Australia pick two new caps for final Ashes Test

Michael Beer and Usman Khawaja will make their Test debuts for Australia in the last Ashes match against England in Sydney, beginning on Monday. Stand-in captain Michael Clarke verified on Sunday morning that the slow left armer and number three batsman will take their places in the line-up, with Doug Bollinger the man to miss out.

Clarke said: “The XI has been picked and Dougie misses out. Usman and Beery will get their first taste of Test cricket.”Australia need to win the Test to level the series at 2-2, although England have already retained the Ashes after their innings-and-157-run victory in Melbourne earlier this week.
