Adam Gilchrist will captain Australia again on Sunday in the tri-series match against Sri Lanka at the WACA after selectors named an unchanged squad of 14 overnight.

The Western Australian wicketkeeper/batsman led the home side to a five-wicket win over Sri Lanka at Adelaide Oval last night, with regular skipper Ricky Ponting rested for the match.

Gilchrist's Western Australian team-mate Mike Hussey will continue as the national team's vice-captain in Ponting's absence.

Australia: Adam Gilchrist (capt), Michael Hussey, Nathan Bracken, Stuart Clark, Michael Clarke, Brett Dorey, Brad Hodge, Brad Hogg, James Hopes, Simon Katich, Brett Lee, Damien Martyn, Glenn McGrath, Andrew Symonds.
