The New Zealanders will be hoping he gets the nod in Australia's playing XI, having scored 1, 0, 6 and 0 in his last four ODI knocks against the Black Caps.
Retired quick Mitchell Johnson has thrown his support behind the embattled Glenn Maxwell after the "Big Show" was fined for being critical of Victoria and Australia teammate Matthew Wade. I think the wicketkeeper should be batting at seven unless you're trying to squeeze an extra bowler into your line-up.
"Because he's captain and he chooses the batting order".
Maxwell was controversially omitted from Victoria's Shield opener, but batted below Wade after regaining his spot in the state team. "I was disappointed with the comments he made".
"Victoria are flying at the moment, but he's not setting the world on fire himself".
"I don't think he [Maxwell] thought the words came out the way they actually did", Smith added. "It's good that he's honest, unfortunately it's not the greatest attitude to have, I reckon".
Speaking to another station, former Victoria captain Darren Berry wasn't too pleased either, as he slammed the all-rounder for making such statements in public.
His comments have gone down like a lead balloon with his Victorian teammates, after he said it affected his chance to break into the Australian Test side.
Canadiens late rally falls short in road loss to Sharks
Burns, firing the puck from all over the ice in the first, capitalized on a power play with a slapper from the top of the circle. Of course, the Canadiens now lead the league with 34 points (New York is one point back with one more game played).
The aggressive right hander had a thinly veiled swipe at the Victorian hierarchy for batting him at number six when he returned to the team. "Cameron White didn't come out and criticise Matthew Wade [.] you just don't do it".
Controversial Australian allrounder Glenn Maxwell has been fined and given a public dressing down by captain Steve Smith in a distracting prelude to the start of the Chappell Hadlee Trophy series at the Sydney Cricket Ground tomorrow.
"I thought I might have been a chance", Maxwell told reporters on Thursday.
"Yeah, we will (speak about it)", Lehmann said about the all-rounder's comments. "Wadey was obviously pretty disappointed as well, like all of the other players", he said.
"It's hard but again we'll work through it behind the scenes".
"The leadership group got together and made a decision to fine Glenn".
Maxwell has a first class average of nearly 40, and thought he might have been close to returning to the Test team when selectors flagged changes after the series was lost to South Africa in Hobart.
Australia awarded debuts to three batsmen for the third test against South Africa at Adelaide Oval last month after losing the first two matches in the series on the back of a string of batting collapses.
