Cricket Australia has announced the name of the 17-member team members for the upcoming Ashes, the five-match Test series will begin in Birmingham on August 1.
National selector Trevor Hones said on Friday night that the trio joined the Australia Test team again for the Ashes. David Warner, Cameron Bancroft, and Steve Smith made the team for the first time since the debut of the embarrassing ball-tamping saga that started their career. Mitchell Marsh has also been recalled in the team.
Matthew Wade and Maran Labbucheng also benefited from domestic cricket. Cameron Bancroft returns to the Test team for the first time after tampering with South Africa's ball. David Warner proved to be good enough to return to the Test and the Ashes campaign was to withdraw his career and prestige.Chief selector says that we have the best preparation for this series
“It has been a difficult task to reduce the 25-player squad here in Southampton down to 17 and those who have not made the final Ashes party are all desperately unlucky. However, that problem also highlights that we have a degree of depth to select from and that is a terrific positive,” national selector Trevor Hohns was quoted as saying in cricket.com.au.
“We have had excellent preparations for this series, with eight players from this squad forming part of the Australia A tour that has been in the UK for more than a month, six who took part in the ICC Cricket World Cup, and three who have been playing county cricket. It means the players are acclimatised and ready for the first Test,” he added.
Here is Australia’s squad.
Tim Paine (c), Cameron Bancroft, Pat Cummins, Marcus Harris, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Michael Neser, James Pattinson, Peter Siddle, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, David Warner.
