Shaun Marsh signs for Glamorgan

Cricket: Barmy Army target Australian batsman David Warner - using Sonny Bill Williams

The selectors of Cricket Australia have roped in Glenn Maxwell to the squad as cover for the vice-captain David Warner.

Australia captain Steven Smith has no doubt that Warner will play.

Also among the surprise selections for Australia was wicket keeper Tim Paine, who returns to the Test squad after a seven-year absence.

Vice-captain Warner injured his neck during fielding practice on Tuesday while Marsh is a fresh injury concern pulling up with a stiff back after training on Wednesday.

"Davey's going well", Smith said after Australia's training session on Wednesday.

Ballance's England team-mate Jake Ball, meanwhile, says he is out to prove himself in Australia after returning to full fitness in the nick of time for an Ashes debut.

Director of Cricket at Glamorgan, Hugh Morris, said, "I am very pleased to announce the signing of Shaun Marsh as our overseas signing for the next two years. Hopefully he can keep improving and he'll be 100 percent come 10 o'clock in the morning", the skipper added. "I have to work on my technique a little bit more, probably facing up", he said.

The first Ashes Test starts on November 23 in Brisbane.

"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", said Glamorgan director of cricket Hugh Morris.

Warner admitted 24 hours ago that his main problem was a pretty basic one for any batsman - being able to look in the right direction without too much pain from his neck.

"He said he'll even bat like Shivnarine Chanderpaul if he has to, and face the other way", said Smith.
