New South Wales batsman Kurtis Patterson has been added to the Test squad to play Sri Lanka.
Patterson forced himself into the side with twin unbeaten centuries in the Cricket Australia XI tour game against Sri Lanka at Blundstone Arena.
In a match that had been billed as a “bat-off” between Joe Burns, Matt Renshaw and Marnus Labuschagne it was Patterson who demanded picking with scores of 157* and 102*.
Renshaw made 7 and 10, Burns 4 and 22, and Labuschagne 6 and 50.
The first Test of the series begins in Brisbane on Thursday.
