Usman Khawaja, who returned to the Test team after two years, said: “It’s always a pleasure to have the opportunity. I haven’t been in a match for about a month – yet it won’t take long to get the rhythm. If I can get down to play and bat then I will find that rhythm.
After playing 44 Tests, 40 ODIs and 9 T20I matches for Australia, Khwaja scored 4,072 runs with the help of 10 centuries and 33 fifties.
The 35-year-old star batsman said, “I know, if I play, I will only get a chance for one match.” So I will try to play well, to give the team something good in the absence of the head.
