Melbourne:

Australia on Sunday retained the 12-member squad that played in the first Test against India for the second match in Sydney starting January 2.

"The same squad of 12 which represented Australia in the first 3 mobile Test match against India at the MCG is selected for the second 3 mobile Test match, which begins at the SCG on January 2," Cricket Australia (CA) said in a statement after a National Selection Panel meeting.

Australia thumped India by 337 runs in the first Test on Saturday to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

With the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) known to assist spin, Chinaman bowler Brad Hogg, who picked up four wickets in the first Test here, is likely to retain his place in the final XI ahead of slinger Shaun Tait.

The Squad: Ricky Ponting (captain), Adam Gilchrist (vice-captain), Stuart Clark, Michael Clarke, Matthew Hayden, Brad Hogg, Michael Hussey, Phil Jaques, Mitchell Johnson, Brett Lee, Andrew Symonds, Shaun Tait.
