Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood are set for their first action since the Ashes after they were named in the New South Wales squad for the Marsh Cup match against Tasmania on Wednesday.

The pair have been kept on ice since the end of the series in England. Cummins played all five Tests as well as the entire World Cup while Hazlewood played in four of the Ashes matches following his return from a stress fracture of the back.

After the one-day game Hazlewood is expected to come into the Sheffield Shield side for New South Wales' next match against South Australia in Adelaide while Cummins is part of Australia's T20I squad to face Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

New South Wales will field six players who were part of the Ashes with David Warner, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon also in the Marsh Cup squad. Warner will be playing his first domestic one-day match since 2013 before also switching to Australia colours, along with Smith and Starc, for the T20Is.

Tasmania skipper Matthew Wade has been ruled out due to a minor groin injury he suffered in the Sheffield Shield game that concluded at Drummoyne Oval on Monday. Jordan Silk will captain Tasmania in Wade's absence.

The fixture has been moved to North Sydney Oval after the problems with the SCG surface. The match is between the bottom two sides in the Marsh Cup with both having managed just one win from their first four matches.

Elsewhere, Ashton Turner is set to return from a finger injury to captain WA against Victoria at the WACA. Nathan Coulter-Nile will miss the clash due to a calf injury. Australia T20 captain Aaron Finch has been named in Victoria's squad but is still touch and go to play as he recovers from a side strain. Victoria have rested their first-choice attack of James Pattinson, Peter Siddle, Chris Tremain, and Scott Boland.
