Australia call-up Marsh after Stoinis's side strain

The allrounder can only be replaced by Marsh if he is ruled out for the entire six-week tournament.

"Stoinis has a bit of a side strain", Finch told reporters in Taunton on Tuesday.

Australia's more immediate problem is what they do with Stoinis' spot for Wednesday's game against Pakistan in Taunton. Steve Smith would remain the go-to batsman for Finch as the batsman has two half-centuries in as many games.

Some fans also gave suggestions and some were rude as they roasted the Pakistan captain. "So hopefully we'll do very well against them tomorrow", he said.

"I don't think Pakistani people will be doing something like that".

"But as I said, he hit the field too often early on and wasn't able to rotate as he would have liked". "But definitely if the match is shortened, definitely plan changes", Sarfaraz added.

"We wanted to have left-hand, right-hand with those spinners and we thought Steven plays spin as well as anybody, so that was the only reason", Ponting said.

"If it's past 35 overs, you're probably not going to do it [bat Khawaja at four], Maxwell is going every day of the week after that".
