Australia captain Michael Clarke is doubtful for the traditional Boxing Day Test because of a hamstring injury.

If Clarke is not passed fit to face Sri Lanka, all-rounder Shane Watson will lead the Test side for the first time, with batsman Usman Khawaja standing by to replace Clarke in the middle order.

As several pacemen are ruled out with injuries, uncapped right-arm seamer Jackson Bird will make his Test debut.

Bird, gets his chance as left-armer Mitchell Starc is rested.
