All rounder returns for Boxing day Test

Australia has named their playing xi for the Boxing day test and has made one change in the team by replacing an all rounder for Peter Handscomb who is a pure batsmen.

They have included Mitchelle Marsh and as per the captains view this move has been done due to need of strengthening their pace attack and inorder to manage the workload of the bowlers by getting an additional bowling option included.

But captain Tim Paine hinted a possibility of including Handscomb again for the 4 th test by saying Sydeney pitch would be much helpful for the spinners and Handscomb is one of their best batsmen wo can play spinners pretty well.

Australia xi named for the 3 rd Test is as follws:

1.Aaron Finch
2.Marcus Harris
3.Usman Khawaja
4.Shaun Marsh
5.Travis Head
6.Tim Paine
7.Mitchelle Marsh
8.Pat Cummins
9.Mitchelle Starc
10.Nathan Lyon
11.Josh Hazlewood
