Commenting on the squad, National Selector John Inverarity said: “It all starts again on 3 January and we’ll go into the game with confidence and momentum. Ryan Harris has been added to the XI that played in the First Test in Melbourne. Ryan has had carefully monitored preparation, which has gone to plan. Mitchell Starc and Daniel Christian, who were both in squad for the First Test have been omitted but remain very much in our thinking.”
Updating on Shane Watson, Australian Physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said: “Shane has not fully recovered from his right calf injury and is therefore not available for the Sydney Test. He will continue his rehabilitation and hopefully be available for one of the remaining Test matches.”
The Australian squad assembles in Sydney on Saturday.
