Alex Doolan, who batted at No.3 in Australia's first centre-wicket practice in Potchefstroom in South Africa, made it clear that it is not necessarily the same order in which the team will bat in the first Test.


Doolan is the favourite to fill the void left by George Bailey in the batting order and make his Test debut against South Africa on February 12 at the Centurion.

However, speculation remains that instead of coming straight into Bailey's No.6 position, Doolan could bat at No.3 and push Shane Watson down the order.

Doolan, who scored a hundred and averaged 39 during the 2013-14 Shield season, is accustomed to batting at No.3 for Tasmania, The AAP reports.

He said he doesn't read much into it, and added that it's just a centre wicket session and everyone's batted in different spots.

Doolan is competing with Phil Hughes and Moises Henriques for the first Test, News.com.au reports.

He said he's yet to feel the pressure of confrontation with the world's No.1 Test nation.
