Marsh comes in as a like-for-like replacement for Usman Khawaja, who will miss the Adelaide match with a hamstring injury, while Pattinson replaces Mitchell Johnson, who retired at the end of the second Test on Tuesday.

Australia will take a 1-0 series lead to the Adelaide Oval for the world's first day-night Test match, which starts on November 27, after a 208-run win in Brisbane and a draw in Perth. Seamer Peter Siddle, who was included in the squad for the first two Tests but did not make the team, will be hoping to join Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood in the pace unit.

Pattinson might get his chance to play a first test in nearly two years, however, as he is more of a strike bowler and skipper Steve Smith has suggested Hazlewood might need a rest to manage his workload. The 25-year-old right-arm quick bowler has played just 13 tests since his debut against New Zealand four years ago as injuries have taken their toll.

"James has made a good return to (Sheffield) Shield cricket following his injury and has earned this recall," head selector Rod Marsh said. "He has worked incredibly hard and we are confident that he is ready to perform at Test level if selected."      

Left-armer O'Keefe, 30, played his only Test against Pakistan last year and has been included so Australia can pair him with offspinner Nathan Lyon if the Adelaide Oval looks like being particularly conducive to spin under the lights.

"We are unsure what conditions we will see there," Marsh added. "Stephen was included in our squad that was to go to Bangladesh and if he should get an opportunity, we think he will make the most of it."

Squad: David Warner, Joe Burns, Shaun Marsh, Steve Smith (captain), Adam Voges, Mitchell Marsh, Peter Nevill (wicketkeeper), Peter Siddle, James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Steve O'Keefe.
