  Mitch Marsh out for up to six weeks after punching wall Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh says he will not be punching any more walls after learning a "good lesson" when breaking a finger.The embarrassing incident followed his dismissal for Western Australia against Tasmania on Sunday.

Josh Hazlewood believes Mitchell Starc has all the right qualities to earn a test re-call after only featuring in one Test in the 2019 Ashes series.

Starc was a controversial omission from the first Test against England and was only selected for the fourth Test at Old Trafford.

It left many former Australian cricketers in shock, wondering how Australia could leave one of their best bowlers out of the side.

Sheffield Shield: Will Pucovski and Michael Neser press their claims for test selection

  Sheffield Shield: Will Pucovski and Michael Neser press their claims for test selection The first day of round two of the Sheffield Shield action has witnessed players on the fringe of Australian selection press their claim for a test berth as we get closer to the opening match against Pakistan starting November 21. Michael Neser continued his great form with the ball, securing a five-wicket hall for Queensland against South Australia.A near-full strength NSW side showed their class to restrict a valiant Tasmanian batting lineup.

Josh Hazlewood (5/63) was the best bowler taking 5 wickets on debut. Australia's innings started after lunch and Warner started quickly but top-edged a ball to slip This was the fifth time in Test match history that a team had lost inside four days after making over 400 runs in the first innings of the match.

paceman Mitchell Starc bowled what is believed to be the fastest delivery in Test cricket history. Starc joined an exclusive club with a sizzling delivery, with the fourth ball of his 21st over to Ross officially been recorded with deliveries at more than 160 kpm, but none of those were in Test cricket .

Starc has not let it get to him, bouncing back in the Sheffield Shield with an impressive ten-wicket haul against Tasmania. 

It's a quality that Hazlewood believes has his NSW teammate primed for a big summer as part of the Australian team.

"[I've] played a lot of cricket with Starcy over the years," Hazlewood said.

"[He] didn't get much of an opportunity in the Ashes.

"We know how good he is, his record is phenomenal and we saw that during the week at Drummoyne Oval."

Starc had match figures of 10/60 against Tasmania in the Sheffield Shield in a fearsome display of fast bowling.

Hazlewood believes that Starc's versatility on slower wickets is something that Australia could benefit from.

Warner fails to fire again as NSW stumble

Australia paceman Josh Hazlewood believes the team should work on its ODI game during test series to prevent a repeat of the white ball hammering Maybe it's a session here or there around test cricket you can work on those skills with the white ball . We can learn and do those things differently

" Cricket is a product and you have to sell it to people," he told Test Match Special. Some who are set to play in Adelaide - Australia trio Adam Voges, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc - have raised concerns about the pink ball , with Australian Cricketers ' Association boss Greg Dyer going as far as

"On a low, slow wicket that didn't offer too much, he's a class above," Hazlewood said.

"On those sorts of tracks, he gets something out of it when no one else can."

Hazlewood took 20 wickets at an average of 21.85 across the four matches he played in this year's Ashes series.

He also knows better than most Australia's fast-bowling rotation, not being selected for the 2019 World Cup and not being picked for the first Test of the Ashes.

"It's always tough [being selected] and that's how you want it to be," Hazlewood said.

"We want six or seven quicks fighting for three spots and I think that brings out the best in any bowler.

"I think we saw in England having three extra quicks there, doing training, bowling in the nets and being in view all the time to selectors...it builds the pressure up all the time."

Many have questioned the rotation of Australia's fast bowlers, but Hazlewood knows that it's an important question to have around Test cricket.

With Starc being injury prone, Hazlewood has had to shoulder a lot of extra responsibility at times and he has shown that he relishes the baggage. Having said that , the first tour of England for any visiting fast bowler is a challenge and to be fair to Hazlewood , he was still a rookie in international cricket .

"I think at certain times you've got to play it by ear in Test cricket," he said.

"You can’t predict how much we’re gonna bowl.

"If we bowl back-to-back Tests where we get through 50 overs then you weigh up the decision of what to do.

"It’s conversations with the coach, selectors, physios and the players.

"It’s great to have it that way and put our opinion across of how we feel.

"We’ve got to be truthful every time, whether you’re not good to go or you are, that’s the trust they put in us."

One Australian player who is putting plenty of pressure on Hazlewood and Starc is Queensland's Michael Neser.

After touring as part of the Ashes squad, Neser is the top wicket-taker through two rounds of Sheffield Shield action, picking up 12 wickets at an average of 15.91.

He's played two ODI's for Australia but Hazlewood believes Neser is doing all the right things to finally earn a baggy green.

"Neser is a great bowler, he’s a great all-round cricketer, to be honest," Hazlewood said.

"In pretty much every format he’s always putting performances on the board, he’s a great fellow as well.

Australian bowling coach David Saker confirmed Starc and Josh Hazlewood would also play first- class cricket before the series with England. “Whether the fast bowlers play all three of those we’ll wait and see,” Saker said. “Three Shield games to shape the Australian team – it’s going to be good

"He was awesome to have around the group in the Ashes, even though he didn’t play, he stayed up for the whole tour and he was phenomenal.

Selectors have just under a month to figure out their best bowling line-up, with Australia's first Test of the Summer against Pakistan starting on November 21 at the Gabba.
