Pomersbach then made a most unusual debut for the Australian cricket team in a Twenty20 International against New Zealand in Perth on 11 December 2007. Having not been selected in the original squad for the match, Pomersbach was at the ground as a spectator, when a back injury to Brad Hodge during the warm-up forced the Australian team to call on Pomersbach as an emergency replacement. He again performed well, scoring 15 runs from 7 balls, including a 6 off the third ball he faced. Pomersbach also won the 2008 Bradman Young Player of the Year.
