Australian pacer Clint McKay has expressed his desire to stay consistent and retain his place in the Australian side. McKay aims to stay around to feature in the ICC 2015 World Cup. He’s also keen to fight his way into the Test side.

McKay has played just one test match for the Aussies at Perth in 2009 against West Indies. The fast bowler hopes to earn a recall through his performances in the ODIs. “I love playing one-day cricket for Australia and I’ll do everything I can to make sure I’m still around for the next World Cup. But I’ve played one Test and I don’t want to be left as a one-Test wonder,” McKay was quoted as saying by Australian Associated Press.

 ”I’d love to play one more and I’m doing everything I can to make sure that happens by ticking all the boxes and just doing everything I can. At the end of the day if I don’t make it, well at least I know I gave it the best shot,” he added.

McKay admits that pace isn’t his asset but is confident of his accuracy to earn him accolades. “I obviously don’t have the pace of some of the other kids coming through do like [James] Pattinson, [Mitchell] Starc, [Pat] Cummins or [Josh] Hazlewood,” he said.

“But my sort of strength is consistency and making sure I’m keeping things tight. I think in the right conditions I’ve got something to offer in Test cricket and I’m doing everyone to one day get that second Test match.”

In the duration between ICC Champions Trophy and the NatWest ODI series, McKay worked hard at a pre-season training program in England. Along with Mitchell Johnson, Mckay is likely to lead the pace attack for Australia.
