Harris replaced Mitch Marsh in Boxing Day test Australia squad

Joe Burns also included in the Australia team for Boxing Day test match who may make debut for the country.

Ryan Harris included in Australia's third test against India in Border-Gavaskar trophy 2014-15.

Australian coach Darren Lehmann said, “You’re always trying to look ahead when you can, but you’re still living in the moment. We think he’s the best man. He can fit anywhere from one to six (in the batting order). He gives us a little bit more flexibility compared to the other two … and it’s a chance to play a guy who is young.”

“When I saw him play, I thought he could really play at the next level. It’s taken him a while, he’s had some ups and downs like all players do. Now he’s put his name up at the right time,” he added.

Ryan Harris was not a part of Australian squad in the 2nd test match at Gabba. Lehmann said, “Ryan Harris bowled with Peter Siddle this morning. Will make a call closer to Boxing Day about our final XI.”

  1. Steve Smith (Captain)
