Perth:

Tasmanian off-spinner Jason Krejza and Western Australian all-rounder Adam Voges have been called into Australia's squad for Sunday's final match of the one-day series against England in Perth.

The pair replace skipper Michael Clarke and all-rounder Shane Watson, both earning a rest with Australia holding an unbeatable 5-1 series lead and the World Cup starting in the subcontinent on February 19.

Krejza will become the fourth spinner to be used in the seven-match series after injuries sidelined Steve Smith (hip), Nathan Hauritz (dislocated shoulder) and Xavier Doherty (back).

Krejza will make his one-day debut for Australia if he is picked in the final XI at the WACA, while Voges has already played 14 one-day matches.

Cameron White will captain the side in Clarke's absence.

Meanwhile, Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait says the team can take enormous confidence into the upcoming one-day World Cup after Wednesday night's record run-chase against England.

The Australians chased down a target of 334 with four balls to spare at the SCG.

The match also marked Tait's return from a buttock muscle strain and he says he is happy with how his body feels after bowling 10 overs.
