Cricket Australia (CA) is expected to make an announcement about its investigation into the ball-tampering incident on Tuesday (South Africa time).

Incidentally, Renshaw was dropped ahead of the Ashes owing to his poor form and replaced by Cameron Bancroft - one of the two players, alongside Steve Smith, to be charged by the ICC after their confession to tamper the condition of the ball on Day 3 of the third Test in Cape Town.

A decision on Darren Lehmann's future as Australia coach may also be announced by CA.

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. The Queensland batsman played ten Test matches for Australia country and amassed 623 runs with a best of 184 runs. Matthew Renshaw's inclusion comes after Cameron Bancroft's ball-tampering attempt was caught on camera.

Renshaw, who is fifth on the chart of the leading run-getters in the competition, will leave for Johannesburg this evening before the fourth and final Test against South Africa begins on Friday.
