DateLine: 1st December 2009


Fast bowler Clinton McKay has replaced Ben Hilfenhaus in Australia's 12-man squad for the second Test against the West Indies in Adelaide which begins on 4th December.


Hilfenhaus picked up a knee injury during Australia's innings-and-65-runs victory in the opening match in Brisbane and there are no other changes to the squad. McKay made his One-Day International debut in the recent series in India, where he played twice, taking three wickets as Australia sealed the series 4-2.


"The injury to Ben Hilfenhaus is very disappointing following his outstanding Ashes and his man-of-the-match performance in Brisbane, but hopefully with treatment he will be fit to be considered for selection for the third 3 mobile Test in Perth," National Selection Panel chairman Andrew Hilditch said.


Australia squad : Ricky Ponting (captain), Michael Clarke (vice-captain), Doug Bollinger, Brad Haddin, Nathan Hauritz, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Simon Katich, Clinton McKay, Marcus North, Peter Siddle, Shane Watson
