London: Fast bowler Damien Fleming may have bowled himself into the Australian Test team this week after helping the tourists to a 176-run victory over Somerset at Taunton.Fleming took two for 38 from 19 overs for match figures of eight for 97, helping to bowl out the host county for 240 in the second innings.With Brett Lee nursing a rib injury, Fleming may get the nod from selectors for the second Ashes Test against England at Lord's, starting on Thursday.Half-centuries from Mike Burns and Matthew Wood held up the Australians as the hosts chased a huge victory target of 417. But from 228 for six, the last four wickets fell for just 12 runs, three of them to the left arm-spin of Aussie Simon Katich.He finished with a career-best three for 21 from four overs, while teammate Colin Miller returned three for 89.
