Matthew Renshaw has been called up to Australia's squad for the tour of Pakistan as batting cover after Mitchell Marsh was ruled out of Tuesday's opening one-dayer while wikcetkeeper Josh Inglis, spinner Ashton Agar and team physio Brendan Wilson tested positive for COVID-19.

Opening batsman Renshaw, who has played 11 Tests but no one-day internationals for Australia, will join the squad after flying to Pakistan and completing three days of isolation, Cricket Australia said.

Australia will play three ODI and a T20I against Pakistan in Lahore over the next week after wrapping up a Test series win over its host last Friday.

All-rounder Marsh injured his left hip flexor in training but scans revealed a low grade issue and CA said it was hoped he might still play a part in the tour.

Inglis, Agar and Wilson will isolate for five days after the positive test. All other members of the squad tested negative, CA said.

Test captain Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, David Warner and Glenn Maxwell will all miss the white-ball leg of the tour for various reasons.
