Australia announced Shake up Squad for 3rd Test…

Australia has announced their squad for all important 3rd ashes test that will start from 16th December at Perth.

Bollinger is dropped along with injured Katich, M North and spinner Xavier Doherty while a new face 26 years old Beer,Steve Smith, Phillips Hughes, Ben Hilfenhaus and M Johnson have been included in the squad.

Well, the squad is bit interesting because Australian batting is really down and they have omitted so-called specialist batsman M.North is replaced with Steven Smith whose batting has not impressed yet, his technique was under quite fire during Pak-Aussie series.

Also, out of form Johnson has been recalled. M.Beer is quite new to the scene infact he is playing his first season.

Phillips Hughes is also making his return to the side due to the injury of Simon Katich.

One thing is sure that Australia can’t afford to lose another test, if it happens then, Strauss will surely be returning home with the ‘URN’.

Australian Squad: Ricky Ponting (capt), Michael Clarke (vice-capt), Michael Beer, Brad Haddin, Ryan Harris, Phillip Hughes, Ben Hilfenhaus, Peter Siddle, Steven Smith, Shane Watson, Mitchell Johnson and Mike Hussey.
