Shaun Marsh signs for Glamorgan

While Marsh looks a good bet to make the Australian starting line-up at the Gabba in Brisbane on Thursday, Ballance himself looks destined to be left on the sidelines with James Vince and Dawid Malan ahead of him in the pecking order in the middle of the line-up.

Shaun Marsh has joined David Warner on the injury-watch list after pulling up from training with a stiff back on the eve of the first Ashes Test in Brisbane.

But the 27-year-old insisted he would be ready for the moment when he hopes he is called upon by England - whenever that might be in the coming weeks.

"Davey's going well", Smith said after Australia's training session on Wednesday. He's very confident and he says he'll be right to go.

Nonetheless, shortly after captain Steve Smith relayed that update at his pre-match press conference, Cricket Australia announced they were calling up batting all-rounder Maxwell.

"As I said, Davey's confident that he'll be OK", Smith said.

It emerged on Wednesday afternoon that Marsh, who was slated to open if Warner wasn't fit enough to feature in the first Test, was also nursing a niggle. It's part and parcel of playing cricket.

"It's improved a fair bit over the last 24 hours. Hopefully he can keep improving and he'll be 100 per cent come 10 o'clock in the morning", Smith added. He even joked that Warner might even adopt West Indies legend Shivnarine Chanderpaul's unusual stance if need be.

However, he is yet to play a Test match on home soil, and was overlooked in the original squad as the selectors instead opted for Marsh as the No. 6 batsman.

All indications from the tourists' camp are that Ball will play in Brisbane, preferred to the uncapped Craig Overton as England's fourth seamer.
