"We wanted to bring in someone who is experienced at worldwide level, can bat at the top of the order and can play in all three formats of the game, and Shaun ticks all of those boxes for us".

Warner had a 30-minute net session at the Gabba on Wednesday, facing some throwdowns from assistant coach John Davison.

After earning a surprise recall in the Australian side for the opening Test of the 2017-18 Ashes at The Gabba in Brisbane from Thursday, Shaun Marsh has now been roped in by English county Glamorgan for the nest two seasons.

Shaun Marsh's inclusion in the Test squad ahead of young Matthew Renshaw and the likes of Jake Weatherald and all-rounders Hilton Cartwright and Mitchell Marsh has drawn plenty of criticism from plenty of fans.

"Davey is going well".

"He's just had a hit. he's very confident, and he says he's good to go".

Should Warner particularly be unable to play in Brisbane, it would be a monumental blow for the hosts, who rely heavily on a quick start from him - as well as Smith's middle-order runs. Guys have injuries now and then.

Australia captain Steven Smith has no doubt that Warner will play. You have little niggles and he's confident that he'll be okay.

The absence of Warner would be a huge blow to Australia at their Gabba "fortress", where they have not lost to England since 1986/87 eight tours ago.

"He said he'll even bat like Shivnarine Chanderpaul, if he has to". "But I don't think we need to change our plans on anything".

"It's the reason why Australia play the first Test of a series here all the time".

Shortly before the announcement that Maxwell is to join the squad, Smith confirmed as-yet-unnamed cover for Warner was on its way.
