Part of the England Lions squad, Duckett was due to play against the Cricket Australia XI team, but has been suspended pending a disciplinary hearing.

"Duckett was meant to be opening the batting for England in the two-day tour match against a Cricket Australia XI at Richardson Park that started on Saturday", cricket.com.au reported.

Mark Wood and Jake Ball took the new ball for England but neither was able to earn a breakthrough or show anything to suggest they should replace Craig Overton in the Test XI.

Squad for practice game: Moeen Ali (c), Jake Ball, Gary Ballance, Mason Crane, Tom Curran, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes (wk), Keaton Jennings, Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Liam Livingstone, Mark Wood.

Tom Curran starred for the England XI hitting 77 not out for the tourists before trapping Josh Phillipe leg before for his side's only wicket of the day.

Playing as captain, Moeen is the only member of the England XI to have played in the Ashes and won't bowl in the tour match as he recovers from a split finger he suffered in the first Test at the Gabba.
