Australias depth is failing the team

Justin Langer has admitted that nobody is banging the door down as he mulls how to fix both Australia’s top six and a national batting crisis.

Langer has added Marnus Labuschagne to what is now a 14-man squad for the fourth Domain Test against India.

Labuschagne is a chance to take Mitch Marsh’s place in the XI that folded in Melbourne, where the tourists retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy by snatching a 2-1 series lead.

Langer says that regardless of how much he tinkers before the fourth Test starts on Thursday, it’s clear there are big batting problems that extend beyond the squad.
