Moeen Ali will get some further match practice in Perth this week
Moeen Ali is to captain an England XI in a two-day warm-up match ahead of the third Ashes test in Perth.
The 30-year-old all-rounder is the only member of the team beaten in the second Test who will line up in the match against a Cricket Australia XI.
Off-spinner Ali will get the chance to bowl some more overs in the contest, having taken just two wickets in the Ashes series to date, after he was affected by a finger injury in Brisbane.
Five members of the Test squad who have yet to feature in the Ashes will join Ali in the side, in the shape of Gary Ballance, wicket-keeper Ben Foakes, Mason Crane, Jake Ball and Tom Curran.
The rest of the team will be comprised of members of the England Lions squad, with the likes of paceman Mark Wood possible contenders to join the Ashes squad if they impress.
