Australian striker Marcus Harris will open the innings with David Warner on the Ashes series against England. Cricket Australia (CA) manager George Bailey made the announcement on Thursday. Queensland captain Usman Khawaja was also in the squad, but CA decided to go with Harris. He will be able to play in Pucovsky’s first Test. Pukowski could miss the first Test due to concussion. Harris has done very well for Victoria in the last three years.
Harris scored 100 years against Victoria in the Sheffield Shield against New South Wales this season. “Harry had a few chances in the past and he came in and went out a bit, so we’re giving him a chance,” Bailey told Radio RSN. What we liked about them was their consistency. Good on scoring home goals here. Bailey said the Australian players were close to retaining the No. 5 spot.
Five Ashes matches between Australia and England start in Brisbane from December 8th. Australia kept the Ashes list. The final between the two teams was 2-2 in England in 2019.
