Melbourne: Australia dropped batsman George Bailey from the squad for their three-Test tour of South Africa on Monday and brought uncapped Alex Doolan and Shaun Marsh into the 15-man party.
James Faulkner was also included in the party and is likely to contend with Doolan and Marsh for the No. 6 spot in the batting order vacated by Bailey. James Pattinson and Jackson Bird have been called up to reinforce the pace attack.
The squad: Michael Clarke (captain), Brad Haddin, Jackson Bird, Alex Doolan, James Faulkner, Ryan Harris, Mitchell Johnson, Shaun Marsh, Nathan Lyon, James Pattinson, Chris Rogers, Peter Siddle, Steve Smith, David Warner, Shane Watson.
