George Bailey determined to earn back Test spot

George Bailey attributed his recent form for Australia to luck and his superb exploits in the One day International (ODI) series against India, which preceded the Ashes series. The Australian ODI captain was adjudged Australia’s player of the year in the 50 over format.

Bailey said he could not wait to earn the Test cap that he recently lost to rookie Alex Doolan and praised his fellow compatriots who have been instrumental in mauling England over the course of the last two months.

If current skipper George Bailey‘s groin strain starts to ache in Perth on Friday, the fast bowler, who is the vice-captain, will lead his country against England, which shows how much Australian selectors think of him with Michael Clarke, Brad Haddin, Shane Watson and David Warner rested for the ODI clash.

According to Telegraph.com.au, it is an incredible show of faith considering Johnson’s well-publicised battles with family and personal issues at various stages of his roller-coaster career, although it is also a richly deserved appointment considering he has never been in better form, on and off the field.
