Head feels with Australian middle-order:-

But the opener is setting to make a comeback in the squad for the ODIs against Sri Lanka and with the Australian middle order, Head feels there is little chance of him making it to the No.5 spot.

Before leaving for Sri Lanka, Head was quoting as saying by cricket.com.au on Sunday, “It means I will probably not open the innings in the ODI series.

I am realistic about the fact that David and Finch will come back together at the top of the order and then you have a middle-order that is not short of batsmen in that order, so getting opportunities there is not easy.”
