Australia have recalled the all-rounder Steve Waugh and the pace bowler Paul Reiffel for the second Test against Sri Lanka, which starts on Boxing Day in Melbourne. Waugh and Reiffel return to the 12-man squad after missing Australia's crushing innings victory over the tourists in the first Test in Perth earlier this month because of injury. Waugh has recovered from a groin strain to return to Australia's middle order in place of Stuart Law while Reiffel, out of the first Test because of a hamstring injury, regained his status as Australia's third seam bowler at the expense of Brendon Julian.

TOUR MATCH (Brisbane, first day of three): Australia XI 323 for 7 dec (G S Blewett 115); West Indies 37 for 0.
