With the series already in their pocket, Australia [ Images ] on Tuesday decided to rest middle-order mainstay Michael Hussey [ Images ] and off-spinner Nathan Hauritz [ Images ] for the final One-dayer against West Indies [ Images ] at the MCG on Friday.
Cricket Australia National Selection Panel also dropped Tim Paine from the squad for the inconsequential match while brining in regular wicket-keeper Brad Haddin [ Images ] in his place.
Young leg-spinning all-rounder Steven Smith won a national call up after a promising Twenty20 [ Images ] debut against Pakistan recently.
The NSP have opted to give Hauritz and Hussey a break from the dead rubber after Australia had already clinched the five-match series against the Caribbeans 3-0.
"With the Commonwealth Bank Series won, the NSP has decided to give Mike Hussey [ Images ] and Nathan Hauritz the final match of series off in order to prepare for the upcoming VB Tour of New Zealand [ Images ]," NSP chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch said in a statement.
"Both Mike and Nathan have been significant contributors to the success of the team this summer and managing their workloads now will ensure they are well-prepared for what lies ahead.
"It's been an exciting season already for Steven Smith and he thoroughly deserves this opportunity in Australia's One-day international squad," he added.
