Moises Henriques has been added to the Australia squad ahead of the first Test against India, with Sean Abbott ruled out.

Along with Mitchell Starc, Henriques, 33, joined the squad in Adelaide, where the first Test begins on Thursday.

The all-rounder has played four Tests, the last of which came in 2016, for Australia.

Henriques’ inclusion comes after Abbott suffered a mild calf strain in Australia A’s tour game against India in Sydney.

Abbott finished with match figures of 3-70 in the tour match and is expected to re-join the squad ahead of the Boxing Day Test.

His injury is just the latest worry for Australia.

David Warner (adductor) and Will Pucovski (concussion) have already been ruled out, while Cameron Green (concussion) is also in some doubt.
