  • Cricket: Barmy Army target Australian batsman David Warner - using Sonny Bill Williams

Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has flown to Brisbane as cover for David Warner if the opening batsman is unable to shake off a neck strain in time for the Ashes opener against England in Brisbane on Thursday.

Australian cricket fans will have been encouraged by the sight of David Warner giving the thumbs up as he arrived for training on the eve of the Ashes.

Marsh himself has acknowledged that he is probably on his last chance in terms of his global Test career, but if he were to be available next summer in some capacity, Yorkshire captain Ballance would be happy to see him return to Headingley.

Explosive opener Warner suffered a neck injury during fielding training, while Marsh - slated to bat at No6 - complained of a stiff back just hours before the Ashes series starts.

A day later, though, his captain said: "Davey's going well".

Warner said of Bancroft: 'He looks like he knows his game very well and he looks pretty complete in the nets.


"They're thinking about it (bringing in a replacement player) at the moment, but Davey is confident he'll be OK. He said he'll be right to go", Smith said.

"Well I think we're about due to win here, aren't we?"

"We hope he can continue improving and be 100 per cent at 10 in the morning".

"Securing my County future for the long term has always appealed to me so I jumped at the opportunity when it came", Marsh said. However, the southpaw seems to have the backing of most of the former Australian players, who have made a case for his inclusion in the squad. He performed well with the bat and scored runs, and he was brilliant in the dressing room as well, helping other guys with their approach to the game.
