Warner comes back to national hues - yet in an informal warm-up match - on the back of a productive IPL with Australia expecting to choose what their top-request mix will be for the World Cup having hung together eight sequential triumphs with Warner and Steven Smith still missing from the side.

The week in Brisbane is especially an opportunity to explore different avenues regarding different blends, however this line-up meant that Warner may not simply stroll once more into the opening position for the World Cup.

Finch and Khawaja set up together seven opening stands more than 50 in the ten matches against India and Pakistan, including associations of 193, 209 and 134 as Australia's batting request met up following a protracted neglected period in one-day cricket.

Warner's IPL structure makes him an alluring prospect to convey further capacity to the top request for the World Cup, yet in the number one spot up to the preparation camp in Brisbane both Finch and head mentor Justin Langer held back before nailing down his position.

"It's amazing to have alternatives," Langer said. "The way Usman and Finchy have batted together in the Test matches, they played together in the UAE, in addition to what they did in the last two one-day arrangement is splendid. Dave Warner's a world-class opening batsman, Shaun Marsh's been splendid at No. 3, great at No. 4, Steve Smith can presumably bat where he enjoys or wherever he is in the side, so it's truly energizing to have those five hundred-creators available to us truly."

Kane Richardson, who is one of the save pace bowlers, was given an early trip as Australia played 12 which was a reasonable sign that he is the leader to supplant Jhye Richardson should he not recoup from his separated shoulder he endured in the UAE

Smith, who like Warner has been sick driving into the preparation camp, was set to take his normal space at No. 4. Australia will probably experiment with different alternatives over the three matches against a debilitated New Zealand side.
