“All-rounder Moises Henriques has been added to Australia’s squad for the first Test against India after the hosts’ camp continues to be hit with injury,” a report in cricket.com.au said.

Abbott became the latest Australian player to join the injury list after picking up the strain during the second warm-up game here which ended in a draw. He is, however, expected to be available for the second Test in Melbourne, which is scheduled to begin on December 26.
