Australia have named an unchanged 12-man squad for the fourth and final Test against India, which gets underway in Adelaide on 24th January.

Although the squad is unchanged, off-spinner Nathan Lyon is expected to come back into the side at the expense of one of the seam bowlers.

"A spin bowler has always been a priority in Test matches at Adelaide Oval and it is very likely that Nathan Lyon will replace one of the other bowlers in the final XI for the fourth Test," National Selection Panel (NSP) Chairman John Inverarity confirmed.
 
"The fact the Australians were able to dismiss India in only 60 and 63 overs in Perth and the extra two rest days because the Test finished early has meant that there is reduced concern about excessive workloads for the fast bowlers.
 
"Michael Clarke's team will be striving to maintain the momentum with a win in Adelaide."

Australia lead the series 3-0.
