Lehmann still undecided about Aussie XI


Australia coach Darren Lehmann has admitted that he still undecided on the composition of his side ahead of the first Test against West Indies starting in Dominica next week.

The Aussies have just completed a three-day warm-up match against a West Indies Board President's XI in Antigua where a few players put their hands for selection.

With Steve Smith, David Warner, Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Johnson all rested because of their IPL duties and Shane Watson arriving late because of the birth of his child, it was an opportunity for players to put their hands up for selection.

Batsman Shaun Marsh scored the tourists only century in the match so he would be nailed on to claim the number six five spot ahead of Adam Voges, while Mitchell Marsh did not have the most productive match, with bat or ball, to slot in ahead of Watson and bat at number six.

Whatever Lehmann and the selectors decide they will have to make some tough choices as Australia build up towards the Ashes in England in July.

After the match Lehmann said: "I think it's going to have to be a late call. I'd love to give you the side earlier, but it's going to have to be a late call because this pitch here (in Antigua) changed quite a lot in the 24 hours leading up to the tour game.

"So it's going to be a really tight call either way we go."

The first Test will be followed by second match, in Jamaica, on 11 June before Australia head off to England.
