Matthew Renshaw added to Australian squad for fourth Test against South Africa

The call-up puts Cameron Bancroft and David Warner's spots at the top of the order in doubt

On Monday, In its attempt to carry out a thorough probe into the ball-tampering scandal involving skipper Steve Smith and batsman Cameron Bancroft, Cricket Australia sent Chief Executive James Sutherland to South Africa in order to assist with the ongoing internal investigation.

Renshaw, who hit the winning runs in an unbeaten 81 as he helped Queensland defeat Tasmania by nine wickets in the Sheffield Shield final in Brisbane this afternoon, will head to Johannesburg immediately and is expected to be available for selection for the fourth and final Test beginning at Wanderers on Friday.

It has forced sweeping changes to Australia's batting line-up and leadership group, giving Maxwell, Burns and Renshaw another potential shot in the Baggy Green while Tim Paine - who stepped in as interim captain in the third Test - will lead the country through one of its darkest times.

Fellow opener Cameron Bancroft escaped suspension from the ICC but will be under scrutiny for his central role in the incident, while coach Darren Lehmann's future is also unclear. Bancroft hasn't been the most consistent but Australia team management persisted with him for South Africa series.

Police question Netanyahu for second time
The Haaretz newspaper said he will deliver recordings of Netanyahu and his wife as part of his agreement with police. The graft scandals have come as Israel's coalition recently averted a crisis that could have led to early elections.

Both Renshaw and Maxwell last played for Australia in the Bangladesh series in September, overlooked for the Ashes in favour of Bancroft and the Marsh brothers.

"It's pretty surreal", Renshaw said.

The Aussie team is due to play the final Test against South Africa in Johannesburg that starts on Friday. Cricket Australia is not expected to be so lenient amid calls for serious bans for all players found to be involved.
