Wicketkeeper Matthew Wade says he’s not surprised by his omission from Australia’s 15-man World Cup squad.
Wade played in every game of Australia’s 4-1 ODI series win over South Africa last year, but was unable to keep Brad Haddin out of the World Cup squad.
The 27-year-old said he was desperate to play in the World Cup on home soil, but is content in the knowledge that he did all he could to give himself a chance.
“I felt I was close,” Wade is quoted as saying by AAP.
“I thought they would go with Hadds, but I felt like I had done everything that I could to put my name out there to get picked.
“When I got the call on Saturday to tell me that I wasn’t in, I wasn’t surprised. But I felt like I’d given myself the best chance to get picked in the team.”
Wade has played 47 ODI’s for Australia.
