The two-day match against the England Lions in Northampton represents the last chance to earn a spot in the final Ashes Test at The Oval. Australia will play the tour match and will be led by all-rounder Shane Watson. Skipper Michael Clarke will not take part on the match.

Batsman Phil Hughes is one of the players who is looking to impress the selectors. Hughes feels he's in good shape and hopes to get a chance for the fifth Test at The Oval.

Coach Darren Lehmann has already hinted that the performances of the players during selection could dictate selection.
