Injured batsman Simon Katich retained his place, while Australia's National Selection Panel picked an unchanged 13-man squad for the inconsequential third and final Test against Pakistan, commencing from January 14 in Hobart.

The hosts have already bagged the three-match series by winning first two encounters.

"Following Wednesday's exceptional series-winning victory, the NSP has selected an unchanged squad, along with Simon Katich, for the final Test of the home summer," Andrew Hilditch, chairman of the selection committee, said in a statement.

Australia sealed the series by snatching a remarkable victory in the second Test in Sydney that saw reversal of roles even after the hosts were bowled out for a paltry 127 on the first day.

Meanwhile, Cricket Australia said they are yet to take a final call on the availability of injured Katich, who will continue to get treatment for his elbow injury while touring with the squad.
