Nevill full of mixed emotions ahead of Ashes debut

AUSTRALIAN debutante Peter Nevill says he’s full of mixed emotions are he prepares for his first Test in the second Ashes clash against England on Thursday.

Nevill was a last minute call up in to the side after Brad Haddin withdrew from the Lord’s clash, which starts at 8pm AEST tonight, due to family reasons.

Nevill says his thoughts are with Haddin’s family, while England captain Alastair Cook has echoed Nevill’s sentiments on behalf of the hosts.


It’s the second change expected to be announced today, with Shane Watson said to have been replaced in the side by fellow allrounder Mitch Marsh.

Adam Voges is expected to field at first slip in place of Watson.

Australia lost the first Test by 169 runs inside four days.
