Overton ruled out of Boxing Day Test

Overton ruled out of Boxing Day Test

However, Cummins said it would continue from Australia, who have little reason to pull back despite taking an unassailable 3-0 lead in the Ashes series so far.

Anderson remarked last week Australia have "got problems" beyond their gun pace trio of Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins.

Reports said that Starc, who is Australia's leading wicket-taker in the Ashes series with 19, could be ruled out of the fourth Test as soon as Saturday.

James Sutherland, the Cricket Australia chief executive, has given the Test team's fast bowlers the green light to carry on their concerted short-pitched attack on England's tail, leaving it up to the game's neutral umpires to intervene if they think play is becoming too unsafe relative to the skill of the batsman on strike.

"You've got to win this one first."Smith said the MCG drop-in wicket looked flat meaning hard work for the bowlers."It looks pretty flat".

"I'm obviously going to disagree with that - I'm sure if you asked any of the guys in the camp, the coaches or support staff or players, they would back me up on that", Root added. "I hope he [Jackson] takes five wickets and sticks it up for those daft comments from the Poms".

Victorian police said the public can be confident about security for the fourth Test between Australia and England starting on Boxing Day. "We need to put in better performances, take the Test match with two hands and ram it home".

Though Starc had clearly hoped to play, he admitted that in the end it was important that he did not allow the bruised heel to worsen into the sort of injury that cost Pat Cummins a full worldwide summer in 2011-12.

"If we'd won the game, then you'd maybe say there'd be more questions posed to Australia", opening batsman Mark Stoneman told reporters on Tuesday. He deserves a crack and hopefully he goes really well."Bird has been on seven overseas Test tours and has played in only two of them, most recently being overlooked during series in India and Bangladesh".

Given England haven't really got anyone to bring in in place of him, expect the left-hander to try and grind it out in Melbourne and show critics why he has over 11,000 runs to his name. "They're all pretty competent batters". As a tai-lender I know I'm going to cop it.

"So if there's anyone that can compartmentalise that, I think it's Tim".

"They have been completely blown away".

Incredibly, he has scored hundreds in each of his past three Boxing Day Tests and few would bet against him making it four in a row here.
