Fast bowler Clint McKay has been added to Australia's Test squad as cover for Ben Hilfenhaus, who injured a shoulder during the first Test against Pakistan at Lord's.

McKay has been playing for Yorkshire as an overseas player and he joins up with a squad looking to seal the series 2-0 when they play the final match at Headingley from 21st July.

McKay has played one Test for Australia, against the West Indies in Perth earlier this year as well as playing in 12 One-Day Internationals, in which he has taken 22 wickets.

Hilfenhaus, who took three wickets at Lord's, had only recently come back from a serious knee injury and would likely be replaced by Peter George, who was himself a late addition to the squad following an knee injury to Ryan Harris, picked up in the fifth and final One-Day International against England.

Australia won the opening Test by 150 runs.
