Melbourne, Nov 13 (ANI): Andrew Symonds has answered an urgent call from an injury-hit Queensland to line up for the Bulls in Alice Springs on Saturday.

Symonds, who ended his international career when he was sent home from England in June, will make a surprise return to domestic cricket against South Australia in a one-day clash.

The former Test all rounder had his Cricket Australia contract torn up after breaking team rules during the Twenty20 World Cup, The Herald Sun reports.

Symonds, who continues to play for the Deccan Chargers in the IPL, announced before the Australian season that he would only play for Queensland in the Twenty20 Big Bash tournament and in the advent of injuries.

Such a situation has struck after back-to-back Sheffield Shield matches against Tasmania and the Redbacks took their toll.

The 34-year-old has replaced paceman Chris Swan (groin) in the Bulls squad and will travel from Adelaide to the Northern Territory with the team on Friday.

The Bulls are also missing Australian allrounder James Hopes (hamstring) and senior quick Ryan Harris (foot). (ANI)
