Johnson back in Australia ranks
Australia have recalled Mitchell Johnson for the third and final Test against South Africa, which starts on Friday in Perth.
The left-arm Western Australia paceman, who has been out of the five-day squad since suffering a serious toe injury against the Proteas in Cape Town last November, has been included in a 14-man party alongside John Hastings and Josh Hazlewood.
With James Pattinson ruled out after suffering a mystery rib injury while bowling on Saturday, Mitchell Starc appears likely to take his place after being 12th man for the first two matches.
Shane Watson has come in to replace Rob Quiney, who struggled over his first two Tests and earned a pair of ducks against Graeme Smith's side in Adelaide.
National Selection Panel chairman John Inverarity said: "The pace bowling stocks in the squad have been boosted with the addition of the experienced Mitchell Johnson and emerging paceman Josh Hazlewood.
"John Hastings, who has played 11 ODIs and three T20s in Australian colours, deserves his inclusion in the squad following his excellent recent form. In Bupa Sheffield Shield cricket he has taken 22 wickets at 18.3 and consistently scored valuable lower-order runs.
"Josh Hazlewood is a very exciting 21-year-old pace bowler. He debuted for New South Wales when he was 17 and played an ODI game for Australia at 19. He has been improving steadily this season after an injury interrupted 2011-12 season.
Australia squad: Michael Clarke (captain), Shane Watson, Ed Cowan, Josh Hazlewood, Ben Hilfenhaus, John Hastings, Mike Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Lyon, Ricky Ponting, Peter Siddle, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade (wicketkeeper), David Warner.
