“I feel like in the one-day game I’ve got the ability to win games with the bat,” Wade said as quoted by cricket.com.au. “I think you need a little bit more balance – keeping and batting – in one-day cricket. I’m the man for the job. I’ve been in the one-day team consistently since the end of the (2015) World Cup, so I feel like I’ve had a good amount of games to back it up and feel comfortable,” he added.

Wade, wasn’t picked for the T20 World Cup 2016 that took place in India as the selectors went with Peter Nevill for the T20 format.
