Australia call up Boland to Ashes attack

Australia call up Boland to Ashes attack

Cricket Australia on Tuesday called up fast bowler Scott Boland to the squad to face England in the potentially Ashes-clinching Boxing Day Test in Melbourne, reports AFP.

The Victorian quick had already been training with the side and will provide injury cover for a bowling attack that has torn through England's batting order to take a comfortable 2-0 lead in the five-match series.

Cricket Australia said he "joins the squad while the medical team assesses the fast bowling group following the second Test victory."
