Peter Nevill is open to a promotion in Australias batting order ahead of Mitchell Marsh, as the captain Steven Smith and the coach Darren Lehmann ponder how to get the best out of a middle-order duo who are yet to place their stamp on a Test match with the bat.As highlighted by the selection chairman Rod Marshs reference to Jackson Birds batting as a factor in his non-selection, Australia need to find a way to get more out of their lower-order batting on the days when the top five do not make the desired tallies of runs.It was a weakness exploited ruthlessly by Sri Lankas spinners during their recent clean sweep of a Test series, and a South African attack led by Dale Steyn will be eager to do likewise down under, this time with pace. Neither Marsh (averaging 24 after 18 Tests) nor Nevill (20.88 after 15 Tests) have been able to impose themselves, too often opening the door to the Australian tail.While conventional wisdom has it that allrounders tend to bat at No. 6 and wicketkeepers at No. 7, Nevill and Marsh appear stylistically suited in opposite roles. Nevills busy but not overly histrionic batting has been most successful at No. 6 for New South Wales, where he averages 42.73 with six centuries and a highest score of 235 not out.Meanwhile, Marsh is much more of a free-spirited hitter, capable of changing the momentum of a game after the fashion of Nevills predecessor Brad Haddin or, in earlier years, Andrew Symonds. Nevill said he would happily move up the order, should Smith decide this was a better balance for the Test team. Id happily do whatever the skipper asked me to do, Nevill told ESPNcricinfo. Wherevers best for the team Im happy to bat wherever. Your role at No. 7 is either the teams going really well and you need to go out there and look to push the game along with an eye on a declaration.Youre either that or five for not too many and you need to go out there and guts it out and put a partnerships together with whoever youve got at the other end, and batting with the tail as well. So its usually one of those two scenarios Ive found being in the Australian team.For his part, Marsh is aware his place is under plenty of scrutiny going into this week. He is trying to focus on positive thoughts and an aggressive batting plan, the better to exploit his obvious power with the willow. Theres no doubt Im probably under a little bit of pressure, but I think if I go into the week thinking like that Im probably not going to enjoy it, he said.Its a home Test match, Im going to prepare as best as I ever have, and go out there and really enjoy myself and not focus on myself to much. I really just want to play for this team and play to win. Every time you bat you just try to bat as long as you can. For me its more about trying to score runs and being positive, and when Im doing that my feet move better and I get into better positions even to leave the ball, so thats my focus.While indicating an eagerness to hang onto his No. 6 berth, Marsh did agree his seam and swing had evolved to a point that a lower order commission would be plausible in the context of a greater bowling load in the field.I certainly want to remain an allrounder, I bat at six. But if that did come up Id be happy to do it, he said. I feel like my bowlings improved a lot over the last 18 months, and its gotten to a point now where Ive had a few occasions where blokes have gone down and Ive had to step up to the third seamer role. Ive done it before, but I really enjoy batting at No. 6 and want to stay there as long as I can.

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Sydney FC skipper Alex Brosque has declared this years ladder-leading squad the best hes seen in his eight seasons at the A-League club.The former Socceroo celebrated his 150th game in the Sky Blue with a goal in their 4-1 rout of Perth on Sunday that extended their season-opening winning streak to six.The title heavyweights are now one win off breaking Melbourne Victorys record seven successive wins to kick off their title-winning 2006-07 campaign.Brosque said he couldnt remember a Sydney FC unit as dominant as the current version.You go through pre-seasons hoping that youll get a start like this, but in the A-League, its that tough and anyone can beat anyone on their day, Brosque said.It makes it even more special what weve done. Six games that weve won in a row, the FFA Cup as well, making the final there, its not easy.Its a difficult competition. The foreigners will tell you that. From week to week, if youre not as close to your best as possible, youre not going to win.Ive never seen a team at Sydney since Ive been here, start this way, even play this way, dominate games this way.ddddddddddddAhead of next weeks clash against Brisbane, Sydney FC are six points clear of second-placed Melbourne City and 16 ahead of defending premiers Adelaide in last place.However Brosque, who at 33 years of age is the oldest player on the Sky Blues roster, urged his playing group not to get carried away with their early-season success.He was quick to point out how the club were sitting comfortably in the top four last season before winning just one of their final 12 games and missing the finals.There is a long way to go. Were not getting carried away, he said.(The coaching group is) not going to let us and we cant afford to because we started well last year and then we fell away. We need to just maintain and keep doing what were doing. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
