Behrendorff using IPL for World Cup selection

The Australian cricket team has shaped up nicely for this year’s World Cup as it has recently defeated India and Pakistan at their respective homes. The inclusion of Steve Smith and David Warner might be a headache for the management now as domestic performers have cemented their spots by taking the team out of a tough spot.

One such player is Jason Behrendorff who came in place of injured Mitchell Starc and has been on a roll since. The pacer is currently playing for the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and is looking to cement a World Cup berth through this tournament.

“My spot is not certainly cemented down, that's for sure. Any performance here can really help me out. My main strength is swinging the new ball up front and taking some wickets. It was good that I was able to do that tonight and keep that in front of selectors' minds that I'm still bowling and bowling well,” he said after the match against CSK.
