The duo was picked as part of a 13-player squad ahead of the four-game series commencing on the Gold Coast on 17 November.

Carey, 27, has quickly become a mainstay in Australia’s white-ball setup since making his ODI debut for Australia in January earlier this year.

The wicketkeeper/batsman, who hit his maiden century for SA against Queensland in December last year, was named Australian T20I vice-captain in May and has already racked up 15 T20I appearances.

Leg-spinner Zampa was also named in the squad after playing in all four T20Is during Australia’s tour of the United Arab Emirates last month.

The 26-year-old has 19 wickets from 17 T20I outings in the green and gold.

Fellow West End Redbacks Alex Ross and Kelvin Smith were also included in a Cricket Australia XI squad set to play South Africa in a T20 tour match leading into the international series.

Tasmania’s Ben McDermott will captain the CA XI side in the clash on 14 November.
