Mitch Marsh Has Been Dropped For The Adelaide Test Against India

Dec 5, 2018


Australian vice-captain Mitch Marsh has been left out of the team to take on India in the First Test in Adelaide this week.

Captain Tim Paine said on Wednesday:

“We know he’s good enough to be an all-rounder at Test level, he just hasn’t put it together consistently.

“We think going back and getting another Shield game in before the Big Bash break will be good for him.

“They’re fresh, they’re fine to go. If they need to bowl big overs, they’re comfortable.”

Here’s the Australia XI: Marcus Harris, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head, Tim Paine (c), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood.
