(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOE ROOT, ENGLAND CAPTAIN ON ARCHER/WOAKES DECISION SAYING: "Yes, I mean Jofra (Archer) is obviously coming back from quite serious injury.

We looked at the conditions and we made a decision about what we thought was best to take 20 wickets here and this also allows him time to get absolutely ready and fit and make sure that he's got his workloads up and ready to go for later on in the series if he needs to make an impact." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TIM PAINE, AUSTRALIA CAPTAIN ON TEAM'S BEHAVIOUR, SAYING: "Again, I've spoken a lot about this in the last twelve months.

We're going to play competitive test match cricket like every other nation does.

Our guys understand what's expected of them.

We're role models not just for Australian people but all around the world and there's been a quote going around our changing rooms this week from Winston Churchill actually and that's that 'behaviour doesn't lie'.

So, we can talk all we like about how we're going to behave.

Ultimately you guys will see how we behave and you'll be able to judge for yourself." 5.

PAINE AND ROOT POSING WITH ASHES VASE STORY: England pace bowler Jofra Archer has been omitted from the side for the first Ashes test against Australia starting at Edgbaston on Thursday (August 1) with Chris Woakes keeping his place after his stunning display against Ireland last week.

Barbados-born Archer, who made a huge impact in England's triumphant World Cup campaign, taking 20 wickets, is yet to play a test and has been suffering with a side strain.

Fellow paceman Olly Stone also misses out as does Sam Curran from the original 14-man squad.

Record test wicket taker James Anderson returns after recovering from a calf strain and will lead the attack with usual strike partner Stuart Broad.

All-rounder Ben Stokes is back to bolster the batting and bowling units after being rested for the Ireland match while Moeen Ali is the specialist spinner.

While England's bowling has a familiar look, the top order batting remains a worry with openers Rory Burns, Jason Roy and Joe Denly, who has dropped down to number four to allow Root to come in at three, having only 11 test caps between them.

Root says his elevation to a spot he has previously been reluctant to occupy was entirely his decision.

The return to the side of Jos Buttler to the middle order means wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow, who made a pair against Ireland, drops down to seven.
