News Corp’s The Daily Telegraph is today reporting that embattled Australian opener Cameron Bancroft has been dropped from the XI ahead of the third Ashes Test at Headingley tonight.

The West Australian has made paltry scores of just 8, 7, 13 and 16 in his four digs atop the order, and will make way for Marcus Harris for the pivotal clash in Leeds.

The Daily Telegraph’s Ben Horne is also reporting that Marnus Labuschagne has officially been handed Steve Smith’s spot after the former skipper was ruled out with concussion earlier, while the Aussies will look to give England a taste of their own Jofra Archer medicine in bringing James Pattinson back in at Peter Siddle’s expense.
