Cricket Australia (CA) announced that Wade’s scans have confirmed a sprained right ankle. Given the uncertainty of Wade’s availability, Haddin will fly from Australia to Mohali Monday to join the squad.

Australian team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said: “Matt has a complex ankle injury which has been confirmed by the scans and at this stage is in doubt for the third Test starting on Thursday. A final decision on whether he will be available for the third Test will be made closer to the match.”

India currently lead the four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-0 with the next two matches to be played at Mohali (March 14-18) and New Delhi (March 22-26).
