Australia have named their 15-man squad for the ICC Champions Trophy, which begins on 22nd September in South Africa.
The Australian selectors have named a squad to defend the title they won in 2006 with few surprises, save for perhaps the inclusion of pace bowler Peter Siddle and Cameron White, who have not been regular members of the squad in the last two years.
Australia begin their defence with a match against the West Indies on 26th September, also playing India and Pakistan in Group A.
Australia: Ricky Ponting (captain), Michael Clarke (vice-captain), Nathan Bracken, Callum Ferguson, Brad Haddin, Nathan Hauritz, Ben Hilfenhaus, James Hopes, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee, Peter Siddle, Adam Voges, Shane Watson, Cameron White
