Paine has been recalled to Tasmania for Sheffield Shield duties, which means Nielsen, who received a full state contract this season, is a certain starter for the match.

Nielsen impressed with the gloves when he was called in at the last second to keep wicket for South Africa last year, taking four catches against the CA XI.

He was also selected in the CA XI squad for the 2017 JLT One-Day Cup, impressing with nine dismissals in six matches and a top-score of 94 against Victoria.
