Joel Paris is set to return to Sheffield Shield action just weeks after becoming a father.
Paris has been named in the WA squad for their clash with South Australia at the Adelaide Oval starting tomorrow.
The left-arm paceman starred in their win over the Redbacks in December.
The West Australians sit second on the Shield ladder with three fixtures remaining before the March 27 Final.
It comes after Paris and wife Kodie celebrated the arrival of their first child last month.
Emmie Blay Paris was born on January 28.
“You are absolutely perfect,” Paris said via social media.
“Kodie you are such a trooper and I’m very proud of you. Love these two like nothing else!”
Meanwhile, Sam Whiteman has been named in the Cricket Australia XI squad for a clash with the England Lions in Hobart later this month.
Whiteman also recently welcomed his second child.
