Queensland batsman Matt Renshaw has revealed he is happy to fit in anywhere within the batting order as he pushes for a recall to the Australian side.
The 26-year-old has played 11 Tests for Australia, having made his debut in 2016, but hasn't represented the national team since 2018.
His 11 Tests - between the age of 20 and 22 - brought about poor returns, with 636 runs at an average of 33.47 and only a single century.
However, a now matured Renshaw is eyeing off a return to the team, with David Warner potentially set to hang up the boots in the coming year or two, while the opening position alongside him is anything but secure with a number of players rotated through the role since Renshaw's last Test.
Usman Khawaja has been used alongside Warner most recently, however, both are 35 years of age.
It means the 26-year-old, who spent the winter in England playing for Somerset, is on the fringe of the national team once again, and put weight to his name with 620 runs at 47.69 in eight County Championship matches.
He also scored a century in the one-day cup.
While Renshaw opened in his 11 previous Tests for Australia, he told Cricket.com.au's The Unplayable Podcast that he is happy to fit anywhere in the order, as he does done with Queensland over the past few years due to a number of options at the top, including Joe Burns, Usman Khawaja and Bryce Street.
"Over the last couple years having batted in that middle-order for Queensland and being quite successful, I feel like I can fit in the side at any point," Renshaw said.
"I know that if I bat in the middle-order I'm quite strong against spin and if I'm opening the batting I can deal with the new ball as well so I'm not really too fussed about where I bat.
"At Queensland, our top five can all open the batting, so only two get to do it and when you've got Marnus (Labuschagne) at three, he's always going to take that spot."
Renshaw admitted it was strange to spend time at the top of the order during the English summer.
"They needed an opener, so it fit me to go back to the top," he said.
"It was a little bit strange at the start having not opened for a couple of years, but I enjoy the challenge of facing the new ball especially early in April and there's a few little sticky green wickets where you knew a ball might have your name on it.
"But that's the greatest part of opening is having that challenge."
Australia's next Test assignment will be home series against the West Indies and South Africa this summer, before road trips to India and England for the Ashes will take place.
