Australia have replaced seamer Doug Bollinger with batsman Alex Doolan in their squad for the Sydney Ashes Test.
Uncapped Tasmania batsman Doolan, 28, has been called up as batting all-rounder Shane Watson is suffering from a minor groin problem.
Bollinger makes way, with James Faulkner and Nathan Coulter-Nile seam options should the hosts require one, perhaps in light of Ryan Harris’ on-going knee complaint.
The same home line-up has won each of the first four Tests and bowling coach Craig McDermott hopes for no changes in the fifth and final game.
McDermott said: "As I keep saying, you don't play Test cricket without getting sore.
"I fully expect we'll have the same team – or the same bowling group – in Sydney. I'm very confident that will happen."
McDermott includes Watson in his term "bowling group", and believes the number three batsman has already demonstrated he is not in a significant state of disrepair after racing to 83 not out yesterday in Australia’s eight-wicket win at the MCG.
"Watto proved that yesterday – he ran between wickets pretty well," he said. "He's not the fastest mover at the best of times.
"He got through – he bowled in the second innings as well. I don't think there will be any drama with Watto."
Doolan, who played for Australia A versus England in November, was delighted – if a little surprised at first – to receive a call from national selector John Inverarity.
"I didn't quite know what to expect when I saw John Inverarity's number pop up on my phone," he said. "I was wondering what I'd done wrong.
"It's a real shock, and a real honour. It's going to be exciting, and something I will really cherish."
Australia squad: Michael Clarke (captain), Chris Rogers, David Warner, Shane Watson, Steven Smith, George Bailey, Alex Doolan, Brad Haddin, James Faulkner, Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon, Nathan Coulter-Nile.
