Glenn Maxwell's late inclusion in the Ashes squad might be to cover for an injury concern.but not just David Warner's.

Australia confirmed Maxwell's name soon after Smith's comments.

The first Test match gets underway at the Gabba in Brisbane tomorrow and vice-captain Warner felt a twinge in his neck during training. Even though Warner has been confident of being fit for the first Ashes Test on Thursday, the selection doesn't want to take any chance it seems and called in Maxwell.

Warner reportedly suffered a sore neck during a training session while taking a high catch at the Gabba on Tuesday morning.

A day later, though, his captain said: "Davey's going well".

Skipper Steve Smith spoke on the issue and said, "They're thinking about it (bringing in a replacement player) at the moment, but Davey is confident he'll be okay".

Title II gives the FCC the authority to treat companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon as common carriers of internet content. The FCC in 2015 approved rules, on a party-line vote, that made sure cable and phone companies don't manipulate traffic.

Ballance's England team-mate Jake Ball, meanwhile, says he is out to prove himself in Australia after returning to full fitness in the nick of time for an Ashes debut. I've been very happy with what I've seen, ' Warner said.

"There is a lot of exciting young talent at the club, and hopefully I can put in some good performances so we can bring some silverware to Wales". He said he'll even bat like Shivnarine Chanderpaul if he has to bat that way. Marsh comes with a proven reputation in domestic cricket and having been a three-time Big Bash victor with the Perth Scorchers, he is sure to lend a lot of expertise to Glamorgan, for whom he played in the 2012 T20 campaign too.

"It's improved a fair bit over the last 24 hours".

Left-hander Marsh, 34, has been recalled to his national Test squad for the Ashes series against England.
