Australia have called up left-arm quick Mitchell Starc as cover for their bowling attack, with concerns over the fitness of both Brett Lee and Shane Watson.

Starc, who last played for Australia against the West Indies in April, will be in the squad for the remainder of the ODI and T20 series.

"We have called up Mitchell Starc as cover, because we are still assessing the two injured players," said a spokesman.

Australia are currently 3-0 down in the five-game one-day international series.
