Maddinson, 25, was a surprise inclusion in the Test team last November alongside Matt Renshaw and Peter Handscomb as the selectors sought an injection of youth after being hammered by South Africa in Hobart.

He made a duck on debut against the Proteas in Adelaide and averaged just nine runs in three innings against Pakistan before being dropped.
