Australian national selector Trevor Hans thinks Shaun Marsh’s international career is probably over, when he called Usman Khawaja “unfortunate”.
Khwaja and Marsh were among those who dropped Cricket Australia’s (CA) twenty-member list on Thursday.
Marsh, 3, last played for Australia in mid-2019, playing in 36 Tests, 73 ODIs and 15 T20s for the country.
Hones, however, said Marsh’s time to play for Australia was probably over.
“Shawn, you never said, and I will never say, but I think Shawn, now he’s 36 or 3’s, probably represents Australia,” he said in a video conference on Thursday.
“We’ve been talking to Shawn regularly for the last 12 months and he understands the situation. He’s a great player in domestic cricket, he’s played some very good innings for Australia in Test cricket and he won’t miss much.
“But the good thing is that he is continuing to play and playing domestic cricket as a senior player across Australia, he has played a big role and I like to suggest that it is very good for such players to continue playing and return to the state. I cricket. “
As for Khwaja, Holmes said leaving the left was the most difficult decision
The 33-year-old has not played for Australia since being dropped from last year’s Ashes series.
“Uthman is one of the unfortunate ones, no doubt about it,” Hons said. “As far as we know, Usman did not play cricket in any format for Australia last year after being dropped from the Ashes series.
“If I look at Test cricket, Usman’s form in domestic shield cricket did not claim that he was selected for Australia and I think it is fair. He did not play for Australia despite being very good in ODI cricket. But the territory he is managing is at the top like two of our unfortunate mistakes and a The dead have been looked after quite well there [Aaron] Finch, [David] Warner, [Steve] Smith and now Marnus Labuchagan so the time was very difficult for him and of course in T20 cricket he did not play for Australia for some time.
“Usman obviously got a ranking in a few forms of these games, but in the end this ranking was not enough to put him on the contract list.”
