Smith gives Warner green light, Marsh in doubt

Glenn Maxwell has played seven Tests for Australia

Australia have added Glenn Maxwell to their squad as cover for David Warner - even though the opener remains confident he will be fit to face England in the first Ashes Test.

Australia captain Smith fronted the media in Brisbane afterwards and revealed selectors were considering a replacement player if Warner was unable to prove his fitness before day one on Thursday.

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.

Maxwell was said to have flown up as insurance, but just for Warner, who has a neck problem he sustained at training on Tuesday. He had a hit just before and he's very confident.

"They're thinking about it at the moment", he said. "He said he'll be right to go", Smith said. It's part and parcel of playing cricket. Guys have injuries every now and then and have little niggles.

"There is a lot of exciting young talent at the club, and hopefully I can put in some good performances so we can bring some silverware to Wales". "We hope he can continue improving and be 100% at 10 o'clock in the morning".

"It's improved a fair bit over the last 24 hours". He even joked that Warner might even adopt West Indies legend Shivnarine Chanderpaul's unusual stance if need be.

Shaun Marsh, who has won a surprise recall by Australia for the start of the Ashes series, has been named as Glamorgan's overseas player for the next two seasons.

All indications from the tourists' camp are that Ball will play in Brisbane, preferred to the uncapped Craig Overton as England's fourth seamer.
