Ashes: England name 12-man squad for 1st Test at Gabba, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow miss out
Ben Stokes, Joe Root

England named a 12-man squad on the eve of the first Test of the Ashes series against Australia at the Gabba in Brisbane. Joe Root will lead the side which has some big-ticket absentees, including pacer James Anderson and middle-order batter Jonny Bairstow.

While wicketkeeper-batter Jos Buttler confirmed on Tuesday that James Anderson will be rested for the 1st Test as a precautionary measure, considering the day-night Test that immediately follows the series opener, it seems England have preferred Ollie Pope over Jonny Bairstow, who struggled against India at home earlier this year.
