The recently concluded test series between Australia and New Zealand was simply enthralling, as one witnessed some spectacular individual performances. But the series was a matter of rejuvenating his international career for Australian batsman Usman Khawaja.

Khawaja had a fantastic series as he scored two centuries in the first two games. He was unfortunate to be ruled out from the iconic Day and Night test. After resurrecting his test career, Khawaja has set his ambition to get back into the ODI side.

 

 

“I talked to selectors and I think at the end of the day they just weren’t fully comfortable with me at the time coming back from my knee injury,” Khawaja said. ”I felt like I was ready to play but there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes. “I was disappointed but I moved on pretty quick.  You figure out a way to get past ups and downs. But at the same time I really want to play one-day cricket for Australia.”

“It’s one of those goals I’ve had for a while and it will remain one of those goals even though I’m playing Test cricket right now. Obviously my first and foremost right now is trying to get myself fit if I get the opportunity to play these last couple of Test matches. But at the same time moving forward I want to play as many forms of the game for Australia as I can, I don’t want to limit myself,” elaborated Khawaja.
