SYDNEY (AP) — Batsman Adam Voges has a lower back injury and won't play in the Australia Invitational XI against England beginning Wednesday.

Cricket Australia said in a statement Tuesday that Voges will be replaced by 20-year-old New South Wales batsman Kurtis Patterson.

The four-day match at the Sydney Cricket Ground is England's last warm-up ahead of the first Ashes test beginning Nov. 21 in Brisbane.


Revised Australia XI: Ed Cowan, Aaron Finch, Callum Ferguson, Kurtis Patterson, Ben Rohrer, Ryan Carters, Peter Nevill, Stephen O'Keefe, Josh Lalor, Chris Tremain, Nic Bills.
