Batsman Shane Watson has been named in Australia's squad for ODIs three and four against the West Indies at the Manuka Oval in Canberra and Sydney Cricket Ground this week.

He has replaced the left-handed Usman Khawaja, who scored only 11 runs in the first two matches of the five-fixture series.

Watson, who no longer bowls in international cricket due to several injuries, has managed scores of 30 and a duck for Sutherland in Sydney grade cricket - and six for New South Wales against Western Australia in a recent limited-overs match - since his recovery from a calf strain.

"Watson comes back into the squad as an opening batsman. Shane has recovered from his injury and we look forward to seeing him get back to his best. He has replaced Usmam in the 13-man squad," said national selector John Inverarity.

19-year-old spin bowler Ashton Agar, meanwhile, has been added to the Test squad for the four-match series in India.

Agar's inclusion is in a development capacity, on the back of three impressive performances since his debut for Western Australia against New South Wales earlier this year.

"Agar will be in India for the period of 9 to 16 February and will play in the first warm-up fixture," added Inverarity. "He will provide ideal practice for the batsmen in the lead-up to that first Test in Chennai.

"Last year we took Mitchell Starc to the West Indies to further his development and this is a similar opportunity for Ashton."
