Australia squad unchanged

Australia have named the same squad for the third Test of the Ashes series, following their 218-run win at Adelaide that put them 2-0 up.

The second of back-to-back games starts on Friday, meaning a quick turnaround for the players. The National Selection Panel have therefore put seamers Nathan Coulter-Nile and Doug Bollinger on standby at the WACA.

National selector John Inverarity said: "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.

“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 squad for third Ashes Test in Perth: Michael Clarke (captain), Brad Haddin (wicketkeeper), George Bailey, James Faulkner, Ryan Harris, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Lyon, Chris Rogers, Peter Siddle, Steven Smith, David Warner, Shane Watson.
