Nevill should bat above Mitchell in Australian team: Mark Waugh

Madrid, Dec 3 (IANS) Australian batting great and present selector Mark Waugh supports the idea of moving Peter Nevill ahead of Mitchell Marsh in the batting order for the first Test here against the West Indies which starts from December 10.

Waugh, part of Australia’s four-man selection panel, said Marsh coming down the order could help him play with more freedom.

“If you bat him (Marsh) at seven it might just free him up a little bit. He won’t have that pressure of justifying his spot as a batsman at No.6 so I think he’ll free up a bit,” Waugh was quoted as saying by on Thursday.

“And I think Nevill is good enough to bat at six. His technique is excellent. I don’t think a keeper has to bat seven. It’s not in the rule book, is it?”
