Ashes 2021-22: Greg Blewett backs Usman Khawaja over Marcus Harris for Hobart Test

Greg Blewett has called for Australian selectors to promote SCG century-maker Usman Khawaja to the top of the order at Marcus Harris’ expense for the fifth Ashes Test in Hobart next week.

The former Australian opener was concerned with Harris’ lack of big scores across his stop-start 14-Test career, with zero tons, three half-centuries and a mediocre average of 26.

The Victorian and ex-WA left-hander’s best performance of the series was in the Boxing Day Test, top-scoring with 76 in difficult conditions to help his side re-claim the Ashes and take a 3-0 lead.

But he has struggled to capitalise on his starts other than that, dismissed for 38 and 27 respectively this match.
