Ashes 2017: Shaun Marsh Sustains Injury During Training

Ashes 2017: Shaun Marsh Sustains Injury During Training

After earning a surprise recall in the Australian side for the opening Test of the 2017-18 Ashes at The Gabba in Brisbane from Thursday, Shaun Marsh has now been roped in by English county Glamorgan for the nest two seasons.

In many ways that makes Marsh a direct replacement for the South African Jacques Rudolph, who spent four seasons at Glamorgan as a captain and top-order batsman before retiring at the end of last season.

Australia XI (probable): D Warner, C Bancroft, U Khawaja, Smith (c), P Handscomb, S Marsh, T Paine, M Starc, P Cummins, J Hazlewood, N Lyon. There are no injury concerns in the camp at the moment and all the players were available for selection.

The fact only one player has been called up as cover so far suggests Australia are confident one will be fit for the start of tomorrow's first Ashes Test and Steve Smith, the captain, tried to sound hopeful that Warner will play.

"He'll be okay. It's part and parcel of playing cricket". Guys have injuries now and then.

"It's improved a fair bit over the last 24 hours". Marsh is still concerned regarding his stiff back and following an incomplete practice session before the matchday. "It's a massive game, a massive series, I think we've got a great chance. Hopefully he can keep improving and he'll be 100 per cent come 10 o'clock in the morning", Smith added.

"He said he'll even bat like Shivnarine Chanderpaul if he has to and face the other way, so I think he'll be alright", Smith said, according to cricket.com.au.

GARY BALLANCE would welcome the return to Headingley of Ashes rival Shaun Marsh if Yorkshire decide to ask the Australian back for a second spell.

Warner, Australia's vice-captain, inspected the pitch at Brisbane, where the hosts have not lost in 28 matches and where England have only won twice.
