Marsh set to bat at three on debut

Shaun Marsh will bat at number three when he makes his Test debut for Australia against Sri Lanka at Pallekele on Thursday.
The 28-year-old comes into the side as a straight swap for Ricky Ponting, who has flown back home to attend the birth of his second child.
Marsh, the son of former Australia vice-captain Geoff, is the only change to the tourists' XI following the first Test victory.
Captain Michael Clarke has stuck with the three paceman that helped get the job done in Galle, meaning New South Welshman Trent Copeland retains his place.
Copeland, Ryan Harris and Mitchell Johnson will be joined by spinner Nathan Lyon, who captured six wickets on his Test debut.
Australia: Michael Clarke (captain), Shane Watson, Phillip Hughes, Shaun Marsh, Michael Hussey, Usman Khawaja, Brad Haddin, Trent Copeland, Ryan Harris, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Lyon.
