Australia captain Michael Clarke will play in the opening Test against India, beginning on Tuesday at the Adelaide Oval.
Clarke was in doubt for the clash due to an ongoing hamstring issue, however with the date of the opener being pushed back due to the passing of Phillip Hughes, the 33-year-old has recovered in time.
The skipper has battled back and hamstring issues of late, however he reportedly put in a number of strong sessions in the nets in the lead up to the clash.
Seamer Josh Hazlewood will be 12th man for the Test, while Phillip Hughes has been named an honorary 13th man.
Shaun Marsh, called in as cover for Clarke, is the other member to miss the final XI.
David Warner, Chris Rogers, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (C), Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh, Brad Haddin, Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon.
