Australia call up O'Keefe for Pakistan series

June 30, 2010 16:02 IST

New South Wales left-arm spinner Stephen O'Keefe has been called into the Australian side for next month's matches against Pakistan to replace the injured Nathan Hauritz, Cricket Australia said on Wednesday.

Haurtiz sustained a foot injury during the one-day series against England and has returned to Australia.

O'Keefe will join the Australian team in Britain for their Twenty20 internationals and two Tests against Pakistan after impressing for Australia A against Sri Lanka A in Queensland, chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch said.
