Australia have added fast bowlers Doug Bollinger and Ryan Harris to their squad for the second Ashes Test, which gets underway in Adelaide on 3rd December.

Both men were initially named in a 17-man provisional squad ahead of the Brisbane match, which was drawn against the backdrop of Australia's bowlers conceding 517 runs and taking one wicket in England's second innings.

Left-armer Bollinger and right-armer Harris were subsequently released as Peter Siddle was handed a recall and left-arm spinner Xavier Doherty given a debut.

Despite another poor Test for batsman Marcus North and England's dominance of the final two days of the game, the National Selection Panel (NSP) has decided against making any further changes.

Australia 2nd Test squad: Ricky Ponting (captain), Michael Clarke (vice-captain), Doug Bollinger, Xavier Doherty, Brad Haddin, Ryan Harris, Ben Hilfenhaus, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Simon Katich, Marcus North, Peter Siddle, Shane Watson
