Buoyed by the resounding success of their pacers, Australia [ Images ] are expected to play four fast bowlers in the third cricket Test against India [ Images ] at Perth by drafting in Ryan Harris into the playing eleven.
There was an indication to this as Australia flew Harris to Sydney [ Images ] to join his teammates rather than letting him play for Brisbane [ Images ] Heat in Friday's Big Bash match at the Gabba [ Images ].
Harris, who is recuperating from chronic knee and hip injuries, has 35 wickets at 21.37 from eight Tests.
Australia are keen to play him on the bouncy WACA [ Images ] ground pitch where he took nine wickets against England [ Images ] last year, including 6-47 in the second innings, a report in the Herald Sun said.
Harris, whose last Test was in November against South Africa [ Images ], has taken two wickets in three Big Bash matches for Heat since returning from injury in December, with a best haul of 1-31 against Melbourne [ Images ] Stars at the Gabba.
The Perth Test starts on January 13.
