England's injured Overton out of Melbourne Test

England's injured Overton out of Melbourne Test

Starc sustained a bruised heel during the win in Perth as Australia took an unassailable 3-0 lead over England to re-take the urn and will be replaced by reserve seamer Jackson Bird, who last played in the corresponding fixture previous year.

Young paceman Tom Curran will make his Test debut in England's only change for the fourth Ashes Test against Australia starting in Melbourne on Tuesday.The Surrey 22-year-old fast bowler replaces injured Craig Overton, who succumbed to a rib injury when the tourists relinquished the Ashes to the Australians in last week's third Perth Test.Curran has played three Twenty20s and a one-day global and was not originally chosen in England's Ashes touring squad. "I've copped about 50 so far this series so we get back as much as we dish out".

"Hopefully this gets them up and going and they fire some barbs at us, because I love that, I love whenever we're in a contest and I feel like they were quite flat in WA, that's for sure". Ponting senses Root is struggling to command the respect a leader needs, and suggests that has been demonstrated by some of England 's off-field controversies.

"You're always concerned when someone gets hit in the head but once you find out they're OK, I think it's part of cricket", Cummins said.

Australia will need that extra bowler, and the quicks will need to bowl stump to stump.

But Smith has vowed no let-up in short-pitched bowling against England's tailenders, despite claims the umpires should give the lower order more protection. "The way he answered a lot of the questions after the game last week seemed nearly like a little boy", said Ponting.

"Sometimes you pick your times when you want to go at people, sometimes you go into your shell like a turtle. It just looks like it has been a little bit soft". Despite Root winning all three tosses, Australia won by 10 wickets in Brisbane, 120 runs in Adelaide and an innings and 41 runs in Perth.

Jackson Bird gets the nod for the Boxing Day Test. "They have been completely blown away".

England allrounder Ben Stokes has ended his brief New Zealand cameo and is returning to the England "for family reasons", Canterbury cricket officials confirmed Saturday. "But it'd be unbelievable to play an Ashes Test on Boxing Day. We can't fault his attitude or his all-round contribution in his time with us and we are sorry that he couldn't stay with us for longer", Curwin said. It was probably ready to go three days ago.
