Fraser-McGurk, Wes Agar added to Australia T20 squad

Rising star Jake Fraser-McGurk is a chance to make his T20 international debut after being added to the Australia squad for Tuesday's clash with West Indies at Optus Stadium.

Fraser-McGurk and Wes Agar were called up for the third and final T20 match in Perth after selectors opted to rest veteran paceman Josh Hazlewood.

Hazlewood snared 2-31 in Sunday's 34-run win in Adelaide, and has now returned home to rest up ahead of the multi-format tour of New Zealand.

Fraser-McGurk has already made a name for himself following a series of blistering knocks for both state and country.

The 21-year-old blasted the fastest one-day century ever seen in professional world cricket in October when he needed just 29 balls to reach triple figures in South Australia's cup match against Tasmania.

He backed that up earlier this month with 41 off 18 balls in Australia's ODI victory over West Indies.

Agar, with two ODIs to his name, is also in line to make his T20 international debut after being added as cover.

Australia lead the series 2-0 and will be aiming to secure a clean sweep.
