Why Marcus Stoinis will play in Canberra, according to Darren Lehmann

Macquarie Sports Radio Breakfast

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.”
