Bollinger and Coulter-Nile on stand-by for Perth Test

7:51 am on 5 December 2013

Australian fast bowlers Doug Bollinger and Nathan Coulter-Nile have been placed on stand-by for next week's third Ashes cricket Test against England in Perth.

The pair are injury cover, though the selectors are hoping to name the same 12 for Perth. The second Test starts today in Adelaide with an unchanged team.
