Australia coach Justin Langer feels Shaun Marsh and Usman Khawaja, who are more accustomed to roles higher up, are perfectly capable of adapting their games to suit demands of middle-order batting. Both Marsh and Khawaja – batting at five and six – suffered untimely dismissals in the game against Pakistan, which ultimately contributed in Australia slipping from 147/0 to 307 all out.

“[Marsh] is an unbelievable T20 cricketer - if you look at his T20 record, it’s unbelievable. And I thought Uzzie [Khawaja] played really well, like he adapted against West Indies the other day. It was a really different role for him. But I thought he did a good job,” Langer said. “Both of them got out - for them and for us - just at the wrong time. They both showed some good signs.
