BRISBANE (AFP) - Daniel Christian was added Monday to the Australian squad for this week's second and final Test against New Zealand in Hobart as the home side look to wrap up a series win. The South Australian allrounder, yet to make his Test debut, was included following a side strain injury to paceman Ben Cutting while injured Shane Watson, Pat Cummins, Ryan Harris and Shaun Marsh were not considered. Australia go into the match starting on Friday leading the series 1-0 after Sunday's emphatic nine-wicket victory over the Black Caps in the Gabba Test inside four days. Debutant paceman James Pattinson turned in a man-of-the-match performance with 5-27 in New Zealand's second innings of 150 to set the Australians just 19 runs for victory. "It is disappointing for Ben that he will be side-lined for some weeks with a side strain, but this provides an opportunity for Daniel, who has been performing well as an all-rounder for South Australia," chief selector John Inverarity said. "The balance of a team is always enhanced by the presence of an energetic all-rounder who is in good form." Australia team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said opening batsman Shane Watson was making good progress after a right hamstring injury and was on track for the Boxing Day Test against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Teenage paceman Cummins, man-of-the-match in Australia's two-wicket win over South Africa in Johannesburg last month, is still recovering from a left heel injury. Harris is set to resume bowling this week after recovering from a pelvic injury, while Marsh is progressing well after a lower back injury sustained in South Africa. Left-arm paceman Mitchell Johnson had surgery last week for a left foot injury and is expected to be out of action for five months. Australia squad: Michael Clarke (capt), David Warner, Phillip Hughes, Usman Khawaja, Ricky Ponting, Michael Hussey, Brad Haddin, Peter Siddle, James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Dan Christian.
