Another Ashton has cricket fans scratching their heads

Ashton who?

No, not Ashton Agar, the 19-year-old spinner who was plucked from obscurity to play for Australia in the first Ashes Test against England at Trent Bridge, and responded by scoring a world record 98 batting at No.11 in the first innings.

Ashton Turner is the new name that has cricket fans scratching their heads.

The 20-year-old, also a spinner and also from Western Australia, is the latest left field selection, named in the Australian team for the three-day game against Sussex starting tonight in Hove.

Agar, and the spinner who missed out on playing in the first two Tests, Nathan Lyon, have all been named in the team that will be captained by Ed Cowan in the absence of Michael Clarke.

With spin certain to be factor in the third Test at Old Trafford starting on Thursday, the match against Sussex looms as an audition for the trio.

While he could have been forgiven for not enjoying the excitement of seeing Agar rescue Australia's innings at Trent Bridge after missing out on selection himself, Lyon said he had no ill feelings.

"I was as excited as everyone in Australia and being here on the tour with the boys to see Ashton make his debut as a 19-year-old for Australia, that's something pretty special," he said.

"And to see Ashton go so well there, I definitely didn't have any bitter-sweet feelings. I was very excited for him."

Turner gets his chance to play for Australia before he plays his first game for his state.

He and the 12th man for the match, Travis Head, are on the tour to England as development players and have been based in Hampshire, but have joined the Australian camp at various stages.

Meanwhile David Warner has put his hand up for a recall for the third Test, smashing 193 for Australia A against South Africa A in Pretoria.

Batting at No.4, Warner hit 29 fours and one six in a typically robust innings off 226 balls. He shared a 204-run partnership with Glenn Maxwell who made 100 not out.

Warner was suspended for the final match of the Champions Trophy and the Ashes tour matches against Somerset and Worcestershire after his drunken night out in Birmingham last month, where he punched England rival Joe Root at a nightclub.

He was sent to Africa to join the Australia A squad to get some time in the middle, and his big score will put pressure on Steve Smith and Phil Hughes to make some runs against Sussex to hold their place in the Australian line-up.
