He last played against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a> in Hobart where he failed to trouble the scorers. "I didn't put the runs on the board and, look, there's plenty of other guys out there scoring runs," Lynn told <em>Macquarie Radio</em> on Sunday. <p></p> <p></p>"I never get too far ahead of myself (and) the main thing is I'm having fun playing cricket for the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/brisbane-heat">Brisbane Heat</a>. Playing for Australia is a bonus. I'll never get too disappointed obviously you get a little disappointed if you're dropped but I have no expectation that I'm locked in for that side, because I didn't put the runs on the board. <p></p> <p></p>"I knew it was going to be 50-50 and it is what it is. I really enjoy my cricket for the Heat so I'm ok with it." <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-australia-2018-19-nathan-coulter-nile-slams-australian-selectors-for-poor-communication-788001">Nathan Coulter-Nile slams Australian selectors for poor communication</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Ironically, Lynn smashed 33 from 34 balls to top score as the Heat thrashed <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/perth-scorchers">Perth Scorchers</a> in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/big-bash-league-2018-19">Big Bash League 2018-19</a> (BBL) five wickets a day after the ODI squad was announced. The match also marked the return of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/cameron-bancroft/">Cameron Bancroft</a>, among the three involved in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/ball-tampering">ball-tampering scandal</a>. <p></p> <p></p>"(Bancroft) played a couple of balls and Jimmy [James Pattinson] was into him: 'Mate you had nine months to get that front pad out of the way' and stuff like that. It was good banter," Lynn said. <p></p> <p></p>"'Bangers' is a good kid, one of the hardest trainers I've ever seen so he's going to come back really strong, but I still think there's going to be a couple of guys ahead of him (for a national call-up)." <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-australia-ridiculous-selections-must-stop-says-shane-warne-787270">Ridiculous selections must stop, says Shane Warne</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Lynn reckons Bancroft has a long way to go before he can don the canary yellow colours. "There's two blokes in our side in <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/matthew-renshaw/">Matthew Renshaw</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/joe-burns/">Joe Burns</a> who deserve a chance at the next level again," Lynn said. <p></p> <p></p>"I know JL (Australia coach Justin Langer) is a big fan of 'Bangers' so he's going to be I won't say gifted a spot but be more in favour. But hopefully the two Queensland boys can get it done because they're two quality players." <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Lynn reckons Renshaw can be fielded in all the three formats. "He's the type of bloke that doesn t always come to an optional training session, but that's because he knows his game inside out, he's happy to take on the spin like you have to," Lynn said. <p></p> <p></p>"He's a little smart arse, but I think that works for him. He puffs his chest out, he gives a lot of stick out, but he cops it too, and is happy to move forward with it. <p></p> <p></p>"I think he's got to play Test cricket. I think he's the best batsman in Australia in the longer format of the game, and down the track I think he can play all formats for Australia."
