Brisbane - Fast bowlers Doug Bollinger and Ryan Harris have been called into the Australia squad for this week's second Ashes Test against England in Adelaide, captain Ricky Ponting said on Monday.

The Australia skipper was disappointed with how his bowling unit had performed as England scored 517-1 declared in their second innings in the first Test in Brisbane, which ended in a draw on Monday.

Bollinger, who is returning from a side strain, was left out of the team for the first Test in favour of Peter Siddle, who took a hattrick and six wickets in England's first innings.

Harris, who is also on the comeback trail after knee surgery, was included in the original 17-man Australia squad for the first test.

Australia squad for second Test - Simon Katich, Shane Watson, Ricky Ponting (captain), Michael Clarke, Mike Hussey, Marcus North, Brad Haddin, Mitchell Johnson, Ben Hilfenhaus, Peter Siddle, Doug Bollinger, Ryan Harris, Xavier Doherty.
