​Sydney: Fast bowler James Pattinson, who took two five-wicket hauls in his first four tests last year, was called into the Australia squad for the remainder of the Tri-series against Sri Lanka and India on Tuesday.

The 21-year-old missed the last two tests in the recent series against India and Australia's first seven matches in the Tri-series because of a foot injury and replaces fellow quick Ryan Harris in the squad.

Michael Clarke, named Australia's Player of the Year on Monday, is also expected to return from a back injury to resume the captaincy in the final round robin match against Sri Lanka in Melbourne on Friday.



Australia have already qualified for next week's best-of-three final and will be joined by Sri Lanka if India fail to record a bonus point victory over their sub-continental rivals in Hobart later on Tuesday.

Squad - Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Dan Christian, Xavier Doherty, Peter Forrest, Ben Hilfenhaus, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Brett Lee, Clint McKay, James Pattinson, Matthew Wade, David Warner.
