Alex Carey has represented Australia in white-ball cricket. Carey, in the future, can be a contender for Australia in Tests but he wants to be good enough before featuring for the national team in the longest format. His words prove, if patience is a virtue of making a successful start, he has well got it.
Australia’s greatest wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist is also in favor of Alex Carey. He believes Carey is almost as good as Australia Test captain and wicket-keeper batsman Tim Paine.
Alex Carey has a neat glovework to complement his batting expertise. It does not matter to him much if he does not feature in the longest format because he is a very happy man to feature in the white-ball cricket for Australia. Carey, however, stated he would continue to out good for the Test team.
“If I play for Australia just with the white ball, I’m a very happy man,” Carey stated in a video interview on Thursday.
It’s been a really enjoyable couple of seasons playing for Australia in T20 and ODI. I hopefully will continue to learn and be good enough one day to earn a Test cap. There’s a lot to do between now and then and if it does happen.
Carey has played 36 ODIs for Australia and 28 T20Is. He averages 34 in the ODIs and 15 in the shortest format but has a sensational strike rate of 124.46 in the T20Is.
