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|
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.
