While the inclusion of veteran cricketers David Warner and Steve Smith swelled the strength of the Australian squad but it also disturbed the previously installed team combination. As a matter of fact, top-order batsman Shaun Marsh, who did a great job in Warner and Smith’s absence, would find it hard to make it to the playing eleven.
Nevertheless, the 35-year old isn’t fazed with his competition with Usman Khawaja. Instead, he relished the quality within the Australian ranks as Marsh aims success in the 10-team tournament. Moreover, the proficient batsman revealed his openness to bat at any required position in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament.
Scoring an unbeaten half-century in Australia’s victory against West Indies in an unofficial fixture, the Western Australia born was delighted to be in good shape for the mega-event starting from May 30 in England and Wales.
“I’m not really sure. I’d like to think I’m nice and flexible. I’ve batted from one to six throughout my career. I’m just going to try and enjoy the next two practice games and spend more time out in the middle and see what happens,” Marsh added when questioned about his place and competition with Usman Khawaja.
