LONDON (Reuters) - Australia dropped fast bowler James Pattinson from a 12-man squad for the second Ashes test against England starting at Lord's on Wednesday, with Josh Hazlewood coming in as likely replacement.

Captain Tim Paine has said he wants to manage his fast bowlers to keep them free from injury, and the weather could be another factor, with rain possible throughout Wednesday.

"We just want to have another quick look at the wicket. We know there's a bit of weather around. We'll make a call on the conditions and what we think is going to be the best combination," he told reporters.

"But also knowing this is a big series and there's going to be a lot of overs bowled."
