Shaun Marsh has been added to Australia’s squad for the first Test against India starting on December 9.
Marsh’s addition sees the 12-man Test squad extended to 13, as the grieving players turn their attention from the death of Phil Hughes to the opening match of the four-Test series.
The West Australian’s inclusion could see him play alongside brother Mitchell and become the first siblings to play Test cricket for Australia since Steve and Mark Waugh in 2002.
“The national selection panel has today advised that West Australian Shaun Marsh has been added to the Test squad as an additional batsman for the first Test,” Cricket Australia said in a statement.
“The Australian Test squad will assemble in Adelaide today and tomorrow ahead of the first Test starting on Tuesday 9 December.”
Marsh made an unbeaten 134 for Western Australia last Tuesday, the day the Test squad was selected.
