Shaun Marsh could miss first Ashes Test

Shaun Marsh is in doubt for the first Ashes Test in Brisbane

Warner has a stiff neck after injuring it at training, while Marsh has been dealing with a back issue.

Shaun Marsh simply can't seem to catch a break.

Right-hand batsman Glenn Maxwell has been called into the Australia squad as cover for injury-hit David Warner for the first Ashes Test in Brisbane.

Warner, Australia's vice-captain, inspected the pitch at Brisbane, where the hosts have not lost in 28 matches and where England have only won twice.

A day later, though, his captain said: "Davey's going well".

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".

"They're thinking about it at the moment", he said.

"Jake has bowled well when he's had opportunities on the tour and the way he goes about things on these surfaces could be really challenging for the Australians", skipper Joe Root said. Marsh comes with a proven reputation in domestic cricket and having been a three-time Big Bash victor with the Perth Scorchers, he is sure to lend a lot of expertise to Glamorgan, for whom he played in the 2012 T20 campaign too. Guys have injuries every now and then and have little niggles. "We hope he can continue improving and be 100% at 10 o'clock in the morning".

But with news of Marsh's injury, the 29-year-old could be in line to play his first home Test match.

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 even joked that Warner might even adopt West Indies legend Shivnarine Chanderpaul's unusual stance if need be.
