Fast bowler James Pattinson, who took two five-wicket hauls in his first four Tests last year, was called into the Australia [ Images ] squad for the remainder of the Tri-series against Sri Lanka [ Images ] and India [ Images ] on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old missed the last two Tests in the recent series against India and Australia's first seven matches in the Tri-series because of a foot injury and replaces fellow quick Ryan Harris in the squad.
