David Hussey has been left-out of Australia's one-day squad for the upcoming tour of South Africa.

The Victorian has however been included in the squad for the Twenty20s but has been replaced by David Warner in the 50-over line-up.
Matthew Wade has been named as the second wicket-keeper in the party due to Brad Haddin's retirement from the T20 game and Tim Paine's injury while Patrick Cummins has been called-up in place of John Hastings, who is also injured.

Chief selector Andrew Hilditch has explained that Hussey has missed out due to his poor performances in the recent series with Sri Lanka and is now looking for Warner to prove he can produce on the international scene.
"David was picked for Sri Lanka as we thought he would be very well suited to the conditions, being an excellent player of spin bowling and having the ability to bowl valuable overs of spin," Hilditch said.
"We did not think that David quite took his opportunity in Sri Lanka and his place has been taken by David Warner."
