Marnus Labuschagne included in Australia's squad for Sydney Test

Leg-spinning all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne was added to Australia's squad for the fourth Test against India in Sydney, starting Thursday.

Australia go into the game at the SCG 2-1 down in the four-Test series after a crushing 137-run defeat in Melbourne.

They had previously named a 13-man squad for both Melbourne and Sydney and have added South African-born Labuschagne for a match they must win to prevent India securing a first-ever series victory Down Under.

"We'll get up to Sydney and have a look at the conditions," skipper Tim Paine said in confirming Labuschagne's inclusion.

"From what we're hearing, it'll probably spin quite a bit so once we see that for ourselves, we'll start to think about the best combination for ourselves to win that Test."
