Unless they’d already decided to drop Wade, I don’t see why Marsh is batting at three.
Funny you saying that as I was just saying the same thing. Wade hasn't really justified his position as a batsman in this series, so one thought was replace Ussie with Marsh, Smith at 4 and Lambshanks at 5.

I'm not sure that Marsh has justified his selection but he has batted better than Ussie in this game

England management always mismanage injured players and ruin them.
Wood had years of injury nightmares and Roland-Jones got rushed back too quick. Flintoff had his career cut short.
I have had a calf injury in the past and its a tricky muscle to heal.

Would have done so again in 2015, but the ECB knew their mob couldn't hack a 4 month tour down under so pressed for the 14/15 ashes to move a year earlier and got their way.
this, we got the double ashes in one year because it would be unreasonable to have a team come out for the ashes and stay for the World Cup. be nice if they didn’t forget about it

The only players coming into the side are Labuschagne and perhaps Starc. There’s no way they’re going to bring marsh in as well after we’ve basically beaten England twice already.

Could have sworn Labuschagne played. I dunno but I’d give serious consideration into bringing the bloke Smith in

Jimmy Anderson ruled out of the series, what a surprise.

Probably a good thing for England that Anderson has been ruled out, would have been a big risk to take him into a test so soon after a calf injury.

On top of that he would further weaken their batting if he replaced Woakes.

Pretty sure the glut of Ashes was to do with catching up after holding them off for the 2012 Olympics. Don’t think it had anything to do with the World Cup.

I doubt it; their bowlers have still shown very little ability to get him out. Even when they injured him, he was on his way to another ton.
If I was an English bowler I'd take a lot of confidence him struggling in the tour match. Potentially still not back to his best or struggling mentally
