Steve Smith has confirmed the XI for the first Ashes Test at the Gabba.

Chadd Sayers and Jackson Bird are the two who will miss out from Australia's original 13-man squad.

Smith said vice-captain David Warner, who hurt his neck at a training session on Tuesday, should be right to play, but a player could be called up as back-up.

"He says he'll be right to go," he said.

"They're thinking about (bringing in cover) at the moment, but as I said, Davey's confident he'll be okay. I'm not sure who (it will be) at this stage."

Australia's XI:

David Warner, Cameron Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith (c), Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Tim Paine, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood
