Australian team announced its 15 member squad that will play test matches in India vs Australia 2008 October, November series.
Andrew Symmonds is out of test series ( Good news for fragile test team of India ) . He missed the team meeting and training session for a fishing expedition that irked the selectors and dropped him altogether from the series. The bad boy of cricket needs some break and his recent performances right from IPL Deccan chargers to recent Bangladesh series is a dismal mark in his cricket career. May be the days of his cricket are numbered. Got to see if Shane watson can fill his gap for mighty Kangaaroos.
New faces — left-arm blowler Doug Bollinger, off-spinner Jason Krejza, leg-spinner Bryce McGain and pacer Peter Siddle.
Here is the 15-member team squad:
Ricky Ponting (captain), Matthew Hayden, Phil Jaques, Michael Clarke (vice-captain), Simon Katich, Shane Watson, Michael Hussey, Doug Bollinger, Stuart Clark, Brad Haddin (Wicketkeeper), Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson, Jason Krejza, Bryce McGain, Peter Siddle.
