"To me, I think England are in a better situation going into that first Test than what Australia are", Warne told reporters on Friday. Simply choose two openers, three middle-order batsmen, an all-rounder, a wicketkeeper, one spinner and three seamers.

The selectors also sprung a major surprise when they named Tim Paine as the wicketkeeper, the Tasmania gloveman who last played a Test match seven years ago.

Nevill had been strongly forecast to return to the side a year after he was dropped for Matthew Wade in the wake of Australia's disastrous defeat to South Africa in Hobart.

"Tim was identified as an global player a long time ago and has always been renowned as a very good gloveman, also performing well for us whenever he has represented Australia in any format", Hohns said. "His batting form in recent outings for the Cricket Australia XI and Tasmania has been good".

Pundits were quick to query the decision.

Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow (19) and Moeen Ali (5) were the others dismissed on Friday, with Root's 83 marking the 11th time an Englishman had made a half-century but failed to reach 100 on the tour. "It's at mum and dad's, so I have to go and get it at some stage today and make sure I pack it for tomorrow's flight".

It will also contribute to a gradual decline in general government debt burden over the medium term, it said. Moody's added that the high debt burden, however, remains a constraint on the country's credit profile.

Uncapped Western Australian Cameron Bancroft replaces 10-test Renshaw as David Warner's opening partner after scoring a mountain of Shield runs in the leadup to the first test in Brisbane starting next Thursday.

Paceman Chadd Sayers has been added to the strong fast-bowling line-up in the squad along with Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Jackson Bird to give selectors options depending of the state of the Gabba pitch for next week's first Test.

"We didn't really have anyone jumping out demanding selection except for Cameron Bancroft", Hohns told reporters in Brisbane on Friday, describing the squad as one of the most hard his panel had ever picked.

Both men have endured recent struggles in the Test arena and they each failed to make an impact in the first three rounds of Australia's first-class competition, when it was clear their country's wicketkeeping slot was very much up for grabs.

Steve Smith's side are undoubted favourites to beat England on home soil and their squad for Brisbane - also notable for the call-up of in-form rookie batsman Cameron Bancroft and an umpteenth recall of Shaun Marsh - does not change that.

"Cameron has been a player of interest to us for some time now, having been unlucky to miss out on the Test tour to Bangladesh that was cancelled in 2015". The 42-year-old said England's only chance of winning a match was the second test in Adelaide.
