For those guys it’s gut-wrenching, but they’re also supporting the rest of the group. That’s the atmosphere we have in the dressing room.”Handscomb is likely to slot into the No.4 position, with Steve Smith moving up to replace the injured Usman Khawaja, who has also withdrawn from the squad.Usman Khawaja had injured himself while batting and the top order batsman will be out of action for approximately three weeks, which also leaves him in doubt for the start of the Ashes on August 1.advertisementMatthew Wade meanwhile has been called up to the squad as a replacement for Marcus Stonis, who has a side problem.
