The likes of Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh are looking to haunt England to make strong claims for a place in the national side .

"This fixture represents an opportunity to provide Alex with more leadership experience and he will be supported by two experienced vice-captains in Usman Khawaja and Travis Head.

“In terms of the batting line-up, we were eager to give Khawaja, Head and Marcus Harris another opportunity to push their respective cases for Test selection this summer given all three were part of our winter Ashes campaign.

“Joe Burns was an unlucky omission for that tour to the UK and deserves a chance to push his case for Test selection in this tour match.

"Additionally, Will Pucovski and Nic Maddinson have started the season strongly for Victoria and we’re looking forward to giving them an opportunity to perform against a quality international team. Both are exciting batsmen whom we’ve had our eye on for some time.

Steve Smith doesn't believe pressure of captaincy will hinder his batting .

Whilst he's stood up resoundingly in testing times, highlighted by Australia's retention of the Ashes, incumbent skipper Tim Paine's days in the role appear numbered at 35-years-old.Adding to that is the fire he came under for some of his decisions during this year's series in England, particularly his use of DRS during the Aussies' narrow third Test loss.
