With just two appearances since ICC World Cup 2011, England all-rounder is desperate to win back his place in the One-Day International (ODI) team.

Wright felt that a slot opening up after England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) sacking of batting maverick Kevin Pietersen has presented him with the perfect window of opportunity to cement his place in the team.

After England’s nightmarish tour of Australia, the team is looking to rebuild under the new regime with barely year to go for the ICC World Cup 2015. The big-hitting Wright told BBC that he was looking for a fresh start ahead of the England’s tour of West Indies. The tourists kick start the tour against University of West Indies Vice Chancellor’s XI, ahead of their Twenty20 Internationals (T20I) and ODIs against West Indies.

Wright concluded by saying that he was looking forward to scoring big runs in the upcoming series in an aim to nail down a place in next year’s World Cup squad.
