Australia has omitted fast bowlers Peter Siddle and Ben Hifenhaus for the Series Decider Test Match at Perth. Both the bowlers had heavy workload in the absence of the injured Pattinson during the drawn second Test at Adelaide and hence rested. Australia have good replacements in their XI with Shane Watson coming back after recovering from his injury and so is left-arm quick Mitchell Johnson. The place of James Pattinson will be contested by rookie fast bowlers Josh Hazlewood and John Hastings. Hazlewood is expected to win that contest and make his Test Debut at Perth which will also see Ricky Ponting bow out of International Cricket.

Australia’s 12-man squad for Perth Test:

Michael Clarke (Captain)

Shane Watson (Vice-Captain)

Ed Cowan

Josh Hazlewood

John Hastings

Mike Hussey

Mitchell Johnson

Nathan Lyon

Ricky Ponting

Mitchell Starc

Matthew Wade (Wicket Keeper)

David Warner
