Strong Australia A side to face England
Australia's Usman Khawaja during play on the fourth day of the third Ashes Test against England at Old Trafford in Manchester on August 4, 2013
The Pakistan-born batsman has another chance to stake his claim after struggling in the Ashes series in England earlier this year before re-discovering his touch in domestic one-day matches.
New South Wales all-rounder Moises Henriques skippers the XI with spin bowling all-rounder Glenn Maxwell as his vice-captain.
"We have struck a balance in what we think is the appropriate Australia A team to face England, while ensuring individuals have a solid preparation and chance to impress," said Australian selector John Inverarity.
"All of the top six batsmen have shown good form of late and will be looking to impress against a quality opposition as they strive for higher honours."
Shaun Marsh, who scored a century on his Test debut for Australia in 2011, will also be looking to impress in the four-day match starting on November 6.
Ali De Winter will coach the side with former England batsman Graeme Hick as his assistant.
England face a second string Western Australia chairman's XI in their opening tour match from Thursday in Perth due to clashes with domestic fixtures.
