Agar joins Australia squad for 4th test vs India

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Australia has named an unchanged squad for the fourth test against India starting next week, with the addition of Ashton Agar as a second spin option.

Agar, who scored a memorable 99 in his test debut against England last year, will join Nathan Lyon should selectors opt to choose a second spinner for the Sydney Cricket Ground, which usually provides plenty of turn.

Mitch Marsh was earlier ruled out of the fourth test starting Jan. 6 with an aggravated hamstring injury.


Australia squad: David Warner, Chris Rogers, Shane Watson, Steve Smith (captain), Shaun Marsh, Joe Burns, Brad Haddin, Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Ashton Agar.
