Travis Head has been ruled out of the last one-day international against Sri Lanka because of a hamstring problem, while all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has been called into Australia's Test squad ahead of the first match in Galle.
In other words, Maxwell may play his first Test match since 2017 and his first first-class match since 2019 if he's selected for next Wednesday's game against Sri Lanka. He last played against Bangladesh in Chattogram about five years ago. 
"We know Glenn has had some red-ball success in these types of conditions and we're looking forward to him getting back and playing a good block of cricket through the T20s and one-day cricket," Bailey said. "If he shoots the lights out or anyone else does particularly well, there's always going to be opportunities."
Earlier, it is believed that Head ran more than 15 kilometers during the third ODI, with the difficult terrain and humid weather making recuperation difficult. The 28-year-old ran more than 11 kilometers despite having a slight hamstring injury after game four's loss.
Pacer Mitchell Starc (finger) and Steve Smith (quad) are both out for the dead-rubber final match after Sri Lanka clinched the series in the fourth ODI with a win by 4 runs.
