After their 2-0 series sweep against Pakistan, Australia have retained 13 of the 14-member Test squad for the upcoming three-match series against New Zealand at home, with the only omission being the extra batsman Cameron Bancroft.

Bancroft though remains attached to the squad as a reserve for the series opener in Perth, while James Pattinson and Michael Neser also continue to serve as reserve pacemen.

Australia are due to hosts New Zealand for a three-match Test series beginning with a day-night game in Perth from December 12. The second Test begins on Boxing Day at the iconic MCG and the final fixture will be played at the SCG from January 3.
