Mitch Marsh has been declared fit for selection for Wednesday’s first Test against Pakistan but Australia say it will keep James Faulkner on standby.
Marsh, who strained a hamstring in late September, looked fit against Pakistan A when bowling seven overs in Sharjah.
The 22-year-old scored a duck and 35 in the match and the West Australian could make his test debut in Dubai on Wednesday.
Left-arm quick Faulkner was kept on standby as cover for Marsh for the four-day game.
Faulkner also played in the tour match, claiming 0 for 57 from eight overs in Pakistan A’s first innings, before making a duck with the bat.
Marsh’s performance with the bat and ball have the all-rounder in the frame to play on Wednesday, however Faulkner will be staying on during the two-Test series on standby.
