TL;DR: Renshaw joins Australia squad for final Test

Alex Doolan's heroics for Tasmania are unlikely to stop Queensland winning the Sheffield Shield

Officially, Renshaw is cover for Australian captain Steve Smith after he was suspended for the upcoming match by the ICC for admitting to hatching a plot to tamper with the ball in Cape Town.

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. He and vice captain David Warner agreed to stand down as team leaders pending an investigation by Cricket Australia, which is expected to result in further sanctions possibly for both the senior batsmen and Bancroft.

Coach Darren Lehmann's future is also under intense scrutiny.

Renshaw was replaced by Bancroft for this summer's Ashes series but has surged back into the fray with hundreds in three consecutive Shield games.

"It's pretty surreal", Renshaw said.

The victor of each group after three days of round robin advances to the 18-hole single elimination matches. Noren pulled ahead, only for Kisner to make a 50-foot eagle putt on No. 12 to square the match.

While Bancroft only averaged 25.57 with the bat during the Ashes, he has fared a little better in the ongoing Test series against the Proteas as he is Australia's highest run-scorer with 223 runs, which includes two half-centuries, at an average of 37.16.

Opening batsman Matt Renshaw has been added to Australia's squad for the fourth Test against South Africa in what could be the first of many call-ups.

Warner and Bancroft are yet to receive any sanctions from Cricket Australia, but Renshaw's addition to the squad suggests he could feature at the top of the order come Friday.

He has been handed over a one-Test match ban by ICC.
