The 381-run, four-day demolition of England in the first Test in Brisbane was Australia's first Test victory since they defeated Sri Lanka in January.
And the selectors have decided to stick with a winning formula with the same XI who were on duty at The Gabba - plus 12th man James Faulkner - retained for Adelaide, although they could still draft in another player if conditions dictate.
Australia have had a habit of chopping and changing their pace attack in recent years but captain Michael Clarke has no worries about Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle and Ryan Harris backing up with the second Test not starting until December 5.
"I don't think it's a big concern for this Test match because there's a 10-day break," said captain Michael Clarke.
"The next two Test matches are going to be tough but fortunately there's a break from now until Adelaide to freshen up.
"If you can knock over a team earlier it's always a benefit because it gives the bowlers a rest."
