Australia facing opening pair dilemma

Australia facing opening pair dilemma

After the return of David Warner into the national team, Australia's head coach, Justin Langer has admitted that he is facing a top-order selection dilemma.

The return of Steve Smith and Warner from their year-long bans for ball-tampering has left the selectors in a quandary, with openers Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja building a formidable partnership in recent ODIs.

However, Langer believes it is a welcome problem to have all three potential openers firing. “We have amazing flexibility now. Usman and Finchy have done an incredible job opening the batting. David and Finchy have done a great job in the past doing it,” he said.
