David Warner survives the axe of WTC finals, and Mitchell Marsh returns to the Australia squad

The opener of the Australian cricket team, David Warner, has survived being removed from the test squad and has secured a spot for himself in the finals of the world test championship and the Ashes squad. His selection comes at a time when there has been intense scrutiny over the test opener, despite a double century last year against South Africa in his hundredth test match.
Australia announced their squad for the high-profile series on Wednesday and also decided to bring back three players while sacrificing their spinners from the India series. Mitchell Marsh, who has regained his fitness, found his place back in the team along with Josh Inglis and Marcus Harris, making it to the 17-member roster.
National selection panel chair George Bailey said on Wednesday, April 19, that "the World Test Championship is the culmination of more than two years of consistent performance at Test level by the team and the individuals involved, leading into an Ashes series, which is always highly anticipated." "The UK is a very different assignment from our most recent tour of India, and some of the changes are based upon the conditions we are anticipating."
He further said that Marcus Harris, Josh Inglis, the reserve goalkeeper, and Mitchell Marsh would return to the squad and "provide valuable depth and flexibility within their respective skill sets."
