Swepson and Wildermuth will travel with both Australia A's four-day and one-day squads, while Heazlett has been picked as a 50-over player only. 

The selection is a just reward for the trio who had standout campaigns for the Heat in BBL|06. 

Swepson proved to be one of the club's most effective bowlers, with the leg-spinner's season haul of 12 wickets seeing him picked in Australia's Test squad to tour India.

Likewise Wildermuth was a consistent performer with both bat and ball, scoring crucial runs in the Heat's middle order and claiming nine wickets, while Heazlett had a taste of life in the Australian green and gold after making his One-Day International debut against New Zealand in February. 

Australia A will contest two four-day games against South Africa A and play tri-series against the hosts and India A.
