Middle order batsman Matthew Wade has been dumped from Australia's test squad for the tour of South Africa after his lean series against India.

The tours are expected to be held concurrently in March, although there hasnt been confirmation of the schedule for test series.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Alex Carey has been included in the 19-man squad along with another uncapped player in Queensland paceman Mark Steketee.

South Africa will play two Tests and three Twenty20 Internationals on their tour, their first in Pakistan since a militant attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore in 2009 in which six policemen and two civilians were killed.

Cricket Australia (CA) on Wednesday strongly defended under-fire Test captain Tim Paine following back-to-back home series losses to India, saying "some of the commentary surrounding his position has been wide of the mark".

Aaron Finch (C), Matthew Wade (VC), Ashton Agar, Jason Behrendorff, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Josh Philippe, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, Daniel Sams, Tanveer Sangha, D'Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.

The 33-year-old was instead named in Australia's T20 tour of New Zealand.

The Australians were in strong positions to win the third and fourth tests but were unable to bowl out India in the fourth inning either time, and Paine came in for criticism for his leadership.

Paine had taken over captaincy in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa in 2018 when then skipper Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner were banned for a year for their role in the infamous incident.

"Tim Paine has been an outstanding captain since taking over the Australian men's Test team in incredibly hard circumstances", said Ben Oliver, CA's Executive General Manager (National Teams).

National selector Trevor Hohns said the South African series was deemed important enough to go with a first-choice squad, even though the series is not yet confirmed to go ahead.

Hohns said the T20 squad was created to give players a chance to push for selection at the 2021 T20 World Cup.

Meanwhile Aaron Finch will captain the T20 side for the five-game series against the Black Caps.
