Quiney feels hes not ready for call up
Victorian batsman Rob Quiney, who earned a call to play for the Australian Twenty20 squad, has said he does not feel that he is ready for international cricket.
Quiney was named in the squad for Sunday’s match against New Zealand at the SCG, with injured Australian vice-captain Michael Clarke to be rested.
The 26-year-old was thrilled with the news, which came shortly after he was dismissed for a run-a-ball 50 in Victoria’s day-night win over New South Wales.
But he was frank when asked whether he felt ready to take the next step in his career.
“No I don’t, at the moment I``m trying to cement a spot in this side (with Victoria) and be more productive so when the likes of Brad Hodge, David Hussey and Cameron White aren’t playing that the team can rely on me for runs,” Quiney said.
“That’s my goal at the moment and unfortunately I missed out (on big scores) the last couple games, but it was good to get a start tonight.”
