Australian batsman Usman Khawaja has told that he is ready to bat at any position for the team if he gets selected for the upcoming Ashes 2021-22 series which is scheduled to commence from December 8 in Brisbane.
The 34-year-old Khawaja last played a Test match for the Australian team during the 2019 Ashes, where Australia retained the trophy after a draw in the marquee series. Meanwhile, there have been talks about adding him back to the squad after his amazing back-to-back centuries in the Sheffield Shield first-class competition.
The Southpaw on Tuesday while talking to the local media has revealed that he has told the selectors that he can bat at any position in the Ashes series against England.
“If you’re talking about me opening and whatnot, I’ve been batting four for Queensland for the last two years,” Khawaja told local media on Tuesday.
“So for me batting, if there’s a spot at five it’s as likely as opening the batting. It probably makes more sense in some respects.
“I think I’ve talked to selectors about it, I’ve told them I can bat anywhere along the order,”He added.
