Ashes: Sam Curran, Chris Woakes in England's playing XI for 5th Test

Kennington, Sep 11 (UNI) England made two changes to their side for the fifth Ashes Test starting at Kia Oval on Thursday.
Sam Curran and Chris Woakes were named in the team, with Jason Roy and Craig Overton missing out from the XI that played the fourth Test at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Ben Stokes will play as a specialist batsman due to a shoulder injury.
"It’s always tough to leave guys out, but Stokesy obviously picked up a shoulder injury in the last game and won't be able to bowl the overs we normally expect him to," Root said at a press conference.
"He might be able to bowl a couple of overs here and there, but his batting, as this series has shown, is a massive part of our side and he rightly deserves to be in this team as just a batter, and a top-four batter," Root added.
Australia, who have retained the Ashes after taking a 2-1 lead by winning in Manchester, also made one change with all rounder Mitch Marsh coming in to replace Travis Head.
"The reason Travis isn’t playing is because we felt we needed extra bowling after a long series," Australia skipper Tim Paine said.
England are trying to avoid a home series defeat by Australia for the first time since 2001.
Australia squad: David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Mitch Marsh, Matthew Wade, Tim Paine (c, wk), Pat Cummins, Peter Siddle, Mitch Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood
England's squad: Joe Root (c), Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes OUT: Jason Roy, Craig Overton IN: Sam Curran, Chris Woakes
