All-rounder Moises Henriques, who has played two ODIs, has also been recalled.
The trio ' Clarke, Warner and Wade ' missed the first two matches of the five-match series, which is tied 1-1. While Australia won the first match, Sri Lanka won the second. The next two matches are in Brisbane and Sydney on Friday and Sunday respectively.
Sri Lanka opener Tillekaratne Dilshan said the return of Clarke, Wade and Warner made the Australian team stronger.
"They are great players in the Australian side. They are match-winners," he said.
