Fast bowler Shaun Tait has been added to Australia's One-Day International squad ahead of the final match against Pakistan in Perth.

Tait will join the squad of 13 as a standby player after Peter Siddle continues to suffer with back soreness and was ruled as a doubt for the game.

Australia lead the series 4-0 and Tait last represented his country in February 2009 during an ODI against New Zealand at the WACA.

"Shaun Tait at his best is a destructive fast bowler in both limited-over and Twenty20 cricket," National Selection Panel chairman Andrew Hilditch commented.
 
"He has progressed well this season and performed well in both the KFC Twenty20 Big Bash and the recent Ford Ranger game against New South Wales in Wollongong and we are sure he will be ready should he be required for tomorrow's match."
