Despite the heavy SCG loss, Marsh insisted that Australia would take an unchanged team into their second game.

The attack will be further strengthened by Marsh being able to bowl in a match for the first time in almost two months after being sent home from a one-day series against Zimbabwe in Townsville with an ankle injury.

“I love appearing as an all-rounder and making sure I’m in the game the whole time, I’m feeling great,” Marsh said. “And hopefully, I can contribute a few big scores at the top and maybe chip in with a few wickets.”

If Australia’s most recent match in Perth is any guide, the fast bowlers may not have things all their own way. In a T20 match a fortnight ago, Australia scored 200 chasing England’s 208.

It was the first international match in Perth for almost three years due to COVID-related travel restrictions.

Despite this absence of cricket, Marsh insists that Perth Stadium will give Australia a distinct home-ground advantage.

“It’s a great place to play cricket. It’s similar to the Gabba,” Marsh said. “I love the dimensions of the ground and we play very well here.”

Likely Australian team: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Mitch Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Tim David, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.
