Ashes 2019: England Call Up Sam Curran & Chris Woakes for Oval Test

Ashes 2019: England Call Up Sam Curran & Chris Woakes for Oval Test

Australian selectors have dropped a selection bombshell on the eve of the fifth and final Ashes Test, dumping vice-captain Travis Head, who makes way for all-rounder Mitch Marsh to return to the XI.

Steve Smith has been England's tormentor-in-chief in the ongoing Ashes series, which Australia have already retained after winning the fourth Test in Manchester on Sunday.

"You can't just give them that experience, they have to earn that and we're very thankful to have Steve batting", he said.

"I did miss a lot in, I suppose, the prime years of my cricket career", Paine said.

" We (need) to look after our big fast bowlers".

Australia's 12-man squad for fifth Test: David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Mitch Marsh, Matthew Wade, Tim Paine (capt), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood.

"A couple of his teammates from back then put out books since the '05 Ashes and talked about sugar-coating the cricket ball to get reverse swing in that series".

Smith scored 211 and 82 in the game to take his tally for the series to an astonishing 671 runs at an average innings of 134.2, including three hundreds, despite missing England's one-wicket win in the third Test at Headingley with concussion. "We have spoken a lot about it". Last week's result was brilliant.

As a member of one of Australia's greatest Test teams in the 1990s and 2000s, Langer experienced many victory parties and he joked the current generation's celebration was not especially impressive. "This is our grand final".

Root said Stokes' injury had prompted Roy's omissions because the "balance" of the side needed to change.

"But I'm sure he'll go away and work extremely hard and come back again".
