Australia on Tuesday announced their 12-man squad for the second Ashes Test at Lord’s starting Wednesday. Both Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, who were left out of the first Test against England, have been included in the squad while pacer James Pattinson has been left out.
Pattinson had picked up two wickets in the first innings of the first Test in Birmingham but drew a blank in the second innings even as Australia registered a thumping 251-run victory.
Speaking on the eve of the Lord’s Test, Australia captain Tim Paine said that they will be managing the workload of five or six bowlers to keep them fit and fresh for the future.
