Henriques added to Test squad

New South Wales all-rounder Moises Henriques has been added to the Australian Test squad ahead of Thursday's opening Test at the Adelaide Oval, replacing fellow all-rounder Sean Abbott in the squad.

Abbott picked up a calf injury playing for Australia A against India at the SCG, only able to bowl seven overs in the second innings and ruled out of the remainder of the match.

Henriques will also serve as cover for Cameron Green, who is making steady process from a concussion sustained on the opening day of the second tour match.

33 year old Henriques has recovered from a minor hamstring niggle of his own that caused him to miss the tour match, now a chance of adding to his four Test matches for his country, the last more than four years ago in Sri Lanka.

Recalled to the Australian fold recently for the limited overs series against India, Henriques has never played a Test in Australia, having played three Tests in India in 2013 and his most recent Test in Colombo.

Henriques is the second player to be added to the Test squad in the space of three days, Victorian opener Marcus Harris included at the expense of state team mate Will Pucovski who suffered a concussion against India last week.
