Mass axings: Australia name 6 new faces for Adelaide Test

Australian selectors have made drastic changes with 6 new names in the 12-man squad for the 3rd Test to take on South Africa, after they lost 5 Tests in a row.

The new players are: Jackson Bird, Peter Handscomb, Nic Maddinson, Matt Renshaw, Chadd Sayers and Matthew Wade which includes 4 debutants, the most Australia has named since the Packer defections in 1978.

Joe Burns, Callum Ferguson, Mitchell Marsh, Joe Mennie, Peter Nevill and Adam Voges are the players axed thanks to a brutal shake-up of Australia's Test team announced by new Chief Selector, Trevor Hohns.
