Australia set for same again
Australia look set to name an unchanged side for the fourth Ashes Test against England in Melbourne next week after making just one change to their third Test squad.
Western Australia batsman Adam Voges, who was included in the 13-man squad before the Perth Test, has been trimmed from the party.
After Shane Watson was ruled out of the series with a hamstring injury this week, Andrew Symonds and Mitchell Johnson have kept their places in the triumphant hosts’ squad.
Australia regained the urn after dismissing England for 350 in their second innings to win by 206 runs.
Shane Warne claimed his 699th Test victim by bowling last man Monty Panesar to confirm victory and the Cricket Australia selectors have opted for the same personnel for the Boxing Day Test.
