Clint McKay called into Australia Test squad

Fast bowler Clint McKay has been called into the Australia squad ahead of Wednesday's Test against Pakistan - with Ben Hilfenhaus an injury doubt.

Yorkshire's McKay, 27, has played in one Test for Australia, recording 1-101 against the West Indies last summer.

Hilfenhaus injured his shoulder during Australia's 150-run victory over Pakistan at Lord's but Australian selectors are hopeful he will recover.

If not, paceman Peter George is likely to make his Test debut at Headingley.

George was a late addition to the squad when fast bowler Ryan Harris suffered a knee injury during the fifth one-day international against England on 3 July.

McKay also featured in Australia's 3-2 one-day series defeat by England but South Australian George is expected to be handed a first Test appearance after bowling in Australia's warm-up match against Derbyshire.
