CWC: Australia bring in Wade, Marsh as cover

Mitchell Marsh

"The ICC received the relevant paperwork this morning (July 10) from Cricket Australia to apply to replace Khawaja who has sustained a hamstring injury which has ruled him out of further participation in the event", the ICC said in a statement.

It is peculiar that the Aussies are yet to officially make a squad change, particularly given they substituted Pete Handscomb in just three hours after Shaun Marsh suffered a broken arm in the nets last Thursday.

"The injury setbacks to Usman Khawaja (hamstring) and Marcus Stoinis (side) suffered in Australia's dramatic loss to South Africa in Manchester has seen the selectors draft in Wade and Marsh".

Coach Justin Langer instructed all players and staff to remove their socks and shoes for the earthing exercise, which has been used by NSW State of Origin coach Brad Fittler.

Stoinis is also a major doubt for the semi-final as he struggles with a side complaint, an issue which sidelined the all-rounder for two group stage matches, prompting Australia to turn to Wade and Marsh.

In the photo, Australia's all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, wicket-keeper batsman Matthew Wade and spinner Adam Zampa can be seen standing on the field during practice. "Matthew Wade has played a lot of worldwide cricket if he comes in", Langer said. "So he'll definitely play", he added.

"It's a nice thing to do". We have played well for the past four years, we're ranked number one.

He said: "The blueprint the last time we played England was to take early wickets". It didn't just affect our cricket, it affected our country, so there wasn't too much to be relaxed about.

"He'll have a scan tomorrow and if we need a replacement - and I think we will - but until you get the definitive scan it's hard to know". "He was so unlucky not to be in the initial squad after what he'd done to help us get to that point".

"We'll have a good look at that (on Tuesday) when he bowls - not only will it be on the pace and the Global Positioning System numbers, but also his execution".

"Our momentum, even though it got halted a little bit, we're training our backsides off, we'll prepare well, we'll have elite professionalism and make sure that, come Thursday, we're firing".

Not many would have put their money on Australia as recently as four months ago but Aaron Finch and his team have made a phenomenal comeback that began with a rare series win in India in March. It's pretty uncommon, so I'm looking forward to seeing how he goes.

Satellite subscription host broadcaster Sky has said it will allow the final to be shown on free-to-air television in Britain - but only if England are involved in the showpiece match.
