Australian captain Michael Clarke has been named in the 12-man squad for the Boxing Day Test against Sri Lanka, with a decision on whether he will indeed play in the side to be put off for as long as possible.
After injuring his hamstring, Clarke was given a 50-50 chance to play.
Paceman Mitchell Starc has been rested for the match while left-armer Jackson Bird, 26, makes his test debut on the back of two outstanding Sheffield Sheilf seasons for Tasmania.

Cricket fans attending the Boxing Day Test have been warned to act responsibly or face Police or security intervention.
Police said drink driving and anti-social behaviour will be the focus of their presence in and around the MCG, with mounted Police and foot patrols to be stationed along Birrarung Marr and Jolimont Road from the MCG to Federation Square.
"The test is set to be a world-class event. If you are intending to go along, make sure you plan your way home in advance. If you’re going to drink, leave the car at home," Victoria Police Superintendent Rod Wilson said.
"If you are making a nuisance of yourself, police and security will intervene."
@marco & JB, you are clearly sooky soccer fans or rugby thugs, nick-off and leave our cricket be. Nearly seventy thousand at the MCG for this fabulous Boxing Day game (what an absolutely splendid venue), soccer would be lucky to get twenty thousand to ANY game in Australia.GIW Thursday 27 December, 2012 - 9:42 AM

"World class event" are you kidding me? Cricket is only played by about 6 countries, what next the AFL grand final is watched by 1billion people? We are so craving for attention in this city it's embarrassing.Marco Tuesday 25 December, 2012 - 8:47 AM
Who cares? Cricket is dying, it's boring & only appeals to old conservative Anglo's, like those who host 3AW's shows.JB Monday 24 December, 2012 - 4:58 PM
After his great performance in Hobart I can understand why Mitchell Starc is upset that he is to be 'rested' for the Boxing Day Test. Mitchell Johnson and Jackson Bird will need to put in as good a performance so that the selectors don't look stupid.Gloria Monday 24 December, 2012 - 4:57 PM
