England is all set to announce the squad to tour Australia on Monday despite doubts regarding the fitness of pacer Tim Bresnan.
The team is likely to recall Captain Alastair Cook, batsman Ian Bell and bowlers James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann after the players were rested for the one-day series against Australia.
Meanwhile, Bresnan has been struggling with his fitness after missing out on the fifth Test at The Oval. Bresnan was instrumental in two Ashes wins and will be considered a huge miss if he fails to make it into the team.
Chris Tremlett is also likely to be included in the squad along with Monty Panesar. However, the selectors will have a tough time choosing a backup wicket keeper to Matt Prior with one-day keeper Jos Buttler having minimal experience in the Test matches.
