Katich’s thinks his chance has gone

Former Australia stalwart Simon Katich says it is highly unlikely that he’ll be recalled to the side following the recent changes to the selection system.
Katich was a high profile absentee when the Australian Cricket Board announced its list of players who were to be awarded contracts for the upcoming season, despite being one of his nation’s most consistent players in recent years.

The selectors reasoned that they were looking to the future, picking the likes of Phil Hughes, Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh as they look to the future after a disappointing few years for Australian cricket. Fans of free sports betting will be wondering if they can bounce back.

However, since the decision was announced, a review of the selection process has been conducted and it has been recommended that it be restructured for the good of Australian cricket. Those looking at the mobile betting will be wondering what sort of impact this will have.

While admitting that the recommendations certainly won’t harm his chances of a recall, the left-handed opener maintains that it is still unlikely he’ll be brought back into the side.

“I haven’t read too much into that to be honest because I’ve got to go out there and perform this season for NSW and that’s all my focus is on at this point in time,” said Katich, who has played 56 Test matches.

“Who’s in charge I don’t think is going to make too much difference to my situation.”

The 36-year-old has admitted that it has been difficult watching his old teammates in their ongoing series against Sri Lanka and still believes he is more than good enough to play for the side. However, he freely admits that his exclusion has been somewhat of a blessing in disguise and says he is now fully focused on his form at domestic level.
