Australia will today name a 14-man squad for the first two tests against Pakistan, with Usman Khawaja and Marcus Harris the unlucky batsmen to miss out, according to multiple reports.
Despite a poor showing in the Australia A game Joe Burns has been named, while Cam Bancroft has also been included.
Michael Neser has also been rewarded for his consistent form with a spot in the squad.
Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and James Pattinson have also been named as part of a strong pace battery.
Will Pucovski earlier today asked not to be selected in the squad, taking a break from the sport for mental health reasons.
Former Australian coach Darren Lehmann believes the squad is too large.
