Australia's woes in the ongoing tour of India mounted as they were forced to call in Brad Haddin as cover for wicket-keeper Matthew Wade, who has sprained his right ankle and is in doubt for the third Test starting at Mohali on March 14.

"Cricket Australia (CA) advises that Matthew Wade's scans have confirmed a sprained right ankle. Given the uncertainty of Wade's availability, Brad Haddin will fly from Australia to Mohali on Monday to join the squad," CA said in a statement.
