Ignore any silly blogs calling for a recall for Ashton Agar!
Following defeat against South Africa in the first Test of a three-match series in Perth, Australia have recalled Joe Burns for the injured Shaun Marsh and have also granted a long awaited Test call-up for the extremely unfortunate Callum Ferguson for the second Test in Hobart. South Australia captain Ferguson will be 32 on November 21st and would surely have earned more than thirty ODI caps and three T20I appearances for his country if it wasn’t for a series of knee injuries. If CJ Ferg (That’s probably what his mates call him!) does debut, at 31 he’ll have a head start on some that have made their Test bows in recent times. Look no further than Australia teammate Adam Voges, 35 when he first wore the baggy green. In the last month Ferguson has made scores of 154 in a List A match and 101 in a First Class appearance. The possibility of a five year plus, few thousand runs international career could still be a possibility for the North Adelaide born right-hander.
