Melbourne: Opener Marcus Harris has received a recall to Australia's squad for their upcoming two-match Test series against the West Indies at home.
The Test series is crucial for Australia as they attempt to find a place in next year's ICC World Test Championship final and two victories over the West Indies side will push them closer to a berth.
Australia will play their first match of the series against West Indies on December 4 at the Perth Stadium while the second and final match of the two-match series will take place on December 8-12 at the Adelaide Oval.
Australia currently claimed second place on the ICC World Test Championship standings and the West Indies series is the first of three to ultimately determine their fate.
The 13-player squad announced by Australia on Tuesday is very much similar to the one that clinched the Ashes series over England at the start of the year, with Harris' inclusion warranted according to selection chair George Bailey.
Australia Test squad against West Indies:
Pat Cummins (c), Scott Boland, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Marcus Harris, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc and David Warner.
