Sydney, Jan 2: Australia has announced an unchanged starting XI for the second test against India at the Sydney Cricket Ground beginning on Tuesday, retaining offspiner Nathan Lyon.

Fast bowler Ryan Harris, who did not recover from injury in time to be part of the Melbourne test which Australia won by 122 runs last week, has been named as the 12th man.

Michael Clarke on Monday said Harris has “been a wonderful bowler for us ... it was tough to leave him out, but we've stuck with the winning team.”

There had been speculation that Harris could be recalled as part of an all-pace attack for the 100th test at the SCG, which has lost its reputation as a turning wicket in recent years.
