Marcus Stoinis will play for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League on Tuesday before travelling to Perth for the third ODI.

Marcus Stoinis has been called up to Australia's one-day international squad to replace the injured Mitchell Marsh.

Marsh was ruled out of the rest of the ODI series against Pakistan due to a shoulder injury.

Stoinis will play for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League on Tuesday before travelling to Perth for the third ODI.

A six-wicket win in Melbourne on Sunday saw Pakistan level the five-match series at 1-1.

Adam Zampa has also been released to play for the Stars against the Brisbane Heat, but will then return to the Australia squad for Thursday's match.

Stoinis – whose only previous ODI was in 2015 – has made 71 BBL runs this season, including an unbeaten 40 last time out, and taken two wickets.
