Australian squad for fourth Vodafone Test announced

17/01/12 Category: News Posted by:

 Cricket Australia’s National Selection Panel (NSP) today announced an unchanged 12-man squad for the fourth and final Vodafone Test against India beginning in Adelaide on Tuesday 24 January.

The 12-man squad is:

Michael Clarke (c) NSW 30
Brad Haddin (vc) NSW 34
Ed Cowan TAS 29
Ryan Harris QLD 32
Ben Hilfenhaus TAS 28
Mike Hussey WA 36
Nathan Lyon SA 24
Shaun Marsh WA 28
Ricky Ponting TAS 37
Peter Siddle VIC 27
Mitch Starc NSW 21
David Warner NSW 25

 

NSP Chairman John Inverarity said:

“A spin bowler has always been a priority in Test matches at Adelaide Oval and it is very likely that Nathan Lyon will replace one of the other bowlers in the final XI for the fourth Test.

“The fact the Australians were able to dismiss India in only 60 and 63 overs in Perth and the extra two rest days because the Test finished early has meant that there is reduced concern about excessive workloads for the fast bowlers.

“Michael Clarke’s team will be striving to maintain the momentum with a win in Adelaide.”

The Australian team will gather in Adelaide on Friday afternoon, training Saturday, Sunday and Monday before day one of the fourth Test on Tuesday.
