Veteran pace spearhead Jimmy Anderson was Tuesday left out of England's 12-man squad for the opening Ashes Test against Australia, while Haseeb Hameed won the race to open the innings ahead of Zak Crawley.

The 39-year-old Anderson, Test cricket's most prolific fast bowler with 632 wickets, reportedly has a minor calf problem, although England did not give a reason for his omission.

England 12-man squad for first Ashes Test in Brisbane on Wednesday: Joe Root (capt), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Haseeb Hameed, Jack Leach, Dawid Malan, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
