Former Australian batsman Justin Langer has supported Shaun Marsh to take the charge up to India’s bowlers when the batsman joins his brother Mitchell Starc in Australia’s team for the 2nd Test which is starting Wednesday.

Langer said Shaun Marsh, who had been on backup for the hurt captain Michael Clarke in Adelaide during the 1st Test which would be better provided to make a blemish on his recent stint at the Test extent. His coming back to the team was established when Michael Clarke was ruled out of the series due to hamstring injury which will be operated by the doctors upon Tuesday.

He made a triumphant start to his One Day International career when he made debut in the West Indies in 2008, and then scored a marvelous ton on Test debut in Sri Lanka. The identification came after the summer, which also justified him his first Cricket Australia agreement and the selectors view him as a top order possibility and he won the title as Western Australia’s Player of the Year. Shaun Marsh is a left-hander batsman who impressed the difficult judges of Mark Waugh and Smith, while in 2003 scoring his maiden 1st class ton. The achievement reached with two consecutive sixes over midwicket off Mark Waugh’s off-spin.

Justin added that He is having a crevice at it and has the belief to play his game, which is to be good and belligerent and take it to the Indian bowlers. Shaun will bat in the middle order, most probably in the fourth position left by Clarke unless stand-in skipper Steve Smith moves up the order. Justin also said that he is been batting five for Western Australia and had great success here over the last two or more of seasons. It suits him so that he can play his natural manner which is to be pragmatic and taking it to the bowlers. He is very confident he can do it in the Test match as well.
