Wright hoping World Cup will be a launch pad


England all rounder Luke Wright is hoping the Twenty20 World Cup in the West Indies will be the perfect platform to establish himself as part of Englandís team in the longer format of the game.

"I don't just want to make small contributions. I want to put in match-winning performances for the side, that is what will make me happy," The Mirror quoted Wright, as saying.

"Of course I want more, I wouldn't be human if I didn't want to improve my stats and be a main player for England and get the accolades that come from being a match-winner, but that is not my role at the minute," he added.

"There is a lot of cricket to be played and I'm desperate to be involved as a main character and not just a bit part player."

"The only way for that to be the case is if I put in performances on the field starting in the Caribbean and then for my county after that. The better I play the more I should get to do with England. I want to remain a firm pick in the short forms of the game, make my Test debut and go to Australia next winter," he added.
