Australia Name Unchanged Squad
Australia have unsurprisingly named an unchanged 12-man squad for the third Ashes Test against England in Perth, which begins on Friday.
After handing England 381-run and 218-run defeats in Brisbane and Adelaide, and with no injury concerns, the National Selection Panel (NSP) has opted to maintain the same squad.
The team that delivered those crushing victories and all-rounder James Faulkner will head to the WACA knowing that one more win will see them regain The Ashes.
Prior to the match in Adelaide, New South Wales left-arm quick Doug Bollinger and Western Australian fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile were placed on standby for the Perth Test
They will now remain on standby and train with the squad.
"The NSP have selected the same squad of 12 for the Perth Test. Another player could be added to the squad during the week pending review of conditions in Perth," NSP Chairman John Inverarity confirmed.
"Nathan Coulter-Nile and Doug Bollinger will be in Perth on standby and training with the squad for the Test match should they be required."
Australia Test squad: Michael Clarke (captain), George Bailey, James Faulkner, Brad Haddin (vice-captain, wicket-keeper), Ryan Harris, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Lyon, Chris Rogers, Peter Siddle, Steve Smith, David Warner, Shane Watson
Standby: Doug Bollinger, Nathan Coulter-Nile
