<p>Warner concluded his Test cricket career last week, having played his last match against Pakistan.</p>
<p>Numerous players from the current Test team, including Marcus Harris, Matthew Renshaw, Steve Smith, Cameron Bancroft, and Cameron Green, have been mentioned.</p>
<p>Australia’s The Herald Sun reports that Green may return to the Test eleven in his chosen No. 4 place, although Smith seems to be the front-runner to partner with Usman Khawaja in the opening slots.</p>
<p>The article also asserts, nevertheless, that the selectors may not disclose the batting order while deciding the team lineup for the two-Test series that will begin in Adelaide on January 17.</p>
<p>Since Renshaw is anticipated to be the backup hitter, Harris and Bancroft will have to wait for their opportunities.</p>
<p>Marnus Labuschagne, a talented Australian cricketer, has urged Smith to succeed as a Test opener. “I’m certain Steve will do well if he receives the go-ahead from (captain) Pat Cummins, the selectors, and the coaches. On Tuesday, Labuschagne added, “Cameron Green’s record at No. 4 for Western Australia is amazing.”</p>
<p>If Smith plays as an opener, former Australia captain Michael Clarke even goes so far as to say that he will be the world’s best Test hitter in less than a year.</p>
<p>“Within a year, Smith will be the most effective Test opener if team management gives him the opportunity to begin the batting. He is a really talented player. He can bat anyplace if he can bat at three. He is decent technically, has excellent ball control, and has excellent hand-eye coordination. “Yeah, he might get lbw or knick one every now and then, but tell me something that doesn’t,” Clarke said on the ESPN podcast Around the Wicket.</p>
