Lord's snub for Pattinson
James Pattinson has been omitted from Australia's 12-man squad for the second Ashes Test at Lord's.
The fast bowler took just two wickets as the visitors stormed to a 251-run win in the opening match of the series at Edgbaston.
Mitchell Starc has been recalled to the squad for the encounter, with Josh Hazelwood also involved as Australia look to continue their dominance.
A statement on the Cricket Australia website said Pattinson was considered for selection but his injury history led to those at the helm deciding to give him the match off to manage his fitness.
With a seam-heavy look to the 12-man squad, captain Tim Paine says it is essential the tourists utilise their resources properly as they aim to develop a cohesive unit that will prove potent for years to come.
"We want to make sure the five or six bowlers we've got here have the next three or four years bowling as a group together," he said. "There will be some management as part of that at some stage."
