Sydney: Australia on Monday added batsman Alex Doolan to their squad ahead of the final Ashes Test against England as doubts remained over the fitness of some players.
Cricket Australia said the Tasmanian was the only addition to the squad which is leading the series 4-0 and firm favourite to win the fifth Test starting Friday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Doolan is expected to be available if all-rounder Shane Watson is ruled out after suffering a groin strain during the fourth Test win in Melbourne. Fast bowler Ryan Harris is also battling chronic knee soreness. (Aus check on Harris, Watson)
