Australia retains winning combination for Perth Test
Australia retains winning combination for Perth Test

Australia has left the door open for an all pace attack in Perth this week after announcing their squad for the third Test at the WACA Ground.

The national selectors have announced the same 12 players for the first two Tests have been retained with WA's Nathan Coulter-Nile and Doug Bollinger on standy.

And one of the pair could be elevated if the Australians believe the Perth pitch will be particularly lively.

"The NSP have selected the same squad of 12 for the Perth Test. Another player could be added to the squad during the week pending review of conditions in Perth. Nathan Coulter-Nile and Doug Bollinger will be in Perth on standby and training with the squad for the Test match should they be required," said selection chairman John Inverarity.
