Spinner Steve O'Keefe is expected to be recalled to the Australian squad for the third Test against Pakistan starting on Tuesday.

O'Keefe did not travel to Adelaide with the Sydney Sixers for their Saturday BBL clash and is set to be named in the SCG Test squad to be announced later on Friday.

With Australia's next Test assignment following the SCG clash being the four-Test series in India, left-armer O'Keefe could get another chance to partner out-of-sorts NSW teammate Nathan Lyon, or even replace him.

The pair were Australia's spin twins in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Kandy in July before O'Keefe tore his hamstring and missed the rest of the tour.
