Australia have included fast bowler
Jason Gillespie in their squad for the fourth and deciding Test against India starting in Sydney on Friday.
Gillespie has been dogged by injuries
Gillespie broke down with a groin muscle strain during the second Test of the four-match series.
He was rested for the third Test, which Australia won by nine wickets on Tuesday to level the series at 1-1.
"Jason's progress is certainly encouraging," said Australia team physiotherapist Errol Alcott.
"He has undertaken a thorough rehabilitation programme
since suffering the injury in Adelaide and has bowled off a full run a number of times now.
"Despite not showing any signs of pain, he will remain under
daily review up until the Sydney Test."
Andy Bichel, who did not make the XI for the third Test, is also included as cover in a 13-man squad.
The Sydney contest will be Australia captain Steve Waugh's final Test.
"I'm really looking forward to it," he said. "But I want to think about the side and concentrate on the job that I have to do, both as a captain and as a batsman."
