Aussies unchanged for second Ashes Test

Australia Captain Michael Clarke says Shane Watson is back to 100 percent fitness.

Australia have named an unchanged side for the second test against England in Adelaide

CAPE TOWN - Australia will go with an unchanged team for the second Ashes Test against England in Adelaide.

The game gets underway in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Australia Captain Michael Clarke says, "James Faulkner stays as our 12th man, which is tough on him because he's been playing some really good cricket, both with bat and ball.

He says Faulkner is unlucky to have missed out.

"I think the selectors looked at the wicket and thought about the extra bowling option with James Faulkner.

"But having Shane Watson there who can bowl and who's back to 100 percent fitness is a real positive for the team."
