Why Marcus Stoinis will play in Canberra, according to Darren Lehmann
Former Australian coach Darren Lehmann is backing Marcus Stoinis to make his Test debut later this week.
Following a dominant performance over Sri Lanka – where Australia won by an innings and 40 runs – Stoinis was drafted into the squad ahead of the second and final Test in Canberra.
And Lehmann said he wouldn’t have been added into the squad until he was a realistic chance of playing.
“I think he’s going to play,” Lehmann told Levy and Riddell.
“With the wicket (in Canberra), they’ll want a little bit of extra bowling and he reverses the ball.
“The selectors like the look of Stoinis and how he (fits) in the side so I think they’ll probably play him.”
