Cook wants 4-0 as Aussies axe Khawaja and Bird (Oval)

In a major surprise, 23-year-old Tasmania all-rounder James Faulkner comes into the side at the expense of Usman Khawaja, while Mitchell Starc returns to replace Jackson Bird.

Michael Clarke says the team's senior players need to step up if Australia are to stop the rot.

Alastair Cook says the chance to become the first England team to win a home Ashes series 4-0 will be their chief motivation.
