Australia will remind England about Ben Duckett controversy

Wicketkeeper Tim Paine says Australia will be reminding England of the Ben Duckett controversy during this week's third Ashes Test in Perth.

Duckett, 23, was suspended from playing on the England Lions tour and given a fine and a final warning after pouring a drink over James Anderson in a bar.

"I'm sure someone will bring it up at some stage," said Paine.

"But what's happening in their camp off the field has no effect on the way we're going to go about our cricket."

At 2-0 up in the series, Australia will regain the Ashes if they win at the Waca, a ground where England have not tasted victory since 1978. The Test begins at 02:30 GMT on Thursday.

Batsman Duckett, a member of the Lions squad, was due to play against a Cricket Australia XI over the weekend as 10 of the senior team were rested.

However, he was left out after the incident involving Anderson on Thursday, the first night that England's curfew had been lifted.
