Alongside Sandhu, the selectors also picked Pakistani asylum-seeker Fawad Ahmed, who was granted a permanent Australia visa in November. The 33-year-old leg-spinner left his home in the border region near Afghanistan to come to Australia on a short-stay visa to play cricket in 2010 and has established his credentials at the Melbourne Renegades.

PM’s XI: Ricky Ponting (capt),  Brad Haddin, Fawad Ahmed, Jono Dean, Alex Doolan, James Faulkner, Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Kane Richardson, Gurinder Sandhu, Ashton Turner, Nick Winter (12th man).
