Following their emphatic victory over England in the third Ashes Test match at Perth, Australia have named an unchanged 12-man squad for the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne.

Uncapped left-arm spinner Michael Beer will travel to Melbourne along with the 11 players who outplayed England on their way to a 267-run victory at the WACA.

Captain Ricky Ponting is a fitness doubt, however, as he is carrying a fractured little finger on his left hand.

The National Selection Panel (NSP) will decide on a standby for Ponting, if required, closer to the match, which gets underway on 26th December.

The series is level at 1-1 with two matches to play.

Australia squad for fourth Ashes Test: Ricky Ponting (captain), Michael Clarke (vice-captain), Michael Beer, Brad Haddin, Ryan Harris, Phillip Hughes, Ben Hilfenhaus, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle, Steven Smith, Shane Watson
