Renshaw called up for fourth Test against South Africa

The southpaw's urgent call-up comes following the suspension of captain Steven Smith from the next Test after public confessions of leading the ball-tampering scandal which saw Cameron Bancroft rub one side of the ball with a sandpaper during the third Test at Cape Town.

Renshaw will fly out immediately after the Sheffield Shield Final in Brisbane later on Tuesday to join up with his teammates in Johannesburg. A choice on Darren Lehmann's future as Australia mentor may likewise be declared by CA.

The action is based on preliminary findings of the investigation and sanctions are expected to be announced within the next 24 hours.

The announcement that he had been drafted into the Australian squad came before he went out to bat on Tuesday, and he capped his national recall with an unbeaten 81 from 83 deliveries in Queensland's nine-wicket win over Tasmania in the final.

Cricket Australia today made a decision to send home captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, a newcomer in the team, for their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal.

The Aussie team is due to play the final Test against South Africa in Johannesburg that starts on Friday. "I'm really looking forward to getting back into the test arena and expressing myself". Ironically, Bancroft was chosen to replace Renshaw after the latter suffered a lean run of scores across Tests in India and Bangladesh before Australia's home season commenced.

Previous Shield-winning Queensland captains include Allan Border, Jimmy Maher, Stuart Law and James Hopes, with Peirson now joining them having just 16 first class games to his name.
