Summary

Australia are pondering a radical change to their batting line-up for the Old Trafford Test, considering the inclusion of Mitchell Marsh at the expense of Matthew Wade to increase their complement of right-handers.The around-the-wicket line from Stuart Broad and Jofra Archer in particular has been a source of considerable angst for the tourists, while the most productive Australian batsmen by far have been Steven Smith and his stand-in Marnus Labuschagne.In order to fit both Smith and Labuschagne into the team there will likely be a change at the top of the order, but the selection chairman Trevor Hohns has hinted that Wade may be omitted to allow Marsh to play as a third right-hander in the top six - the allrounder made 74 batting at No. 3 in Derby.ALSO READ: Starc polishes off Derbyshire to push case"He played very well that innings he made a hundred," Hohns said of Wade. We are also mindful of the England bowlers have bowled very well to our guys, particularly our left-handers, so we will certainly look at that as well."Labuschagne is certain of retaining his place thanks to a trio of half-centuries after substituting for Smith at Lord's and Headingley.
