Hilfenhaus called in for injured Harris

Sydney: Australian pacer Ben Hilfenhaus is all set to make a return in the Australian Test side following Ryan Harris" knee injury. Hilfenhaus is in line to come back in the side following his recovery from knee tendinitis that sidelined him for most of the Australian summer.

The 27-year-old Tasmanian swing bowler was Australia"s most successful pacer during last year"s 2-1 loss in the Ashes series. The conditions in England is ideal for him and he is set to be a key player in the Australian bowling line-up.

Harris had injured his right knee during Saturday''s final match of the one-day series against England at Lord"s, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

“He will take no further part in the T20 or Test matches against Pakistan in England and will return to Australia for further assessment," Australian physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said on Sunday.

Others in contention are in-form South Australian Peter George and Victorian seamer Clint McKay.

Youngster Josh Hazlewood is the other fast bowler having a chance of selection, but is yet to leave England after touring with the one-day side and making his international debut last month in Southampton.
