his injury, is the Tigers’ best performing red-ball bowler this summer with 26 wickets at 19.19, while Bell, 22, has been one of the rising stars of the domestic scene this summer with 24 wickets at 19.79.

Tasmania coach Adam Griffith said earlier this week that Riley Meredith would come into the XI.
