Sydney, Aug 19 (ANI): The Australian team is planning to make at least two changes for the last Ashes Test, beginning on Wednesday at the Oval.
According to news.com.au, Usman Khawaja and Jackson Bird will be the latest victims of deckchair shuffling as Australia attempts to avoid a history-making fourth Test loss in England.
While Phil Hughes is the obvious replacement for Usman Khawaja, he has no great claims on the position, the report said.
There is an interesting internal debate taking place over whether reserve wicket-keeper Matthew Wade should play as a specialist batsman, although he would need to bat down the order, prompting another reshuffle, the report added.
Mitchell Starc may be picked instead of Bird since he can bowl a jaffa, can be uncomfortably sharp, can bat, and is only 23, the report further said. (ANI)
