Adelaide: Feb 13, 2012 

 

Australian batsman Peter Forrest says his wedding can be put on hold should he be selected for Australia’s tour of the West Indies next month. 

 

Forrest, who was handed his ODI debut against India in Adelaide, impressed one and all with his swashbuckling knock of 66. 

 

Forrest’s wedding to his fiancée Rachel clashes with Australia’s ODI and Test series in the Caribbean that is supposed to commence in March. But unlike former Australian cricketer Adam Voges, Forrest does not choose to prefer marriage over cricket. 

 

“That team (for the West Indies) is not even picked yet, it’s a long way down the track but hopefully if I keep scoring runs we can make a tough decision there,” Forrest said today. 

 

“I’m pretty sure if I get picked there is only one thing to do, I am definitely going to the West Indies.” 

 

Forrest had no idea whether he would be representing his country internationally, when the New South Wales-born cricketer planned his wedding dates. 

 

But ever since moving to Queensland, and with a taste of international cricket under his belt, he is keen to play for Australia in every form of the game. His statistics in first-class cricket are far better than in the limited overs format. 

 

“I’d like to think I can play all forms of the game,” Forrest told The Courier-Mail

 

“I think I am a better player now, I have made a few technical changes which have helped this year.”
