England has named seamer Jake Ball ahead of Craig Overton in their side for the first Ashes Test against Australia which starts in Brisbane tomorrow (23).
 
Ball, 26, has recovered from the sprained ankle he suffered on 10 November and which kept him out of England's final warm-up game last week.
 
Australia has called up all-rounder Glenn Maxwell as cover for David Warner, who has a stiff neck, and Shaun Marsh, who has a sore back.
 
England team:
Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, James Vince, Joe Root (Capt.), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Stuart Broad, Jake Ball, James Anderson
 
Meanwhile, Australian captain Steven Smith confirmed that seamers Jackson Bird and Chadd Sayers will miss out, meaning pace bowlers Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood will feature in the same Test side for the first time.
 
Australia squad: Steve Smith (captain), David Warner, Cameron Bancroft, Jackson Bird, Pat Cummins, Peter Handscomb, Josh Hazlewood, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Shaun Marsh, Tim Paine (wk), Chadd Sayers, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell
