The younger of the Marsh brothers, who scored a promising 96 against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a> in Durban earlier this year, is the only allrounder in the squad announced by Australia to face India in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/india-vs-australia-2018">four-match Test series</a> against India that begins in Adelaide on Thursday. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ask-bcci-why-shikhar-dhawan-and-ms-dhoni-arent-playing-domestic-cricket-sunil-gavaskar-773159">Ask BCCI why Dhawan and Dhoni aren't playing domestic cricket: Gavaskar</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"If you ask me, do I think he's better than last summer, I do. Have the results shown that yet? No, they haven't, but I think they will in time. I think he ll have a very good summer," Marsh's mentor, former Western Australia batsman Scott Meuleman, was quoted as saying in <em>Fairfax Media</em> on Tuesday. <p></p> <p></p>Marsh has had to continuously silence the criticism that surrounds his position in the side. However, this time, Meuleman revealed that he has made a few technical adjustments specially after Pakistan identified his weakness in his defence and pacer Mohammad Abbas dismissed him three times in UAE. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/virat-kohli-is-the-steve-smith-australia-dont-have-gary-cosier-773103">Virat Kohli is the Steve Smith Australia don t have: Gary Cosier</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Meuleman said that Marsh had to get his head forward "10 to 15 centimetres" when he played the ball which would get him in a better position to play the delivery in front. He also explained that most batsmen tend to move their heads towards the off, unlike India captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli/">Virat Kohli</a>, who has his head "dead level". <p></p> <p></p>"If you drop the ball from your eyes or your nose straight down you're trying to get it to hit the big toe," Meuleman said. <p></p> <p></p>"If you get into that position his head won't be over [towards off stump]. We're trying, when he steps, to get his head into a more positive position, especially for the ones straight. We've worked to keep his eyes level." <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/im-looking-forward-to-seeing-geoff-lawson-mitchell-marsh-responds-to-brutal-criticism-773088">I'm looking forward to seeing Geoff Lawson: Mitchell Marsh responds to brutal criticism</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Meuleman also wants Marsh to be brave against India's spin sensation <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ravichandran-ashwin/">Ravichandran Ashwin</a>, the second fastest to 200 Test wickets and fastest to 250 and 300 scalps. <p></p> <p></p>"Sometimes you can go into your shell a little bit. It doesn't mean dancing down the wicket and hitting it out of the ground, it means getting down and hitting the ball into a gap and getting one. It's about using your feet and being positive, Meuleman said. <p></p> <p></p>"He's worked a lot on sweeping, but I've hardly seen him play a sweep at all. There's things he's worked on a lot which no one has seen yet. I think in time they'll come out, definitely. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ricky-ponting-reveals-detailed-plan-to-counter-virat-kohli-772902">Ricky Ponting reveals detailed plan to counter Virat Kohli</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>"The irony of it is, he had done a lot of work to get his spin a bit better and ended up getting out to the pace bowling [in the UAE]." <p></p> <p></p>Meuleman said that despite his struggles, Marsh said he is still in a positive frame of mind. "I think it's important for me to go back to that," Marsh said. <p></p> <p></p>"I feel like I was batting really well last summer. I feel like I'm batting really well at the moment. I've still got that great confidence I had last year in myself. Hopefully I'll be able to get a few runs."
