Australia retains same XI for 2nd Ashes test

Adelaide - Captain Michael Clarke says Australia will stick with its winning combination for the second Ashes test against England.
Australia won the series-opening match by 381 runs in Brisbane — its first win in 10 tests — and has retained the same XI, with Clarke overcoming a mild ankle injury and saying he's "100 percent" ready to play starting Thursday at Adelaide.
Clarke batted in the nets and did fielding drills on Wednesday, a day after missing practice to rest his right ankle.
England has won the last three Ashes series, including a 3-1 win on its last tour to Australia in 2010-11.
