Sydney, Oct 22 (IANS) Western Australian opening batsman Shaun Marsh will replace injured Phil Jacques in the squad for the remainder of the Border-Gavaskar Test series in India.

"Shaun has been selected having opened the batting for Australia in the one-day international arena (against West Indies) and has shown great potential," Cricket Australia's (CA) national selection panel (NSP) Chairman Andrew Hilditch announced Wednesday.

"He has recently moved to open the batting in all three forms of the game in interstate competition and played very well in Western Australia's run chase and victory at the WACA against New South Wales," he added.

Jaques has returned home to seek specialist advice for a back injury.

"As a replacement batsman on the tour, should the opportunity arise, we are confident that Shaun could fill any role in the batting order. We have also taken the opportunity to enhance Shaun’s international experience as we consider him to be one of the promising young batsmen in Australia," Hilditch concluded.

Australia trail the four-match series 1-0 and will face India in the third Test in New Delhi from Oct 29.
