Ashes build-up: Sayers and Paine in surprise Australia shake-up

Australia vs England Pick your all-time greatest Ashes XI

The Ashes line-up was met with backlash when Tasmanian back-up keeper Tim Paine was selected to where the gloves and Shaun Marsh received his eighth Test recall, while Cameron Bancroft was the only surprise that didn't cop heat after his superb recent form.

Paine was left out of Tasmania's Sheffield Shield side earlier this season, with Wade behind the stumps for the state.

"The media can write what they want, the public can think what they want but, if you have positive energy around the team - which there is already - I know there will be support for everyone (in the test team)".

Bancroft comes in for out-of-form opener Matt Renshaw, on the back of his double-century for Western Australia this week, while previously unconsidered 30-year-old South Australia seamer Sayers is likely to be in contention mainly for the pink-ball Test on his home ground in Adelaide. He has leapfrogged incumbent Matthew Wade, favourite Peter Nevill and young gun Alex Carey.

"Tim was identified as an global player a long time ago and has always been renowned as a very good gloveman, also performing well for us whenever he has represented Australia in any format", selection chairman Trevor Hohns said.

Australia's squad for the first Ashes Test evoked a wide range of emotions as they made six changes from the side that beat Bangladesh in September.

"Hohns added: "(Cameron) is a very talented and tough cricketer, who shows a good temperament for Test cricket".

Ex-Australia spinner Stuart MacGill slammed the Australian selectors, calling them "morons masquerading as mentors".

"He has thoroughly earned and deserves his call-up following some outstanding performances in the early rounds of the JLT Sheffield Shield competition this season". "Times (sic) up gents", he tweeted.

Marsh most recently played for Australia in India this year, where he averaged under 19.

But repeated meetings between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Vladimir Putin have not produced a firm and clear agreement.

Marsh's selection was justified by Hohns, who said he was "playing very well at the moment", a comment he could not attribute to dumped opener Renshaw.

"He went back and scored Shield runs a year ago - he got 600 runs at an average of 60 towards the back end of the Shield summer".

THE shock selection of Tim Paine for the Gabba Test has filled English hearts with optimism.

Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Marsh, Paine, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc are in at the expense of Renshaw, Glenn Maxwell, Hilton Cartwright, Wade, Ashton Agar and Steve O'Keefe.
