Lyon gets his chance to shine

Test off-spinner Nathan Lyon is set to play his first one-day international since October 2014.

Lyon has been recalled to Australia's ODI squad for the final two matches of the five-game series against India, with destructive opener David Warner also returning after parental leave.

The games will be in Canberra tomorrow and Sydney on Saturday.

As well as impressing in the Test arena, Lyon was outstanding with the white ball in his limited opportunities for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League, taking 5-23 against Hobart.

In the Matador One-Day Cup last October, the 28-year-old also took eight wickets at 30 in seven outings, conceding five runs an over.

"Our choice of Nathan Lyon comes off the back of good form in the BBL and we decided the time is right to have another look at him in the shorter forms of the game," Cricket Australia selector Rod Marsh said.

Joel Paris and Usman Khawaja make way for the pair.

Left-armer Paris will return to the Perth Scorchers for their BBL semi-final against the Melbourne Stars on Friday night.

The 23-year-old had the underwhelming figures of 0-53 and 1-40, both from eight overs, in the first two one-dayers against the Indians.

Khawaja was unlucky not to play in the series against India after an amazing summer that saw him score three Test hundreds and a ton for the Sydney Thunder in the BBL.

The Thunder needed the Adelaide Strikers to beat the Melbourne Renegades in last night's final BBL minor round game to earn a semi-final match-up against the Strikers in Adelaide on Thursday night.
