Australia welcome back fast bowler Mitchell Johnson for Sunday's tri-series final against England in Perth.
Refreshed and ready to go, paceman Mitchell Johnson will spearhead Australia's attack against England in the one-day international tri-series final on Sunday.
Australia and England will resume hostilities at the WACA after the latter reached the final courtesy of a three-wicket win over India on Friday.
And the hosts will be boosted by the return of Johnson, who has been rested by coach Darren Lehmann.
Johnson was rested for all four tri-series matches following the Boxing Day Test against India.
But the refreshed 33-year-old is now set to make his comeback on home soil in Perth as Australia - unbeaten in the four ODI matches - seek to gain an edge over England ahead of the upcoming Cricket World Cup, which the two nations will open at the MCG on February 14.
"I needed a fair bit of a rest," said Johnson, who claimed 13 wickets in three Test matches against India.
"It'd been a big 12 months personally, but for all the bowlers as well. The UAE [tour against Pakistan] was quite tough. We bowled a lot of overs there and then, coming into Australia, the wickets were a little bit flatter than we expected. There were a lot of runs scored through the Test series.
"The body now is fully recovered and ready to go. I'm feeling rested. I don't have any soreness there anymore, so I'm feeling pretty good.
"It's a big match to come into, but I'm as prepared as I can be. I've played a fair bit of one-day cricket now and I know what to expect. I'm looking forward to getting out there."
While Johnson will return, Australia are set to be without all-rounder Shane Watson, who is still nursing a hamstring injury.
"I don't think he'll play, to be perfectly honest," Lehmann told Perth radio station 6PR.
"Obviously Mitch Marsh will play for us I would think. We want to make sure everyone is 100 per cent before they play for Australia. If he's not quite right we won't play him."
Australia and England have already met twice in the tri-series, with the hosts emerging three-wicket victors in both matches.
Now having earned a rematch in Perth, James Taylor and his English team-mates are keen for revenge.
"[We are] delighted to get into that final on Sunday. It is going to be a special day. Any final is a great day and to play Australia on their home turf is going to be a great day," said Taylor.
"Hopefully we can string all three facets together, put in a top performance and come out with a win."
