Faulkner delighted with recall to Australian squad

Faulkner delighted with recall to Australian squad”

With most of the Indian players involved in Duleep Trophy, the selectors had named an XI comprising of relatively unknown players but it is a chance that they would relish the opportunity because not often that they get to face global opposition. "So those experiences will help us", Faulkner said after the team's training session at the MA Chidambaram stadium here.

"On the needle between the two teams, Smith said, "I think it will be played in good spirit". So, they certainly have got some really good spin options. "It is going to be a test and we're excited for it", Faulkner concluded.

From being surplus to requirements for Australia's winless Champions Trophy campaign in England, Faulkner is suddenly indispensable in India following injuries to pacemen Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and James Pattinson.

He is happy to be back after his absence from the squad. I had four months away from the game.

Faulkner was not given any sort of brief when he was dropped from the limited overs team but says he spent the time out of the game working hard on his fitness and game.

"I have been battling, probably the last 18 months. just physically with my knee and the state that it has been in". KL Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jadhav play for RCB in the Indian Premier League and some fans on social media accuse of being biased towards his RCB teammates.

"I hope so, he has got a pretty good record for us in the past year or two".

"It was pretty tough".

"But it is up to you to get back".

"I know before the last Ashes series there was a one-day series here as well". I am excited to back in the group. "It is a good opportunity against a tough opposition in their own country", he said.

When Australia toured India for a Test series early this year, the Bangalore match got mired in a controversy as Smith admitted to looking towards their dressing room for assistance on a DRS call and described it a "brain fade" moment.

Smith, who has eight ODI centuries, said he was not too concerned about the gulf between him and Kohli but to be successful in the series, they will have to get Kohli out cheaply.

The selections of Indian squad, however, did not go down well with Twitterati and they called this team a result of the "RCB quota" given by Virat Kohli.
