india Updated: Dec 13, 2006 18:44 IST

Australia named all-rounder Andrew Symonds in place of the retired Damien Martyn in their team for the third Ashes Test against England starting on Thursday.

Symonds, who played the last of his 10 Tests against South Africa in April, will bat at number six in the order with Mike Hussey and Michael Clarke moving up a spot to four and five respectively.

Fast bowler Mitchell Johnson was named as 12th man with uncapped batsman Adam Voges dropping out of the original 13-man squad.

Martyn announced his retirement from cricket three days after Australia won the second Test in Adelaide by six wickets to take a 2-0 lead in the series.
