Australia’s wicket-keeper batsman Alex Carey aims Test caps


Melbourne: Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey highly aims a Test cap through a learning process while representing the national team in white-ball format. 

“If I play cricket for Australia just with the white ball I’m a very happy man. It’s been a couple of enjoyable seasons for me playing for Australia in the T20s and one-dayers. I continue, hopefully, to learn and be good enough, one day, to learn and earn a Test cap,” Carey said in a video conference.

The left-handed batter said that he tries to be positive and learn all the time while being on the field. “I’m learning about my game every time I go out and play cricket, whether it’s with the red ball or the white ball,” he said.

Carey recently has a decent red-ball form in recent seasons. In the 2019-20 Sheffield Shield, he made 386 runs from seven innings at 55.14, including two hundreds and a fifty for South Australia.

“I have played maybe six to eight first-class games in the last two summers,” Carey said in a video conference. “It isn’t a lot of cricket but the positive for me is that in those limited opportunities I’ve done really well scored a few hundreds back to back there,” he concluded.
