SYDNEY - Fit-again Ryan Harris is ready to take the place of injured fast bowler James Pattinson in the Australian team for next week's third Test against India in Perth, coach Mickey Arthur said on Saturday.

Pattinson will miss the rest of the four-Test series with a stress injury to his left foot after playing a leading role in Australia's 2-0 lead over India.

Pattinson, 21, has taken 21 wickets in his first four Tests as Australia inflicted heavy defeats on the tourists in Melbourne and then in Sydney on Friday.
