Matthew Wade returns to middle order as Australia ‘roll through different scenarios’


Mitchell Marsh’s recent success and the possible return of Steven Smith have added to the crush at the top of the order

The game of musical chairs in Australia’s T20I batting line-up will continue, with Matthew Wade set to play in the middle order during the series in Bangladesh, with that now being his likely position at the World Cup in October.
It is a change of plans from what was spoken about ahead of the West Indies series last month, when Wade said he expected to bat in the top three alongside Aaron Finch and David Warner. However, Mitchell Marsh‘s success in the West Indies, where he made 219 runs batting at No. 3, and the potential return of Steven Smith from injury have added to the crush for top-order spots, meaning that Wade, who will lead the side in the absence of Finch, will probably have to find a berth lower down.
