Langer, who also coaches the Western Australia side, believes that Shaun is in the form of his life, having scored 412 runs at an average of 82 in the domestic one-day cup. <p></p> <p></p>Western Australia beat Southern Australia in the final last evening; the had both Shaun and Mitchell Marsh in the ranks. Mitchell, in particular, scored run-a-ball 80 that guided his side to a win. <p></p> <p></p>According to a report published in <i>cricbuzz</i>, Justin said, "I've known Shaun since he was a little kid, I've never seen him bat as well as he's batting at the moment. <p></p> <p></p>Both Marsh brothers will be facing stiff competition from the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright for a place in the Australian side for the Ashes. <p></p> <p></p>"I'm looking forward to seeing that contest leading into The Ashes and see who's going to grab hold of that position," Langer quipped. <p></p> <p></p>"Whether it's Shaun or Mitch or any of the guys around Australia, the guy who can get Test hundreds should be batting at six. But I hope it's one of them," he concluded.
