"It's a lot of experience [for me now], coming up against one of the best sides in the world and understanding a bit more about my game, and how I need continue to get better to stay at this level and succeed," Behrendorff was quoted as saying by Canberra Times on Saturday. <p></p> <p></p>Naturally, he wants to make himself a strong candidate for the World Cup next year through performing in limited-overs format. Avoiding the long format also gives him the chance to keep himself fit. "Short format cricket is the answer [for my body] at the moment, so T20 and one-day cricket. Test cricket and four-day cricket for the Shield stuff has been put on hold until after the Big Bash," the 28-year-old said. <p></p> <p></p>He continued "A massive goal [playing World Cup]. I think anyone playing for Australia at the moment has that goal in mind, so that's in the back of my head and really working towards that."
