Australia name Mitchell Marsh in squad ahead of Perth Test

Australia name Mitchell Marsh in squad ahead of Perth Test”

With Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins leading the line, Sayers was deemed surplus to requirements as Marsh could very well play the role of the fourth pacer if needed and could be handy with the bat as well. The all-rounder was ruled out of the tournament after suffering a shoulder injury and played a part in only two Tests.

All-rounder Mitchell Marsh was added to Australia's 13-man squad on Thursday for next week's third Test in Perth as the home side bid to clinch the Ashes.

Marsh has impressed selectors with his recent form in the Sheffield Shield for West Australia - 402 runs at 44, including an innings of 141.

With Shaun Marsh scoring a ton in Adelaide, Mitchell Marsh find a spot in the team at Perth? The hosts would be looking to wrap up the Ashes in the third test itself, which starts on 14 December in Perth. So he said to the selectors "you've made a good decision to take me up there".

Australia squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner (vc), Cameron Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Tim Paine (wk), Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Jackson Bird.

Mitch Marsh said it was "always special playing for Australia with Shaun".

"When you're playing cricket for Australia there are a lot of distractions outside the inner sanctum but (Shaun) is just really concentrating right now and it's great to see".

"I certainly lost a bit of confidence", he said.

"From my experiences previous year I wasn't performing at my best, and in the game of cricket you can get pretty down on yourself and I've just come to realise it's a game. Probably more [change] on the mental side, being able to deal with the pressures of batting for long periods of time is something I really wanted to work on and I feel like my game is in a really good place right now". "I don't think he has". As an all-rounder in the Australian team with our attack, I'm obviously not going to be bowling 30 to 40 overs a game. "I'm feeling really confident in my game at the moment so it's a great feeling", he said.
