Name: James Faulkner
International Team: Australia
Domestic Team: Pune Warriors
Bowling Style: Left arm fast medium
Batting Style: Right-hand
James Faulkner is one of three Australia squad members born in the 1990s, and there's definitely a 'generation-next' feel about the exciting all-rounder.
With 34 first-class games under his belt for Tasmania, Faulkner is the only player in the touring party not to have played Test cricket yet, but if his recent form is anything to go by, that may not be the case for much longer.
The 23-year-old put in some impressive showings in an otherwise disappointing ICC Champions Trophy campaign for Australia, most notably against England when he took 2-48 and belted 54 not out.
That came off the back of a strong finish to the Sheffield Shield season, including a man-of-the-match performance in the final that featured match figures of 4-60 to go with innings of 46 and 89.
Faulkner's left-arm bowling is what initially caught the selectors' eye, leading to call-ups for Australia's one-day and T20 sides.
Despite his tender age, the Tasmanian isn't afraid to show plenty of aggression against some of world cricket's biggest names.
Chris Gayle can definitely vouch for this, after Faulkner was fined for giving the West Indies superstar a foul-mouthed send off during an ODI in Canberra earlier this year.
Faulkner's aggression is something the man himself views as an asset, although he may not be given the opportunity to show that aggression during the Ashes, with Shane Watson likely to fill the all-rounder's role, but if he does you get the feeling he'll fit right in at Test level.
