Australia trio Travis Head, Alex Carey and D'Arcy Short were cleared to play for their respective teams in the Big Bash League final on Sunday.

It remained unclear whether Strikers duo Head and Carey and the Hobart Hurricanes' Short would be available for the decider in Adelaide.

However, the trio were named in the respective squads on Saturday.

Head, Carey and Short are in Australia's squad ahead of a Twenty20 against New Zealand in Sydney on Saturday.

They are set to fly to Adelaide early on Sunday, taking their places in the BBL final later in the day.

While the Strikers will be playing in their first decider, the Hurricanes are in their second, but are also aiming for their maiden title.
