Australia are 2-0 up in the series

Cricket Australia have announced that they have selected the same 12-man squad for the third Ashes Test in Perth.

The decision was made after Australia thrashed England by 381 runs in Brisbane and 218 runs in Adelaide.

Australia all-rounder James Faulkner will continue to be the 12th man, while the pace duo of Doug Bollinger and Nathan Coulter-Nile, who were put on stand-by, will train with the team.

“The National Selection Panel have selected the same squad of 12 for the Perth test,” national selector John Inverarity said. “Another player could be added to the squad during the week pending review of conditions in Perth.”
