Wanderers players are still considering whether to participate in the FIFA tournament because the club have refused to negotiate over what they believe to be a “fair and equitable share” of the prize money.

SYDNEY, Dec 4 (Reuters) – Australia have called batsman Shaun Marsh into their squad for the opening test of the four-match series against India, which was pushed back to next week after the death of Phillip Hughes.

The call-up for Marsh, who joins his brother Mitch in the squad, could be an indication that captain Michael Clarke is still an injury doubt for the match, which starts in Adelaide next Tuesday.
