Australia’s middle-order batsman Callum Ferguson has not given up on playing for his country again despite having last turned up for the Kangaroos in 2016.

With a bumper winter in England’s One-Day Cup and T20 Blast, Callum believes that his brilliant show in the English domestic season is enough to impress Australian selectors to win a slot back into the national side.  

As per reports in Fox Sports, Callum said, “The door’s open for a lot of guys to come in and make a mark. I’d like to think I’m still in the mix to get an opportunity at some point so I’ll be trying to do the same.”

The 33-year-old further added, “Here at the Redbacks everyone is striving for that, to be playing in the green and gold or the baggy green. I’ll certainly be striving to do that and if you’re playing in winning teams and winning trophies it puts your name up there.”

The right-hander enjoyed great time with the County side Worcestershire, averaging more than 90 (377 runs at 94.25) across his five one-dayers, as well as, amassed 390 runs at 48.75 over 10 T20s with a century, hoping to carry that form into this month’s One-Day Cup to earn national recall.

Callum signed off by saying, “You hope that runs, wherever you count them, are going to count for something. I’ll be hoping to do a little bit more of that here at the Redbacks and certainly if I can keep putting runs on the board it’s got to give me a chance.”
